Paul Daley, welterweight Cage Rage Champion and standout Pro Elite fighter has announced on the Cage Worriers message-boards, that he will be retiring following his fight at March 29 EliteXC-Strikeforce co-promoted event featuring Cung Le vs. Frank Shamrock.

Daley who impressed at the latest ShoXC: Elite Challenger Series” event in Atlantic City, N.J., knocking out Sammy Morgan with a fierce elbow in the first round.

Here is the message:

This is for the fighters, fans, promoters and trolls alike.

As of now i will be stepping down as Cage Rage Champion (British and world), FX-3 Champion and KOTR champion. I vacate all these titles. Futher more i consider my self retired (from all MMA/Thai boxing) as of March 29th. March 29th i will fullfill my contracted commitment for Pro Elite, against a yet un named opponent.

No speculation, No futher annonucments, once i’ve found the path i originally set out on in the Martial Arts, i may return to this SPORT, Maybe 6months-Maybe 6 years, who knows.

Who will be the next welterweight CRC champ. FX-3 champ????…

Thanks

    I hope this isn't true because his is one of my favorite up and comming fighters. I know he turned down a contract with the UFC but I didn't think he was thinking of retiring. I don't see how you can retire when you are destroying people and don't hold the EliteXC title yet.

    who knows maybe he just needs some rest or its a contract thing he is trying to clear up.he said he may return and that might be his real plan.

    it doesn't make much sense to me because he is a rising star. but maybe he wants to do something else with his life.
