Paul Daley Fighting On Fedor v Hendo Card

Apologies for the poor thread but am currently posting via my phone.

Paul Daley has just put on his Facebook page that he is fighting on the Fedor v Hendo card but won't say who he is fighting. I'd imagine it would be Tyron Woodley.

I hope Cyborg that seems like a fun fight were Daley can get a highlight reel knock out. Daley is an asshat but seeing him taken down and pummeled does little for me and a fight with Woodley doesn't seem like it would be competitive to me.

If SF wants to keep Daley around, they feed him a brawler (Evangelista).

If Dana influences things and they want to put another L on Daley's record, they'll throw him a Tyron "The Human Blanket" Woodley so he can cuddle with Daley and take a snoozefest decision... but I'd be rooting for Daley to land a flash KO ;p

Daley vs Santos would be such an exciting fight.

Makes a lot of sense: both exciting, both coming after a loss against Diaz.

Great idea.

BELIEVE!

It wouldnt suprise me at all if the Zuffa top-brass had an evil agenda to bury Daley with a couple of defeats against strong grapplers then release him into the MMA wilderness.

It's not as if he personally insulted Dana or the Fertitas, so why would they want to blackball him. He made a mistake and was punished rather harshly for it. I wouldn't be surprised to see Daley stick around SF and maybe even prove himself worthy of a return to the UFC.

Santos was supposed to fight against Tarec Saffiedine on that card, but is was canceled for unknown reasons. I'm thinking it's Daley v Santos.

On a side note, I'm not sure why Cyborg would deserve it more than Woodley. He isn't very good.

EDIT: Here is a source to validate my claim.

Cyborg is horrible and Woodley likely does deserve a high profile fight more but for me its a matter of Daley having a huge glaring hole in his game and there being no reason to consistently expose it over and over. Its clear to me that Daley will never be top 5. He will never be champ and instead of clogging up the ladder he should just be fighing fun fights since he is exciting to watch. Cyborg/Daley equals fireworks. Woodley/Daley is the exact opposite of that.

Without wanting to get into it all over again, Daley completely deserved to be cut. He will never, ever fight in the UFC again. Even if he strings a couple of wins together in Strikeforce, eventually it will be swallowed up by the UFC and Daley will not be invited to return. Had he beat Diaz there would of been the SLIGHTEST argument for a cross over fight, but i still sincerely doubt it would of happened.

Its like Josh Barnett, unless he wins the Grand Prix there is no way he is returning.

I know Dana often times speaks without thinking but he said Daley would never fight in the UFC again, and i believe him on this one.

Cyborg/Daley should be a pretty entertaining fight. I feel for those guys though, now that Diaz has vacated the title to go fight GSP, winning it wont mean a whole lot. Gotta be a tough pill to swallow knowing that you couldnt beat the champion, you had to wait until he gave up the belt (not that this fight is going to be for the title or anything).
