The next fight for Daley is going to be under Strikeforce. He just won a tough decision win over Jorge Masvidal at Shark fights who was also signed by Strikeforce. There will be some intriguing match ups for him in the upcoming future.
While the news has been announced globally through Strikeforce, MMAWeekly managed to confirm with various sources close to the situation that a debut will likely occur towards the end of the year, it will be against a high caliber adversary with an exciting style, but with no confirmed bout in the offering at the moment.
Speaking independently to sources in Brazil, it is rumored that recent 170lb debutant Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos currently leads the way as a possible opponent.
For Daley's part, the deal marks a significant step forward in opposition but still opens up doors to remain active - if the promotion doesn't have anything lined up for him; Daley has long been a Ronin fighter and likes to remain active on the circuit, this new deal means that if opportunities in Japan present themselves, and Strikeforce is willing, we may see some further exchange bouts between the American and Japanese promotions.
