After a recent campaign from Paul Daley to get back to the UFC, the punishing striker has reportedly signed a multi-fight deal with the British Association of Mixed Martial Arts. The deal is for three fights in a 12 month period and is exclusive to the United Kingdom.

Daley and his camp announced the agreement to MMA Fighting.com, and BAMMA proceeded to confirm the report via Twitter. The30 year-old vet provided the following statement:

“I’m extremely happy to sign with a premier European promotion,” said Daley. “BAMMA provides exciting match-ups for hardcore fans, with a TV production that appeals to mainstream viewers. I’m aiming to bring my own brand of fight entertainment into households around the world the only way I, Paul ‘Semtex’ Daley, know how … knockout victories.”

When “Semtex” will make his promotional return has not been determined yet, however, BAMMA is reportedly hoping to have him fight for the organization before the year is out.

Daley was recently let go by Bellator, after reaching a plea deal in Britain, related to a previous incident involving a police officer. The fighter and fans proceeded to petition Dana White to bring the welterweight back to the UFC.

Daley is currently riding a four fight win streak and is 7-3 in his last 10 bouts.
