Strikeforce has released former welterweight title challenger Paul Daley.

Wad Alameddine of Fight Management today confirmed the news via press release.

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."

Prior to the Misaki loss, the 29-year-old Daley had posted back-to-back decision wins over Jordan Radev and Luigi Fioravanti in outside promotions. However, he went winless in his final three Strikeforce appearances, including a title loss to welterweight champ Diaz in early 2011.

Alameddine insists the split was amicable.

"I am personally disappointed to see Paul leave Strikeforce," he stated. "He's without question one of the most charismatic personalities and talented MMA athletes to come out of the U.K. We have parted ways with Strikeforce on good terms."

Over three stints with the promotion, Daley went 2-3 in Strikeforce.

Didn't his Strikeforce contract allow him to take fights elsewhere?

Paul Daley will never be the champ, but he is very entertaining against guys who let him be, so sure, I'd watch him in the UFC.

He came to fight every single time

I will always pay to watch a Daley fight, there are many fighters with much better records I'm not willing to pay to watch

The loss to Diaz must be one of the most exciting single round fights ever.

Paul is good to watch.

Lol@Daley's delusional version of getting cut. Daley's nuthuggers are in a competition with him to see who can be more out of touch with reality. Phone Post

Daley undoubtedly has flaws in his attitude but he's one hell of an exciting fighter.

He's a big draw for any organisation. Phone Post

If babalu has a lifetime ban, Daley should have one too. What he did was despicable and he has issues making weight. Bellator will pick him up. Phone Post

 Why would he be surprised when he requested to be released from his SF contract?

I suppose Nick Diaz should have a lifetime ban from any Zuffa organisation as he had 2 brawls after the bell then.

How much would you pay to see him fight? Against who?

He can add to an Undercard but no way can he be sold as the star at this point. He is many wins away from headlining. Phone Post
