Paul Daley lobbying for second shot in the UFC

Paul Daley lobbying for second shot in the UFC

Welterweight Paul Daley may be one of the division’s most exciting fighters and has won his last four fights by way of TKO but fans shouldn’t expect to see him back in the Octagon anytime soon if ever again. Daley was recently released by Bellator relating to legal issues the cement-fisted slugger is dealing with in England making it difficult for “Semtex” to travel overseas.

Now a free agent without any strings attached, Daley took to Facebook where he wrote, “Given the opportunity Dana, I would be right back in there, please just send me that contract.”

Daley, referring to UFC President Dana White in his message, fought three times under the organization’s banner including a knockout of Martin Kampmann. However, his time spent there will undoubtedly be remembered for a sucker-punch he threw after a frustrating loss to Josh Koscheck ultimately earning him his release.

White addressed the possibility of Daley making a return over the weekend while speaking to media at UFC on FOX 8 where he told MMAJunkie, “I thought he hated this place. I don’t know, man. I don’t think so.”

The 30-year old Daley is 33-12-2 in his career with 24 strike-based stoppages. He has emerged with his hand raised in six of his last seven scraps.

    I could just see every fight interview if he did come back, his opponents would make comments saying they wonder if he will punch them after the fight because that’s the only way they will touch him

    Personally idc if he goes back to the UFC or not. BUT if he does, I think a Daley/Robbie Lawler matchup would be pretty fun.

    @ darth
    War Machine isn’t in prison anymore unless I missed something over the past few weeks. Then again with that dude who knows…lol. Now Joe Son….Wow …I’m shocked he hasn’t been taken out in prison yet. I bet he sure misses getting punched in the balls by Keith Hackney right about now. Ok I’m done with this subject….Next article.
