Paul Daley isn't exactly the best of friends with Dana White. The British slugger has engaged in a public on-again, off-again war of words with the UFC President since an unceremonious release from the promotion in mid-2010.
Though it doesn't mean he hasn't stayed busy. Far from it actually, as Daley has ripped through a 6-2 record in various organizations, including a grueling fight of the year candidate with Nick Diaz in April. With all the attention "Semtex" has been garnering, the assembled British media at the UFC 138 post-fight press conference took the opportunity to ask White if the embattled fighter has earned a second-chance inside the Octagon.
"It's not like Daley's been so friendly since that happened," White simply replied, according to reports from John Morgan. "I'm not a fan, to be honest.
"We'll see what happens with [the Strikeforce-Showtime deal] first. I just have a hard time with what Daley did."
Daley was notoriously kicked-out of the UFC immediately after taking a post-fight swing at Josh Koscheck at UFC 113. Since then he has collected wins over UFC veterans Scott Smith, Luigi Fioravanti, Jordan Radev, and Strikeforce number-one contender Jorge Masvidal.
