Paul 'Semtex' Daley vs. Jay Hieron at Affliction 3

Paul "Semtex" Daley has confirmed that he is scheduled to take on Jay Hieron at Affliction 3 on August 1 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

Affliction has refrained from confirming any details about the event, but an official announcement could be coming soon. Fedor Emelianenko vs. Josh Barnett is expected to be the main event.

Daley (21-8-2) has been bouncing around from promotion to promotion in recent years, bringing his explosive striking to EliteXC, Cage Warriors, MFC, Ultimate Gladiators and most recently WFFC. His last ten victories have all been via strikes and has only lost once in his career via TKO, and it was only due to a dislocated thumb.

Hieron (17-4) has won five straight and is coming off a KO win over Jason High at Affliction 2 in January. Hieron was first seen on the big stage in June 2004 at UFC 48, when he was walked through by the then emerging Georges St-Pierre. After joining Xtreme Couture and stringing together a 7-2 record with the IFL, Hieron has since positioned himself as a welterweight with the potential to break into the top ranks.
