MiddleEasy.com is at it again, reporting on Sunday morning that Paul Daley has signed a six-fight deal with Strikeforce and will face Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos in his first bout with the American promotion.
Since getting excommunicated from the UFC for punching Josh Koscheck after the bell at UFC 113 in May, Daley appeared on the inaugural pay-pay-view of the Australia-based Impact FC promotion in July – notching a win over Daniel Acacio — and had been rumored to be in contract talks with Bellator as well as slated to fight in the European United Glory welterweight tournament this fall.
No date is yet known for Daley’s Strikeforce debut. Middle Easy cites an anonymous but “very reliable” source with the news.
