A long-rumored deal between Paul Daley and Strikeforce has officially been finalized.

MMA Fighting has confirmed with Strikeforce director of communications Mike Afromowitz that the former UFC and EliteXC welterweight contender has signed a multi-fight contract with the organization.

The organization has yet to decided when the British fighter will make his Strikeforce debut.

It was only a matter of time. I can't say I'm unhappy with this, I'd love to see a fight between him and Marius Zaromskis.

YESSSSSSSSSS

Daley vs Tyrone woodley
VS Riggs
than a title shot
vs Nick Diaz
I bet they give him strikers 2 fight only. i think Diaz would try to stand with Daley, until he gets hit hard. Diaz has a great chin, but too many shots from Daley will put anyone down imo

I'd love to see that fight for the sole fact I don't think Diaz could take Daley down and he would get humiliated on the feet. I think a fight with Tyron Woodley would be awesome, he needs to be fighting better opponents.

Thats the likely scenario with strikeforce. one big glaring problem, Daley cant win a belt when he cant make weight.

Well this took a bit longer than I expected. I thought for sure that as soon as the UFC let him go, StrikeForce would sign him. He has a lot of good match-ups there. WE'll see if he can get his weight cutting issues solved. Maybe even a debut fight at 185 against Scott Smith!!?? Would be a great match-up for Daley and probably a win?

I didn't even think about Noons, as much as I despise him and think he is overrated no denying his exciting fights.
