Former UFC welterweight striker Paul Daley has been slapped with a 30-day suspension for his unprofessional conduct following a UFC 113 loss to Josh Koscheck in what was billed as a 170-pound number one contender's bout back on May 8.
Sherdog.com brings word from Collette Lepianay, information agent for the Governing Body of Alcohol, Races and Games of Quebec (RACJ), which oversees combat sports in the province.
"Semtex" exploded after he was outwrestled for three rounds on the televised portion of the "Machida vs. Shogun II" fight card. Koscheck neutralized the deadly hands of the British banger, effectively earning himself a spot as coach on the upcoming twelfth season of The Ultimate Fighter(TUF) opposite division champion Georges St. Pierre.
Following his expulsion from the world's largest fight promotion, Daley competed "Down Under," defeating Daniel Acacio via submission at Impact FC 2: "The Uprising" on July 18 in Sydney.
He's now slated to appear opposite Bellator standout Jorge Masvidal at Shark Fights 13 on Sept. 11 in Amarillo, Texas. Daley's suspension is not expected to conflict with that appearance.
Any MMA fans out there think that getting kicked out of the UFC was punishment enough? Or was today's suspension too lenient? Let's hear your take on "Kos-gate."
