Paul Daley today came in five pounds heavy for his co-headliner fight with Jordan Radev at BAMMA 7, but the fight will go on.

The onetime Strikeforce welterweight title challenger weighed in at 176 pounds and declined to cut any more weight. Radev weighed in at 171 and after initial negotiations decided to take the fight in spite of Daley's miss.

Daley was handed over a percentage of his purse for the infraction – his sixth in two-plus years – though his manager, Wad Alameddine, declined to disclose the amount docked.

Daley does look a whole weight class larger.

Yea, that's crap. 6 times in 2 years! That's just plain out disrespectful. I actually like to watch Semtex fight, but I don't like this. I hope Radev knocks him out.

Should go bye Paul "Semi" Daley instead of Semtex. You think he would get tired of getting his pay docked. He must have some pretty good sponsor deals to fill in for the loss from his fight purse.

I know his opponents probably don't mind the extra money from him, but enough is enough already.

If he's meant to be at ww then he should come in at 170, no more. Professional means more then demeanor

There's an interview with Liam Fisher of BAMMA HERE and he discusses how upset everyone from Jordan Radev, BAMMA and Nate MArquardt are over this whole situation.

So much so that Nate is retiscent of fighting him for the BAMMA WW title in December.

Way to convince Dana you've changed into a professional

I have absolutely no respect for this guy at all. I didn't really think I could possibly lose any more respect for him after he tried to sucker punch someone who dominated him completely, but somehow I have. If my respect were measured on a scale of 1 to 10 it is probably at -20 or something like that.

Glad you're in BAMMA, because you don't belong in an organization like the UFC or Strikeforce.

I think he's still under contract with SF.
