Paul Daley Cut From the UFC by Dana White (Video)

Paul “Semtex” Daley has been cut from the UFC, after sending a well-deserved left hook towards Josh Koshcheck’s face moments after the final bell. After the Strikeforce brawl, Dana White is obviously spinning this by making Daley an “example”.

Should Daley have thrown that punch?
No BUT, it’s not a big deal.

  • This is a fighting sport
  • If you watch the replay, the big hook barely clipped Koscheck
  • Koscheck faked getting an illegal knee to the head in the first round. It’s not sportsmanlike. It interrupts the fight
  • Koscheck avoided Daley’s hands at all costs during the fight, despite the smack talking

“Daley is cut. He is gone as of now. What the fuck was he thinking in there ? Was he out of his mind ? I said to him, you’re a good fighter, why would you do something like that ? He told me he didn’t hear the bell. He had all the potential to go on and be one of the great fighters in this division. ”

“He will not fight in the UFC again. He’s done. If he does fight again in the UFC it will not be for another 100 years. As an organisation we are very down to earth, people make mistakes, bad things  happen, but don’t ever, ever deliberately hit a guy after the bell. Yes, he was frustrated…but this is a sport not a streetfight, and they are athletes, not thugs, and we have to send a clear message.”

- Dana White, UFC President

Spike TV Will Air UFC 103 Preliminary Fights Free September 19

“Providing an action-packed UFC pay-per-view, live and commercial free to our viewers on both coasts, further illustrates Spike TV and the UFC’s commitment to its fans,” Spike TV president Kevin Kay said to UFC.com.

The undercard for UFC 103 currently features 8 bouts including

  • Efrain Escudero vs. Cole Miller
  • Drew McFedries vs. Tomasz Drwal
  • Rom Emerson vs. Rafael Dos Anjos
  • Vladimir Matyushenko vs. Igor Pokrajac
  • Eliot Marshall vs. Jason Brilz
  • Dan Lauzon vs. Rafaello Oliveira
  • Paul Daley vs. Brian Foster
  • Thiago Tavares vs. Jim Miller

No reasoning for the decision to air the free fights was given from the UFC or Spike TV. Many people believe it’s because the event will be going head-to-head with a boxing bout between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Juan Manuel Marquez. But I think that answers the question quite clearly. Do I have to remind you about the free airing of UFC 100 during Strikeforce’s Carano VS. Cyborg. Dana White and the UFC look as if they are going for the jugular with every competing event.

UFC 103: Franklin vs. Belfort will be headlined by a bout featuring former UFC middleweight champion Rich “Ace” Franklin taking on former UFC heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort at 195-pound catchweight. The event is scheduled for September 19 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
