Paul “Semtex” Daley vs. Jorge Masvidal at Shark Fights 13 in Amarillo, Texas

Former UFC welterweight, Paul “Semtex” Daley will face Jorge Masvidal at Shark Fights 13 at the Civic Center Coliseum in Amarillo, Texas on September 11th, 2010.

Shark Fights President, Brent Medley said:

“Choosing the right opponent to face a high-level contender like Daley was not easy. Numerous A-list fighters were under consideration. When we heard that Jorge Masvidal wanted to return to the welterweight division after several grueling weight cuts from 185 pounds to 155 pounds, he became our clear choice. We immediately approached Masvidal about the bout and he did not hesitate to step up to the challenge.”

Daley was last seen claiming a verbal submission win over Daniel Acacio at Impact FC 2 in Sydney, Australia last month, before that he fired from the UFC after punching Josh Koscheck after the fight was over at UFC 113.

Masvidal formely competed in the Bellator FC and holds notable wins over the likes of Joe Lauzon, Ryan Schultz and Yves Edwards.
