With less then three weeks before the scheduled event, it is going to be a challenge for the UFC to find a worthy opponent for Paul Daley.
Paul Daley is mad,
I’d [accept] any fight.. I just wanna fight. Condit is a big pussy IMO, I have inside information on that dude….it’s all good as long as I fight,” he wrote, a comment that is sure to enrage former WEC welterweight champion Condit.
A source close to Daley said the British welterweight is under the impression Condit had not begun a proper training camp, and is questioning how long Condit had known he would not be fighting. “Paul has spent a shitload of money on this training camp out of his own pocket, and his team have bought non-refundable tickets to go out to the US for the fight so hopefully Paul gets another opponent for this card, he is really pissed off,” [FightersOnly]
