Paul 'Semtex' Daley vs Lyman Good Elite XC fight likely for September 20

Undefeated 170-pound Ring of Combat champion Lyman Good (7-0) is expected to ink a six fight deal with Elite XC shortly, according to

In addition, the New Jersey native and Team Tiger Schullman-trained fighter is rumored to make his promotional debut at "The Pit" in Albuquerque, N.M., on September 20 against Cage Rage Welterweight Champion Paul "Semtex" Daley.

Good most recently won a unanimous decision over Alex Aquino at Ring of Combat 18 in March. He also holds notable victories over "The Ultimate Fighter" contestants Mike Dolce and Eric Charles.

If this fight does go down on September 20, it will be the first for "Semtex" on U.S. soil since a January 25 knockout over Sam Morgan. Daley went into a quasi-retirement after the win and just recently returned to action with a first round knockout victory over Bojan Kosednar at a Cage Warriors show in his hometown of Nottingham, England, in July.

Daley has a huge following in England and is expected to turn a lot of heads when he makes his return to the states. He's on a six fight winning streak and has stopped his last five opponents with strikes. He represents one of the biggest threats to Elite XC Welterweight Champion Jake Shields' crown.

Albuquerque native Joey Villasenor is also expected to be in action at "The Pit" on September 20. He was originally rumored to be facing Murilo "Ninja" Rua in the main event, but that fight appears to be scrapped for now. A replacement for Ninja has not been announced.
