Cage Rage welterweight champion Paul Daley has been pulled from a scheduled fight on March 29 on the undercard of the EliteXC and Strikeforce co-promoted show that will feature Frank Shamrock defending his Strikeforce middleweight title against Cung Le in the main event.

Daley’s next fight is now scheduled for May 10 at Cage Rage 26 at the NEC Arena in Birmingham, England where he will defend his Cage Rage welterweight title against an unnamed opponent. The news comes according to a report by Stash Capar of The Fight Network.

Unless Daley recants previous statements made on a message forum, the bout could be his last as a mixed martial artist.

    His British boss is probably a racist; no wonder he keeps his reasons on the down low, but it seems pretty obvious that Daley just wants out of Cage Rage. I guess the only way to do that is to leave pro elite as well. I’m sure he’ll sign with the WEC, UFC, Strikeforce or Golden Boy when he fulfills his contract. He’s probably already got something in the works.

    well, #2..
    he said he was going to leave fighting all together.. not just leave cage rage..

    he said maybe, when it feels right, he’ll make a return, but otherwise, he feels he has to retire.. if i’m correct..

    sooo, i wouldn’t mind seeing him join some of those other org.’s.. i just don’t think it will happen ANY TIME SOON..
