Paul Daley released from Strikeforce contract
According to a statement, Daley (29-12-2 MMA, 2-3 SF), who most recently suffered a March loss to Kazuo Misaki via split decision, is pursuing options with other fight promotions, due in part to his inability to fight frequently with Strikeforce.
“I’m happy that Strikeforce has granted my request to be released from their roster as I found it difficult to fight so infrequently,” the British striker stated. “My whole career I’ve wanted to fight as often as possible as it keeps me in the best form and condition.
“I felt that I put on nothing but entertaining fights while at the organization. The KOs of (Duane) Ludwig and Scott Smith were some great memories for me, as well as the back-and-forth fight of the year I had with Nick Diaz. My manager has already started speaking to some promotions about my future today following the official release papers from Strikeforce, and I’m looking forward to the next part in my journey.”
