Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley Returns at BAMMA 7, Opponent Still To Be Determined

Quote:
Former UFC and current Strikeforce welterweight Paul Daley gets back in action on Sept 10 as he gets to return home to England for his next fight at BAMMA 7.

Daley made the announcement via his Facebook page on Saturday after being reported by The Fight Lounge.

“People of Nottingham, My next fight BAMMA 7, Sept 10th in Birmingham. The fight was on, off, on, off…and now it’s on!” Daley wrote.

Daley has been long rumored for the BAMMA card, but until this weekend, nothing had been settled.

The British slugger returns home and hopes to find some of the same success the last time he competed there. When Daley fought at BAMMA 5 he knocked out Yuya Shirai in less than two minutes.

Since that time, Daley has suffered back-to-back losses while fighting for Strikeforce. A back and forth fight with former welterweight champion Nick Diaz resulted in a TKO loss, and then he fell victim to former Missouri wrestler Tyron Woodley in July.

Daley will try to erase the memories of both of those occasions when he gets back in the BAMMA cage in September.

As far as opponents go, sources have indicated to MMAWeekly.com that a deal should be finalized within the coming days for who Daley will face at BAMMA 7.

Good to see him getting back in there so quickly. Thought he did ok against Woodley his defensive wrestling has definitely come on a bit since he was embarrassed by Koscheck.

I'm guessing it'll be Villasenor, as his fight with Che Mills for this show got scratched when the UFC signed Mills. Would make sense anyway...

Accoding to AddictedMMA on Twitter, Daley will face Jordan Radev, you may remember him having a couple of fights in the UFC a few years ago.

British bomber Paul Daley will get a chance to once again test out his ever-improving takedown defense in a few weeks when he meets former Olympic wrestler Jordan Radev in the main event at BAMMA 7 in Birmingham, England.

Strikeforce welterweight Paul Daley certainly likes to keep busy. Just a day after signing to fight Jordan Radev at BAMMA 7, the British slugger has signed on to face American Top Team fighter Luigi Fioravanti in the main event of Ringside 12 in Montreal.
So he has 2 fights scheduled now. What's up with Daley and these wrestlers, Radev is a former olympian and Daley knows his TDD isn't much.

I'd say it much more of an issue of working off his back and getting to his feet. Recently his TDD defense has looked good its just a matter of if he gets taken down he will pretty much lose the round.

He should beat Villasenoir easily in the 2nd one, but Radev is a tough fight.... he's a good wrestler who's won 12 of 13 fights post-ufc, including wins over Shlemenko, Perak and Shirai. I do think he'll win as his takedown defence looked greatly improved gaainst Woodley, but i think it'll be a relatively close decision.

I wonder if this fight is going to be for the BAMMA welterweight title again. It would've been Daley's if he'd made weight the last time. If he actually makes it this time he will have a place to go after Strikeforce closes its doors.

Yeah, that was sweet. Too bad he didn't know how to finish it. That would easily have been the biggest "WTF just happened?!" moment since Fedor/Werdum.
