Cyborg Santos out of clash with Paul Daley

Paul Daley's management team have informed ESPN that the welterweight is searching for a new opponent after Evangelista Cyborg Santos was ruled out of their July 30 clash.

Daley and Santos were heading for a potentially explosive 170lb war, as the co-main event to Dan Henderson's much anticipated encounter with Fedor Emelianenko.

The clash could even have turned out to be for the vacant Strikeforce welterweight title, after Nick Diaz switched to the UFC to fight Georges St-Pierre. Daley and Santos had been the most recent men to challenge Diaz for his throne.

However, Santos has pulled out of the bout due to injury, and ESPN understands Strikeforce is currently in the process of finding a replacement opponent for Daley.

Tyron Woodley would be the name to spring to most lips, after he watched the Diaz v Daley fight wearing a t-shirt saying "I got next". However, any fighter accepting the bout would be left with little over a month to prepare.
Gutted.. Was really looking forward to that fight. Who steps up to the plate?

UFC 52-30-3 Strikeforce 10-4

There goes Cyborg's chances of winning a potentially epic battle. Striker vs striker however Cyborg can submit em.

One of the best fights was against Melvin Manhoef...

Sorry for bumping here, but who do you reckon would have won this fight?

Although I'm pretty sold on Daley as a great striker, I'm thinking that Cyborg would've given Daley a run for his money. I would've bet on Daley, but I'm also thinking that Cyborg could take a decision.

I know this fight going to a decision might sound crazy, but I think they are pretty decent chinned both of them, with lots of heart. Things like that goes a long way in this sport. And with the judges we have today, anyone of them could take the cake.
