Strikeforce officials haven't confirmed it yet, but according to a press release from his management, British striker Paul Daley is set to square off against Brazilian slugger Evangelista 'Cyborg' Santos. From his management's release:
"I’m happy to be fighting again. It’s a big fight. For those who haven’t seen the Melvin Manhoef vs. Cyborg fight, watch it and expect the same outcome for Cyborg … He’ll be knocked out," Daley said.
"Just like me, Cyborg’s been around since the Cage Rage days. He brings experience and power to the cage, like me. He’s an aggressive guy, like me. And it will be an entertaining fight, like mine always are."
Santos was originally expected to face Tarec Saffiedine, but that bout was never confirmed. Both Santos and Daley enter this bout having most recently lost to former Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz.
