Paul “Semtex” Daley returns to kickboxing at Glory 5 in England on March 23, sources close to the fight told MMAWeekly.com.

Known more for his mixed martial arts exploits, Daley has a 14-3 record in kickboxing, including honors such as the King of the Ring European and World Muay Thai Championships.

Daley, the former Cage Rage welterweight titleholder, has fought for titles in EliteXC and Strikeforce, and had a run in the UFC.  His last mixed martial arts fight was under the Bellator banner, winning by knockout over Ruby Bears in July.

Daley was selected by fans to face War Machine in a vote for the first Bellator fight on Spike TV.  War Machine was forced out of the fight due to injury. Daley was later removed from the welterweight tournament after he was prevented from entering the U.S. for being arrested in connection with a bar fight in his native England.

Daley headlines Cage Contender XVI on Feb. 23 in Dublin, Ireland, against Patrick “Dexter” Vallee.

A month later, he’ll return to kickboxing at the Excel Arena in London.  The card is headlined by a kickboxing bout between kickboxing legend Remy Bonjasky and Tyrone Spong.
