Fighters Only has subsequently spoken to Daley’s camp and confirmed the fight is off.

No replacement has been announced. Strikeforce was only informed of the injury overnight and the search for a new opponent is on.

Tyrone Woodley is the only replacement that makes sense. Woodley does not have a fight lined up and at 8-0 is a strong contender for the title recently vacated by Nick Diaz, who has signed with the UFC and will challenge Georges St. Pierre for the UFC welterweight title later this year.

If Strikeforce elect to match Woodley and Daley, there would be a strong chance the vacated welterweight title would be on the line. Woodley is 8-0 with six of those wins under the Strikeforce banner.
