Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley has won three consecutive MMA bouts, including a victory over Martin Kampmann in his UFC debut back in September of 2009. He was later scheduled to take on Carlos Condit as part of the UFC 108 main fight card, but Condit was forced to cancel their bout due to a hand injury he sustained during a training session. Here’s a snip of what Daley had to say prior to their fight:
“Step up!! You pussy…UFC 108 … You know me, I’d accept any fight. I just wanna fight. (Carlos) Condit is a big pussy IMO, i have inside information on that dude….it’s all good as long as i fight. Koshcheck…is a tough motherfucker, but i accept the challange. Hazellet has sick subs, and is dangerous, but i accept that fight too. Any top level figher in 170lbs with a winning record. Joe make it happen.”
With Condit sidelined for the upcoming UFC 108 card, the submission specialist has agreed to step in as a late replacement to fight Paul Daley on January 2nd, 2010. UFC 108 will headline a light heavyweight match-up between Rashad ‘Sugar’ Evans and black belt Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu artist Thiago Silva. The event takes place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
