Paul Daley's management team have informed ESPN that the welterweight is searching for a new opponent after Evangelista Cyborg Santos was ruled out of their July 30 clash.

Daley and Santos were heading for a potentially explosive 170lb war, as the co-main event to Dan Henderson's much anticipated encounter with Fedor Emelianenko.

The clash could even have turned out to be for the vacant Strikeforce welterweight title, after Nick Diaz switched to the UFC to fight Georges St-Pierre. Daley and Santos had been the most recent men to challenge Diaz for his throne.

However, Santos has pulled out of the bout due to injury, and ESPN understands Strikeforce is currently in the process of finding a replacement opponent for Daley.

Woodley would be cool. Siyar Bahadurzada would be even better.
