Paul Daley’s UFC career came to a screeching halt when he sucker punched Josh Koscheck after their fight, which came after a heated battle of words leading into the fight. Since then Paul Daley has had no place to really call home, instead finding himself bouncing around from promotion to promotion. The latest movement for Daley has been him signing with K-1, but K-1’s next event has been postponed due to the Thailand political climate, making him once again out in the cold.
Apparently he’s been looking into getting back into the UFC, which seems like an uphill battle, but Paul Daley seems like he’s ready. [source]
“I don’t want to say too much because I’ve gotten more feedback behind the scenes, and I know there’s still certain stuff that I have to do first before going back to the UFC, or before we can take any further (steps),” Daley said. “Those are things I’m going to concentrate on first.”
“I know with the right legal team that I could get back into the U.S. pretty quick,” he said. “It’s whether the UFC wants to spend their time.”
“I have one (contract) with K-1, but they’re pretty cool to deal with and I’m sure they’d allow me to fight for the UFC if we can come to some kind of agreement, and also with FFC, which is run by Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ (Filipovic)’s former management,” he said. “I’m sure they would let me out of a contract if something could be worked out.”
