Paul Daley has finally signed on to fight for Strikeforce, according to Ariel Helwani at MMAFighting.com.
Daley’s signing comes just days after Jorge Masvidal’s signing was confirmed. Daley defeated Masvidal last weekend at Shark Fights 13 in Amarillo, Texas in his second fight since being released from the UFC.
The now infamous sucker punch came at UFC 113 in May in Montreal, where Josh Koscheck kept him on his back through three rounds to win a unanimous decision. When the final bell sounded, Daley chased after Koscheck and threw a final punch before the referee could stop him.
With that, UFC President Dana White said Daley would never again fight in the UFC, and the once very promising career for Daley in the UFC was over.
Daley’s contract is a multi-fight deal, though his debut has not yet been set. Daley said last week he’d like to fight Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Nick Diaz, and that fight could happen should Diaz get past K.J. Noons on October 9.
