It is being reported that Paul Daley has signed with K-1 Global, where he will compete in the 80kg division.

After weeks of cryptic messages on his Facebook fanpage, Paul Daley appears to have signed with K-1 Global, where he will compete in their 80kg weight division.

The news was first reported by liverkick.com.

"Semtex" will make his debut at the K-1 World MAX Finals in July. The event, which takes place in Thailand, is headlined by a tournament final between two-time K-1 World MAX Champion Buakaw Banchamek and Enriko Kehl.

Daley is better known as an MMA fighter who amassed a 34-14-2 record over 11 years, including a stint in the UFC's welterweight division. Daley also holds a 17-3 kickboxing record, including three TKO wins so far in 2014. He recently fought on the Legend 3: Pour Homme fight card in Milan, Italy, where he TKOed Alexander Surzhko in the third round.

It is interesting to note that Daley had recently mentioned that he is still interested in returning to the UFC, but does not mind simply "collecting nice belts."

"A return to the UFC would be great, but generally I just want to fight the best people I can, and collect nice belts."

The Briton's next kickboxing match is scheduled to take place on April 25th, where he will meet Miran Fabjan at FFC12 in Slovakia.

Well, I am excited for K-1 Max Final, especially because it is in Thailand and features Buakaw, but with that said

good for him. he can stand and bang with no wrestlers to avoid and a more easily reachable 176 lb limit. almost impossible to miss that.

Just looking for some nice pay checks and kickboxing experience imo, going to Glory would mean jumping right in at the deep end with regards to kickboxing. Probably the smartest move for him if he plans to stick around.

I'd imagine he talked to Glory and got a better deal from K-1 Phone Post 3.0

That is a good pick-up by K-1.  Glory has been signing up everyone. K-1 is nowhere near what they use to be, but I do believe they have a good plan in place.

I didn't know k-1 was still in operation. I'm surprised he didn't go to glory especially since they got a UK show coming up soon and Daley has a solid fan base k-1 must of given him a really good contract. Phone Post 3.0

He should have signed with Glory, didn't know K-1 was still alive. It was awesome back in the day. Will be interesting to see him up against some of the top people in K-1 anyways.
