Paul Daley to Face Winner of Diaz/Cyborg, But First Headlines BAMMA Show in England

Quote:
Strikeforce welterweight contender Paul Daley is getting ready to head back into action, but this time it will be in his home country of England.

Daley has been approved to headline an upcoming show for the British run MMA organization BAMMA, and is expected to be part of the the main event of their show in February.

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker confirmed the news to MMAWeekly Radio on Wednesday night.

“Paul has requested to have a fight in the UK, and our deal with Paul we have to sign off on it, and we have to have an opponent approval,” Coker stated.

The opponent for Daley has not been finalized, although MMAWeekly.com has confirmed several names are on the list. Coker said much the same, and believes they could have final word about Daley’s opponent in the next few days.

“There’s a couple names and we’re going through that process with him. He wants to stay busy and he wants to fight the winner of (Nick) Diaz and Evangelista (Cyborg), and I think that makes a lot of sense,” said Coker.

Daley’s one-off fight in the UK will keep him busy to kick off 2011, but according to the Strikeforce president if he wins he will be fighting the winner of the upcoming fight between Diaz and Cyborg set to go down on Jan 29.

Coker simply said ‘yes’ when asked if he is the de facto No. 1 contender for the title, and he will be waiting in the wings when the welterweight title fight is settled next Saturday night.

MMAWeekly.com will have more information on Daley’s opponent in BAMMA when it becomes available.

Interesting stuff.
not sure who on the BAMMA roster i'd wanna see him fight. Maybe Gunnar Nelson?! But Daley/Diaz sounds awesome!

I agree! Daley should win against either one.. Diaz or Cyborg. Both are foolish enough to stand with him, for a little to long wich will be there downfall.

And Diaz striking hype will end finally.

I can't wait to see Diaz take Daley's arm or leg home with him to hang up on his wall beside Cyborg's. Daley is incredibly one-dimensional. I acknowledge that he's an awesome striker and he has undeniable power, but.... you need more than that to be a champion. Nick Diaz is a champion. Paul Daley is not and will not be a champion.

I dunno Nick Diaz is one of those fighters who feels he can win where-ever the fight takes place, which would be a big mistake against Daley cos there is no way Diaz goes 25 minutes without Daley landing at least 1 big shot.

If it ends up being Diaz/Daley we'll know within a minute of the fight starting who will take it cos if Nick is smart he shoots straight away and takes advantage of Daley's questionable BJJ. IF not he is getting KTFO.

This is absolutely true and a good point!

but it's Nick Diaz.. a guy who likes to strike before he does anything else. Also his options are limited as well. Because, one question first up is, can he even get this fight to the ground and if so, can he really submit him just like that?

Both I would say , he can't! For the rest what edlavis just said

When's the Bamma card, does anybody know? Soon people are going to realize that Paul Daley belongs to the UFC.

Talent wise he belongs in the UFC. But because of his actions I don't ever think Dana White will let him back in the UFC.

It's funny you said it because i just read the article on mmafighting about Dana White and his never's. Here it is:

Quote:
One of those camera-toting TMZ reporters who follows celebrities around and questions them as they're getting into their limos recently caught up with UFC President Dana White for a 19-second interview that you can watch here.

White briefly confirmed that heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez is doing well in his recovery from surgery, then was asked, "When are we going to see women in the UFC?"

White replied, "never."

Fortunately for those of us who want to see women in the Octagon, White has shown in the past that "never" does not mean what he thinks it means.

White himself has acknowledged that his "nevers" often don't last. Before James Toney stepped into the Octagon, White said, "I said I would never put on a freak show. I'm putting on a freak show."

Other examples of White going back on his "never in the UFC" words: When Karo Parisyan pulled out of his UFC 106 fight, White declared he would never fight in the UFC again. When B.J. Penn spurned the UFC to go fight in Japan in 2004, White told him he'd never fight in the UFC again. When Chuck Liddell was knocked out by Shogun Rua, White said Liddell would never fight in the UFC again.

So what makes me think women in the UFC will some day be added to the list of Dana White "nevers" that weren't really nevers?

The primary reason is financial. Right now, there's not a female actively fighting who could make a big enough difference to the UFC's bottom line for the UFC to sign her. But there was a time, just a couple of years ago, when Gina Carano was becoming popular enough that White and Lorenzo Fertitta contacted her about possibly entering the Octagon. That didn't work out, and right now there's no female draw comparable to Carano in 2009, but there's no reason another female fighter couldn't gain enough popularity outside the UFC to make White want to see her in the UFC.

But there's another reason I think White will change his mind: Giving women a shot in the UFC is simply the right thing to do.

You could say White was motivated solely by the bottom line when he booked fights for Toney, Liddell and Penn, but when White decided to give Parisyan another chance in the UFC, he wasn't doing it for financial reasons: Parisyan wasn't a big draw, and his UFC 123 fight was scheduled for the un-aired preliminary card. White gave Parisyan another chance not because Parisyan mattered to the UFC's bottom line, but simply because he thought Parisyan deserved another chance.

Eventually, I think White will come to feel the same way about women's MMA. He'll see that the best female fighters train as hard as the best male fighters and that they're as dedicated to the sport as male fighters, and he'll figure that the best of the best deserve a shot on the biggest stage.

I don't think it's going to happen this year, probably not next year and maybe not even in five years. But women will fight in the UFC some day.
