Paul Daley Vs. Evangelista “Cyborg” Official For “Strikeforce: Fedor Vs. Henderson”

Strikeforce confirmed at last night’s “Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum” event that an exciting welterweight match up between British slugger Paul “Semtex” Daley and Brazilian brawler Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos will take place at the upcoming Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson card in July.

Daley most recently appeared in action on April 9 at Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley against Strikeforce welterweight champ Nick Diaz in a barnburner of a title fight which ended in the first round with a TKO victory for Diaz. Daley sandwiched four victories between losses to Josh Koscheck — after which he threw his infamous UFC-career-ending cheap shot — and Diaz. The 28-year-old Team Rough House fighter owns twenty of his twenty-seven victories via KO/TKO; his overall record stands at 27-10-2.

Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos also last appeared in action against Diaz, having met the Stockton kid in January and losing via second round submission. The 33-year-old Chute Boxe product is known for his aggressiveness and willingness to engage, having put together a record of 18-14 with 11 KO/TKOs over his MMA career.

Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson goes down on July 30 at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois.
