Paul 'Semtex' Daley signs multi-fight contract with Strikeforce

The inevitable has come to fruition.

Paul Daley has signed on to fight for Scott Coker and the boys over at Strikeforce. As we originally reported back on Aug. 2, "Semtex" has agreed to a multi-fight deal and today the promotion has confirmed with MMAmania.com his addition to their growing welterweight roster.

The heavy-handed Brit has of course been looking for a new, more permanent home ever since delivering the cheap shot heard 'round the fighting world to Josh Koscheck following their UFC 113 bout where "Kos" took home a unanimous decision win and earned himself a shot at Georges St. Pierre's 170-pound title later this year.

UFC President Dana White kicked him to the curb, essentially banning the welterweight striker from the Octagon for life, but Strikeforce apparently has no qualms in employing the controversial slugger.

Daley was last seen in action at Shark Fights 13 back on Sept. 11, missing weight and outpointing Jorge Masvidal in Amarillo, Texas. Prior to that he went "down under" for Impact FC 2: 'The Uprising,' finishing Daniel Acacio in the third round with a forehead-splitting elbow.

An opponent has yet to be named for "Semtex's" promotional debut with the San Jose-base organization, but you have to believe that within the time frame of this contract, Daley and Strikeforce bad boy Nick Diaz will evenutally meet.

While we probably won't understand half of the pre-fight trash talk, it is something we can all look forward to anyway.

Who do you want to see Daley mix it up with first? Tatame.com says it could be Evangelista Santos in November. Thumbs up or down?
