Paul 'Semtex' Daley Still in Negotiations with UFC, Others

British welterweight Paul "Semtex" Daley is still in negotiations with a number of promotions and a deal with the UFC has not yet been finalized, contrary to the reports Wednesday of a four-fight deal.

"These reports are premature, we have signed nothing," Daley's manager told FanHouse Thursday morning. "We're in talks with groups, one of whom includes the UFC."

Daley (21-8-2) was left searching for his next fight after learning Friday that his scheduled Aug. 1 bout against Xtreme Couture's Jay Hieron was off with the cancellation of the entire Affliction "Trilogy" event.

"I put a lot of effort into this camp, training and financially," Daley told FanHouse last week. "It's left me [expletive]."

The former Cage Rage champion quickly expressed interest in stepping in against Nick Diaz on the Aug. 15 Strikeforce card but Hieron has since claimed the spot.
