BIRMINGHAM, England – British slugger Paul Daley may have potentially removed himself from UFC president Dana White's "pay no mind" list, but don't expect him to be stepping into the octagon anytime soon.

At Saturday night's UFC 138 post-event press conference in Birmingham, England, UFC president Dana White didn't necessarily uphold his "never again" stance on the banished welterweight but did say Daley wasn't exactly on his radar.

And while making the comment, White also seemed to suggest that the current Strikeforce-Showtime talks, of which he recently took charge, are at least currently ongoing.

It's not if he returns, it's when. Dana knows if fans want to see Daley back he will eventually sign him.

I'd much rather see Maiquel Falcao back in the UFC than Daley. Falcao actually has a chance to have an inpact on his division.

I agree with both of you. Falcao was dropped because of an alleged incident, not something that happened in the octogan

Are you serious?! He beat up a woman! An it wasn't the first time he's been accused of it or found guilty! Dana is right banning him from the UFC. He's a chump.

yikes hit a nerve there. Last I heard it was an accusation. I never heard if there was a case or anything to follow up. If I am right about that aspect, innocent until proven guilty, right? And if im wrong, how about nfl, nba, and mlb as far as criminals being allowed to play? Rothlesburger has multiple sexual accusations and is starting, so unless society totally changes falcao should be able to fight.

He's already served a 2 year sentence for a similar crime in Brazil. I'm all for second chances but if you mess up again why not cut your losses an sever the tie?
I don't know why Rothlesburger is allowed to play but why can't the UFC set the standard for other sports to follow? Just because other sports let morons play why should MMA be the same?
I think Dana made the right move, why should he let the guy back? Daley sucker punched another fighter after the bell so I can sort of see letting him back if he wants but Falcao beat up a woman an has been accused of doing it again. Why let a loser like that make UFC money?

Personally I hate athletes who have poor sportsmanship. Whether Daley gets back into the octagon or not, I really don't care.

Call me crazy but I actually think Daley will be a good draw if the ufc lets him back in. In almost every sport, fans like to have someone they can love and someone they can hate as well. After what he did, you can rest assure many fans want to see him get beaten up.>>>But like I said, I really don't care what-so-ever.

Let him back in and pit him against Kos again. Lord knows Daley would hate that.

Daley doesn't deserve to fight in the UFC. Dana needs to stand by his words.

Pretty much it means "knock out marquardt who I like even less since he's more recent and you'll be back."

I love it! Why is their so much hate towards daley are you kidding me? Most of you said "I don't care if a fighter is gay I just like the fighter" what the heck is the difference here? Diaz and co. jumped mayhem and a lot of you still like him.

Pretty hypocritical if you ask me. I like daley he's an exciting fighter and made the ufc ww division so much more exciting. And seriously who in their right mind would not pay good money for daley/diaz or daley/kampman 2?

What in the world is the connection between being gay and sucker punching your opponent after a fight?

The difference between Daley's incident, and Diaz, is that Miller incited the attack. I don't agree with the beatdown, but Daley's incident was completely uncalled for and unprovoked.
