Dana White: 'Paul Daley will never fight in the UFC again'




"He's done. I don't give a s--t if he's the best 170-pounder in the world. He'll never come back here again. I'm probably the most lenient guy in sports. And this is probably one of the most lenient organizations. We're all human, we all mistakes, things happen. There's no excuse for that. These guys are professional athletes. You don't ever hit a guy blatantly after the bell like that whether you're frustrated or not. It was probably one of the dumbest things I've ever seen. I don't care if he fights in every show all over the world and becomes the best and everybody thinks he's the pound-for-pound best in the world. He will never fight in the UFC ever again."

UFC President Dana White ends what could have been a promising Octagon career for Paul Daley, after the trash talking Brit took a swipe at UFC 113 opponent Josh Koscheck after the bell at last night's "Machida vs. Shogun II" event at the Bell Centre in Montreal. "Kos" utilized his wrestling to outpoint "Semtex" en route to a unanimous decision victory and a spot opposite Georges St. Pierre on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF 12) this September. Anyone think the punishment doesn't fit the crime? Or did Daley get what he deserved?
