Amarillo, TX. - July 26, 2010- It was formally announced today that UFC veteran, Paul "Semtex" Daley, has signed a one-fight deal with Shark Fight Promotions, a fast-rising fight promotion company based out of Amarillo, Texas. It has been confirmed that Daley will fight on the Shark Fights 13 card in September. Daley's opponent is yet to be determined and will be announced in the coming weeks.

"Words cannot express how elated we are that Paul Daley has agreed to fight for our organization. Daley is arguably one of the best 170-pound fighters in the world." states Brent Medley, president of Shark Fight Promotions.

Medley went on to say, "We are currently in the process of choosing Daley's opponent. Several marquee fighters are being considered and a decision will be made very soon. This is shaping up to be an incredible card! Numerous A-list fighters have been confirmed for the Shark Fights 13 roster."

Paul Daley (24-9-2) recently defeated Daniel Acacio via submission at Impact FC 2 - The Uprising in Sydney, Australia, and was riding a four -fight win streak prior to his loss to Josh Koscheck at UFC 113. Daley has fought for many notable organizations throughout his career, including EliteXC, Strikeforce, Maximum Fighting Championship, Pancrase and the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

He is also ranked #7 in the world in the welterweight division according to Sherdog.com. This will be Daley's first fight in the United States, following his highly publicized departure from the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

Daley had this to say, "I'm very excited to be fighting in the U.S. again. Despite my conduct during the Koscheck fight, which I agree is inexcusable; fans in the United States have been very supportive. For that I am very grateful."

Daley goes on to say that he will do whatever it takes to make amends, "I can't undo what has already been done, but I'm determined to prove to everyone that the fighter they saw at UFC 113 is not who I am. I am better than that and the fans deserve better than that. I plan to do whatever it takes to earn back their respect and the respect of everyone in the industry. I'm genuinely looking forward to fighting back in the U.S., on what I feel is one of the most impressive fight cards that has been pulled together in quite some time."

Paul Daley is just one of many A-list competitors that have been confirmed for Shark Fights 13. The impressive roster includes Keith Jardine, Trevor Prangley, Rameau Sokoudjou, Houston Alexander, Drew McFedries and Joey Villasenor. Shark Fight Promotions will announce the full fight card and additional details about the event soon! To learn more about Shark Fight Promotions, please visit www.sharkfights.com.
