AddictedMMA.com is reporting that welterweight contender Paul "Semtex" Daley missed weight for his BAMMA fight with Yuya Shirai:
Latest reports from the Bamma weigh-ins have confirmed that "Paul Semtex" Daley has failed to make weight.
After coming in at 2lbs over weight at the weigh-in, Semtex was given a further hour to drop the 2lbs. Unfortunatly for everybody it seems that it wasn't possible and Semtex only managed to drop another pound.
Paul Daley announced before the weigh-in on his facebook page that there had been an issue with the sauna that he was using.
More reports are confirming that Paul Daley is now refusing to appear at the press conference.
Strikeforce has had trouble finding appropriate challengers for Diaz, who himself admitted that his last opponent, Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos, was basically the only guy they could find to fill the spot.
This is the third time that Daley's missed weight in the past 13 months, and that means Strikeforce would be absolutely crazy to book him for a title fight when there's a pretty good chance he'll miss weight.
Keep in mind that the weight limit for a welterweight title fight is 170, as the typical one-pound allowance isn't allowed when a belt is on the line.
Tyron Woodley, step up!
