(mmafighting.com)
Paul Daley apologized on Sunday for hitting Josh Koscheck with a sucker punch after their UFC 113 fight, a gesture that may be the first step in repairing his tarnished image, but that likely won't be enough to get him back into the UFC which fired him immediately after the incident. "I've had a long flight home to consider my actions and regret the mistake I made on Saturday. I would like to apologise to the UFC and the Athletic Commission for what I've done as well as all the fans and sponsors that support me," the English Daley said in a prepared statement he gave the Telegraph. "I would also like to offer my sincerest apologies to Josh Koscheck who did not deserve the cheap shot I threw. He did what he needed to do in order to win the fight and get the job done, and I foolishly reacted to the situation."

Quinton Jackson Fighting To KO Rashad Evans-Not For Glory Or Fame
(mmamania.com)
And in recent comments he made on Michael Bisping's website, he wants people to know that...and that apparently he can talk about other fighters without saying "whoop their @$$" at some point. "I still want to clear [something] up...some of my fans don't understand why I didn't fight Rashad in the beginning. I don't think...the fans that don't understand now, I don't think they'll ever understand. Just because I'm a fighter, doesn't mean I can't do other things. I just want my fans to know...no matter what, even though I haven't been in the cage for a while...people think that I went Hollywood, people always got negative stuff to say. People always underestimate me. I've been in this game for a while; I just think it's funny. I'm just gonna go out there and do my job. I wanna knock Rashad out as quick as possible and get on with my career ... I don't fight for glory and fame like some fighters. I don't wanna walk around acting all tough coz I'm a fighter. But when people run they mouth like Rashad...they get dealt with. I hope he learns his lesson."
