Now it's Paul Daley vs Tyron Woodley
Taking it up a notch at the Fedor vs Hendo show!


Another big addition has been made to next month's "Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson" event.

Sources close to the show today told that a welterweight bout between Tyron Woodley (8-0 MMA, 6-0 SF) and Paul Daley (27-10-2 MMA, 2-1 SF) is in the process of being finalized for the card.

It's not clear if Nick Diaz's recently vacated welterweight title will be on the line.

"Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson" takes place July 30 at Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Ill. The main card, including a Fedor Emelianenko vs. Dan Henderson heavyweight headliner, airs live on Showtime.

Daley initially was slated to fight Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos on the card, but the Brazilian recently bowed out due to a shoulder injury.

Daley fights for the first time since an April title loss to Diaz. Prior to the TKO defeat, the knockout artist had won eight of nine fights, and the lone loss came to perennial contender Josh Koscheck at UFC 113. UFC officials ultimately released the British fighter after the fight because of a post-bout suckerpunch.

Daley, long ranked among the world's top 170-pounders, now meets the fast-rising Woodley, who was earmarked for a shot at Diaz before he opted to vacate the title and challenge UFC champ Georges St-Pierre in October. Woodley, a former standout wrestler at the University of Missouri, joined Strikeforce after just two wins and since has pushed his record to 8-0. His recent victories have come over notables such as Rudy Bears, Nathan Coy, Andre Galvao and Tarec Saffiedine.

Looks like I get my wish after all. :)

THIS is what Woodley needs. A one dimensional, highly overrated borderline top 10 guy to break through on a major card.

Woodley is going to make an example out of Daley.

Man I am DEFINITELY taking Woodley here. This is good. I remember seeing videos of his first fight in SF and I was impressed. Glad to see that he is getting a huge shot like this.

Why is Daley accepting this fight? It makes no sense whatsoever.

If he wins he beat the one guy who's closest to the title.
