Underrated/Unknown Fighters #2

Posted 12-05-2007 at 01:24 AM by

Well I'm only giving you guys 1 fighter today since this guy is so underrated he deserves his own post.
Paul Daley[/U][/B]

A big name in England he hasn't gotten much attention in the states which is a shame. The guy holds wins over UFC vets Jess Liuden, Dave Strasser, and Duane "Bang" Ludwig. And English stars Xavier Foupa Pokam, Sol Gilbert, and Mark Weir.

He has had trouble with Chute Boxe fighters since 2 of his last 3 losses are to Chute Boxe guys. However Jean Silva and Luiz Azeredo are no pushovers. His other loss is to Kitaoka who has beaten Pellgrino, Condit, and other top fighters.

Paul Daley has some real strong stand up and very good GnP. His submission game is above average and he could defiantly put up a fight against anyone in the Pro Elite orgs WW division including Shields.

Daley often starts slow but he can pick it up quickly and has some real dangerous punches, kicks, and knees.

    I never heard of him before his fight with Duane Ludwig though, but hes got talent. You think he's ready for the UFC even at the bottom level?

    I saw his fight with Ludwig. I am not sure why he hasnt got any attention, probably just bad promoting. He will have to get attention eventually.

    GMW I think Daley isn't far behind Marcus Davis in talent level. He could defiantly compete in the UFC. Now he can't beat guys like GSP, Hughes, Fitch and the other big time guys.

    Kamikaze Daley really isn't well known in the states. He is basically known for beating Bang and his HL video.

    The Bang win was really nice, and he's getting better. I don't know about the UFC, but the WEC would be a nice fit for Daley.

    I would defiantly like to see Daley vs Condit. But for now I think Paul Daley should start fighting on Elite XC cards. After one or two wins I think he should get Shields. I mean the guy is some what shaky since sometimes he looks like a top 10 WW and at others he looks like trash but he always pushes the pace and is fun to watch.

    Man, how did I miss this blog. Great mention bbjd7!

    Daley has some of the scariest striking Ive seen in a while, every shot is percise and looks like it really hurts. He rarely gives you a chance to strike back. Hes still improving his ground game. And the reason why Azeredo is because I think he immobilized him from the beginning and prevented him from throwing those WILD attacks that just stunn a fighter. He should be a force in the WEC or EXC.

    But hes stated he doesnt want to fight in the UFC because of how they treat their fighters.
