Should UFC bring Paul Daley back?

by Jeff Cain | source:

“I figure in all of those fights that I entertained, and I’ve shown a constant development since leaving the UFC. I think that you can see that I’m improving, and I think it’s still going to happen and it would be good to see it back on the biggest stage. You know, see the Semtex that messed up with the Koscheck fight and the Semtex that I am now.”

As they say, the ball is in the UFC’s court, and Daley welcomes dialogue to pave the way for a return to the Octagon.

“I’m open to talking to anybody about the situation. For me, I’ve spoke about it and I’ve always voiced my opinions on the whole UFC situation. I’m maturing as a fighter, as a person, and I’m quite open to sitting down and discussing things with whoever it needs to be discussed with in order to compete within the UFC,” said Daley.

“I have a lot of fans that want to see, not only in the U.K., but all over the world. A lot of people say there’s some interesting match-ups for Semtex to take part in within the UFC. I’m really keen for those fights to happen as well, so we just need somebody in the head office over at the UFC to see what we’re seeing and sign me back up and make the fights happen.”

0&4 refering to his career since 2010. I like Hardy, but the man needs a win

Don't know if I commented on this last night while drinking but if i didn't, HELL NO ! I would rather listen to Wanderlei Silva sing the songs on " Name that tune " to a Blindfolded Matt Hamill than to see Daley back in the UFC. What he did should not be swept under a rug. Too bad you never won TUF. Then you could spit on coaches, knee opponents in the face, and get a job coaching TUF. I am really starting to hate British Fighters. Oh well, there's still Dan the 0 and 4 Hardy.

The UFC could make money off Daley;he has an exciting style win or lose. From a business stand point it makes sense. MMA needs more fighters who are after the finish at all cost.

In short, if Diaz is in and Daley is not then Dana is contradicting himself.Semtex comes to fight, he made a mistake and he'll never do it again, unlike Diaz.

Get him in Dana, too many double standards to not do it.Always brings it, the Daley/Diaz round will go down in history it's a shame that fight did not happen in the UFC.
