Paul Daley Knocks Out Yuya Shirai In Round 1 At BAMMA 5

Paul “Semtex” Daley delivered on his promise to knockout DEEP welterweight champion Yuya Shirai in the first round of BAMMA 5 this weekend. The event took place at MEN Arena in Manchester, England. Daley vs. Shirai served as the night’s main event.

Daley connected with a beautiful uppercut, left hook combination that was the end for Shirai. The Japanese fighter remained unconscious for several minutes.

With the victory, Paul Daley earned himself a shot at the Strikeforce welterweight gold — if he makes weight. He will face off against champion Nick Diaz in a yet to be determined event.
