Oops, he did it again.
British welterweight lightning rod Paul Daley, booked to make his return to the United Kingdom opposite Bulgarian bruiser Jordan Radev, weighed in six pounds over the limit today (Sept. 9, 2011) at the weigh in event for BAMMA 7, scheduled for tomorrow night (Sept. 10) at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, England.
This time, he may have an excuse (to an extent) as the nearby sauna used for cutting weight malfunctioned, stranding several fighters looking to sweat off those last few ounces.
Shortly after the weigh-ins concluded, though, Daley took to Facebook and declared his fight was off altogether and he was "done." However, Radev agreed to fight "Semtex" at 176-pounds and the bout is now back on after some negotiating by all parties, including BAMMA.
Daley heads back to the UK with his tail between his legs, having suffered back-to-back defeats under the Strikeforce banner to Nick Diaz and Tyron Woodley. His last win came in his BAMMA debut (where he also missed weight) via crushing knockout over Yuya Shirai earlier this year.
