UCMMA promoters have confirmed that fighter Paul Daley has been forced to pull out of his bout with Luke Sines at the forthcoming Cage Rage event due to take place at the Troxy in London on February 4th.
In a press release issued by the promoters, the fight organisation have confirmed that Daley will instead be fighting on the March Strikeforce card and his place at Cage Rage will be taken by Peter Irving who was last seen on Cage Rage taking on John Maguire in a punishing 3-round encounter.
Explaining the situation, the promoters confirm that “all of our contracts state that, if the UFC or Strikeforce promotions want to book a fighter for their event, then they will be released from their contract and allowed to do so. Paul Daley was already in contract to Strikeforce and it was them allowing us to have him on our event.”
“He was actually due to fight for Cage Rage UK in December but, before we could release the information, Luke Sines had to withdraw with Bronchitis. So it was rescheduled for February. Both parties were looking forward to the scrap but then Strikeforce announced on Saturday night that Paul would be fighting Kazuo Misaki. Paul is still very much looking forward to fighting Sines at a later date.”
As revealed Daley’s place will be taken by Peter Irving with both fighters agreeing to fight at 77KG now for the Welterweight K1 Title which Sines currently holds.
