Paul Daley vs. Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos at Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson on July 30th

The last two fighters to face Nick Diaz in Strikeforce will now face each other on July 30th in Chicago headlined by the heavyweight super fight between Fedor Emelianenko and Dan Henderson. Paul “Semtex” Daley will face Evangelista ‘Cyborg’ Santos on the upcoming Fedor vs. Henderson card set to go down at the Sears Center in Chicago.

Daley returns to action following one of the most action packed single rounds in MMA history with Nick Diaz back in April. Before being finished by the champion, Daley dropped Diaz midway through the first round and almost finished him, but he survived to battle back and finish the Brit with just seconds remaining.

Santos hasn’t fought since he lost to Diaz by armbar in January this year. Prior to that, Santos knocked out former Dream welterweight champion Marius Zaromskis in his welterweight debut. He was originally scheduled to face Team Quest fighter Tarec Saffiedine, but it appears Strikeforce wanted to go in a difference direction.

Currently, the Strikeforce welterweight title remains up for grabs after Diaz vacated the belt to face UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. While no announcement has been made you can be assured that this fight has title implications written all over it!
