“I’m looking forward to a fantastic main event in Liverpool on July 20, and I’d like to thank Bellator for their cooperation in allowing Paul Daley to compete for Cage Warriors,” stated Cage Warriors CEO Graham Boylan, whose company also recently bought out Ronnie Mann‘s Bellator contract.

Daley, an English fighter, is on a 5-1 run that includes stints with Strikeforce and current home Bellator. The former UFC fighter fights for Cage Warriors for the first time since 2008, when he knocked out Bojan Kosednar. It’s one of the 23 knockouts he’s registered in 32 career wins.

After suffering just his second loss (to UFC contender Demian Maia), he took a five-year break from the sport beginning in 2005. However, since his return, he’s posted a 5-0-1 record that included an April knockout of Michal Kozmer (8-3 at the time) in his home country.
