Paul Daley Taking His Talents To Bellator

Former UFC and Strikeforce fighter Paul Daley has signed a contract to compete for Bellator, according to a report by MMA Fighting’s Mike Chiappetta.

Daley (29-12-2) will make his debut for the promotion on July 20 at Bellator 72. An opponent has yet to be named for “Semtex.”

“I’ve been a fan of Bellator for a long while,” said Daley, in a statement. “When this chance came up, I was absolutely ready to make a long-term commitment to Bellator. I have my sights set on winning the tournament and winning that Bellator title.”

Daley asked for his release from Strikeforce so that he could compete more often. He was released from the UFC after landing a late punch after the bell to Josh Koscheck.
