Paul Daley signs 6-fight contract with Strikeforce


The inevitable has come to fruition.

Paul Daley has singed on to fight for Scott Coker and boys at Strikeforce. "Semtex" has agreed to a six-fight deal according to MMA Weekly, as first reported by Middle Easy.

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.

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

Daley was seen in action at Impact FC 2: 'The Uprising' earlier this month as he finished Daniel Acacio in the third round with a forehead-splitting elbow. Paul recently signed on to compete at the upcoming Shark Fights 13 event, and though he still does not have an opponent lined up for that card, he will indeed fight at the September 11 show.

An opponent has yet to be named for "Semtex's" promotional debut with the San Jose-base organization as well, 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 in Strikeforce?
