Paul “Semtex” Daley Officially Released By Strikeforce Upon His Own Request

British welterweight banger, Paul “Semtex” Daley has been released from California based MMA promotion Strikeforce, a move that the fighter himself asked for after being forced to sit out for long periods of time over the span of his contract. Daley lost his last three fights with Strikeforce to Nick Diaz, Tyron Woodley and Kazuo Misaki. He picked up a couple of wins on the local circuit during period over Jordan Radev and Luigi Fioravanti.

Daley, speaking in a statement released today, said:

“I’m happy that Strikeforce has granted my request to be released from their roster as I found it difficult to fight so infrequently. 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.”
