Paul Daley Set To Make Promotional Debut at Strikeforce: St. Louis

According to Strikeforce, Paul “Semtex” Daley will make his promotional debut fighting Scott Smith at the December 4 event, which airs live from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis on Showtime.

The evening’s main event is a light heavyweight showdown between two of the promotion’s biggest stars - Dan Henderson and Renato “Babalu” Sobral.

Scott Smith was scheduled to make his welterweight debut, but will now serve as the one man welcoming committee for Paul Daley to the organization. This is match up should provide some fireworks to St. Louis that evening with both fighters branded as strikers.

Daley recently signed with Strikeforce after stringing together consecutive wins following his release from the UFC after a controversial post-fight sucker punch. That ill-considered swipe at Josh Koscheck also cost him a title shot and a coaching gig on the current season of The Ultimate Fighter.

His opponent, Scott Smith, is coming off a TKO loss in a rematch with former Strikeforce champ Cung Le.

    Seems like this new writer knows what he’s talking about, and it sounds to me like he knows and loves the sport of mma. “Good Luck” to you Ray.

    Damn, Strikeforce just loves hiring that TBA guy. I keep trying to find his record cause he always seems to be in like 3 of 4 of these Strikeforce shows. I wonder if he gets good enough to join the UFC would they do GSP vs. TBA?

    Smith/Daley does sound like fun though.

    Im guessing Scott Smith is dropping down to WW or Semtex is moving up to MW which I doubt.

    No matter what that should be a good fight.
