This is a response from a recent interview Dana had with Ariel where Dana stated that Paul didn't want to be in the UFC.

Maybe he should show some remorse publicly before Dana gives him a shot again

He did. He issued a public apology after the Koscheck fight.

The way Dana said it I think he was implying that Daley has shown he doesn't want to fight for the UFC through his words and actions. Not necessarily that he actually voiced a disinterest in fighting there.

The UFC can seriously use more exciting fighters and Semtex is definitely one. I hope he gets back to the UFC.

No pretty sure Daley actually said he didn't want to fight for the UFC a bit after the Koschek situation. Phone Post

I doubt the UFC will sign him again and it's a shame cause he is a really exciting fighter that the ufc could put on that next uk card so the visa issue wouldn't be a problem at this point.Always wanted to see him fight pitbull that would of been a fucking war. Phone Post 3.0

I don't think Daley will ever fight for the title but I like watching the dude fight and wouldn't mind seeing him in the UFC if he can get his mind right. Phone Post 3.0

I think dana said that cause he knows paul wants to be back and wants to see if he is willing to admit his mistakes and apologize (even though he already did)


Dana will eventually sign him. He never got to make money off daley yet. Out of all his ufc fights, not one was in uk. Put him on a uk card and make some money and make both parties happy.

He's a good and exciting fighter but I'm not sure he deserves to be back in the big show.

his actions against kos certainly weren't as bad as what margarito did in boxing. So I won't hold it against him too much. Blaf seemed more upset with Marquardt than with Semtex. Phone Post 3.0

In his bellator promo he said he didnt regret it and koshchek deserved it. Phone Post

Madrugadao - Seems to me the real problem with Daley isn't what happened with Koschek, it was how he dealt with Dana after.

Dana likes fighters to kiss his ass or at least show him a certain level of respect but Daley isn't really about that (not that he is particularly disrespectful).

If Daley had said, 'sorry boss, I just lost it for a moment, it won't happen again' etc etc, he probably would have just got a ban (just long enough to last until he was next ready to fight).

Anyway, who really misses him?
Do we really need a guy that always puts on exciting fights and always goes for the kill, rather than laying on top of the other guy for 15 minutes?

I for one am tired of all these kill or be killed, stand and bang guys. I would far rather watch a Greg Jackson fighter game planning his way to a decision. It's far more exciting...

I was about to go off on you before i noticed the sarcasm lol

He's has issues making weight and he sucker punched Koscheck after their fight. He's not a professional and I would think that's why he wouldn't be wanted back in the UFC.

He should try going through WSOF, make weight a few times and beat some decent opponents and then I think he would have more of a chance. Phone Post 3.0

He always comes to fight and he's better than quite a lot of WW still. PEople forget that Koscheck fight was a #1 contender fight os he was right up there when the incident happened
