daley-bags

"Some fighters in his position wouldn’t have wanted to fight another opponent instead of Swick. I am getting a lot of praise for stepping in, but he’s done the same. He was due to fight in a massive bout and the winner was expected to get a title shot. Beating me at this point doesn’t guarantee him a title shot, but he wants to fight anyway. But that’s why I respect Kampmann ... This is going to be a war while it lasts but I will knock Kampmann out."

– Paul "Semtex" Daley talks to Telegraph.co.uk about his Octagon debut against Martin Kampmann at UFC 103 from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, on Sept. 19. The heavy-handed 26-year-old has vaulted himself to the upper echelon of welterweights after Mike Swick withdrew from the upcoming event -- but will "The Hitman" send him tumbling back down the ladder?
