Paul DaleyRecent UFC welterweight castoff Paul “Semtex” Daley (24–9–2) will reportedly sign a six-fight deal with the Strikeforce promotion with the next day or two.

The news was first broke by MiddleEasy.com who first reported that the fighter had already signed with Strikeforce and has his first opponent.

Just hours ago, Paul Daley signed a six-fight Strikeforce contract. He will still fight at Shark Fights 13 which will go down September 11th at the Civic Center Coliseum in Amarillo, Texas (sort of a strange date to have an MMA event). His first opponent will be Evangelista Cyborg which denotes that he will still be competing at welterweight.

USA TODAY’s Sergio Non say’s not so fast, posting a message on Twitter noting that he spoke to Strikeforce’s Mike Afromowitz who said that Daley isn’t signed just yet. Afromowitz is the director of communications for the Strikeforce promotion.

Just got off phone with Strikeforce’s Afromowitz, who says Daley isn’t signed yet, though the company expects it Monday or Tuesday.

Daley was released by the UFC after his co-main event bout with Josh Koscheck at UFC 113 in Montreal. He punched Koscheck in the head well after the bell sounded to end the third round. The British striker then went on to defeat Daniel Acacio via submission (elbow) last month at the Impact FC 2 – The Uprising: Sydney show in Australia. He is currentlyl scheduled to fight for the Shark Fights promotion on September 11th at their Shark Fights 13 event against an as-of-yet to be named opponent.
