Paul Bradley Signs With Strikeforce

Paul BradleyHighly regarded prospect and former Ultimate Fighter cast member Paul Bradley has signed a multi-fight contract with Strikeforce.

FiveOuncesOfPain.com has learned of the news of the signing this evening in a statement issued through Bradley’s management at LionHeart Professional Management & Promotions.

“I am very excited for Paul,” said Chad Dubin, owner of LionHeart Management. “He has worked extremely hard over the last two years to become one of the top contenders at 170 & 185. Paul’s focus for the last 18 months has been to improve his stand up and this has made him a very complete and dangerous guy to fight. Most importantly, Paul will finally get a chance to showcase his talents in an organization that has some of the best fighters in the world. Above everything else, this is what Paul has wanted since he started training MMA over four years ago.”

A former state champion wrestler in high school, and a two-time All-American at 184 pounds in college, Bradley has established himself a force to be reckoned with in both the welterweight and middleweight divisions during his time in MMA. Sporting an impressive record of 11-1, Bradley’s sole defeat in his professional career came in the form of a hard-fought unanimous decision at the hands of fellow blue-chip prospect Mike Pierce.

The arrival of Bradley will add a little more depth in the ever growing Strikeforce 170 and 185 pound divisions.

According to Bradley, the move to Strikeforce is one he welcomes with open arms. He’s eager to show the world that he has arrived, and he’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

“I am very pleased with the opportunity to be fighting in an organization such as Strikeforce,” said Bradley. “They are signing some of the top guys in the world as of late and I feel honored to be a part of this group of people. I look forward to putting on exciting fights for Strikeforce in the future as well as showing the company they made a good decision signing me.”

    No he wasn’t DQ’d.

    He was sent home because he had a case of herpes.

    It was the type of rash that is extremely common with grappling. Anyone familiar with training in a Jiu-Jitsu or wrestling environment is well aware of the hazards of skin infections. Bradley will bring the noise in Strikeforce.

    I felt pretty bad for the guy for having his dreams crushed in the form of a herpe. What did dana white say about him “this kid is one giant herpe walking around” or some thing to that degree. anyway’s i wish him the best of luck
