Paul Daley Hit With 30-Day Suspension For Josh Koscheck Incident

Former UFC welterweight contender Paul Daley allowed frustration and a bad temper to get the better of him after he had succumbed to a three round stifling at the hands of Josh Koscheck this past May at UFC 113 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, when he threw a sucker-punch at Koscheck well after the final bell had rung. That sucker-punch would seemingly cost Daley his UFC career as UFC President Dana White issued a permanent ban on the British slugger for his post-fight foul. Now, according to, Daley will further pay for his transgression with a 30-day suspension.

Collette Lepianay, the information agent for the Governing Body of Alcohol, Races and Games of Quebec (RACJ), informed Sherdog of the suspension. The punishment was handed down at a meeting this past Tuesday which Daley did not show up for as he had already agreed to the terms of the suspension.

Since being ejected from the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Daley appeared at Impact FC 2-The Uprising in Sydney, Australia where he defeated Daniel Acacio via Submission (elbows).

“Semtex” is currently slated to take on Jorge Masvidal this September 11th at Shark Fights 13 at the Amarillo Civic Center Coliseum in Amarillo, Texas. No word yet on when Daley’s suspension will go in to effect and whether or not it will impact his appearance at the Shark Fights card.
