Just a few hours ago, Paul Daley signed a six-fight deal with Strikeforce. This news was originally reported by Daley’s camp, and then released by the MMA site MiddleEasy.com.

Although Daley now has a contract he will still be fighting against Evangelista Cyborg at Shark Fights on September 11th.

His debut date is still unclear, but he will also be competing in a welterweight tournament, that will last from October 16th and go through April 2011.

One must also note how awhile back when Daley had first been cut from the UFC, Strikeforce made a point to state that they did not want to be known as the organization who took all the UFC’s cast-offs. But they seem to be whistling a different tune now…
