Former UFC welterweight contender Paul Daley (27-11-2) will officially return to the cage for the fourth time this year, as he takes on fellow UFC veteran Jordan Radev (23-4) at BAMMA 7. Promotional Head of Business Development Liam Fisher released the news to MMAWeekly.com on early Monday morning.
Daley returns to BAMMA after a brief fling in Strikeforce. The 28-year-old British striker lost two straight bouts in the Zuffa-owned organization, including a welterweight championship slugfest with Nick Diaz that became an early candidate for ‘Fight of the Year.'
Meanwhile, Radev is set to make his promotional debut after stops in M-1 and the UFC. The 35-year-old Bulgarian enters the bout on the heels of a four-fight win streak that includes a recent split decision win over Maro Perak at M-1 Selection Europe.
BAMMA 7 is scheduled for September 10th at The National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, England. The event features two championship bouts and is headlined by a non-title middleweight contest between Jim Wallhead and Frank Trigg.
