Paul Daley Makes Stunning Decision Regarding Next Fight

Paul Daley has caught many off guard with his recent announcement.

Daley was set to compete on October 1 in Bellator’s debut on CBS Sports Network. He was going to share the cage with Derek Anderson in the main event of Bellator 247 in Milan, Italy. That plan fell apart during the weigh-ins.

“Semtex” had a poor weight cut and it was reported that he was hospitalized as a result. Kate Jackson vs. Denise Kielholtz was promoted to the main event.

Daley took to his Instagram account to reveal that his next bout will be his last.

“Forever a samurai. But soon we will put the blade to rest. After discussions and careful consideration with my family, it has been decided that my next fight Bellator will be my last. To be fought at a catchweight of 175lbs. Opponent and location to be confirmed. Health before Wealth, and NEVER COMPROMISE YOURSELF.”

Daley has a pro MMA record of 42-17-2. In 33 of his wins, Daley has scored a knockout or TKO. While he never won a major world championship during his time with the UFC, Bellator, and Strikeforce, he is likely to be remembered for his exciting fighting style. In one of the all-time great rounds in MMA history, Daley was stopped by Nick Diaz in a Strikeforce Welterweight Title fight back on April 9, 2011.
