Daley to fight in Shark Fights 3

Amarillo, Texas-based Shark Fights Promotions has become the 'come-up' show for scrapped UFC and Strikeforce fighters. Their upcoming 'Strikeforce 13' event scheduled for September 11 already features some big name fighters to include Keith Jardine and Houston Alexander, both of whom fought for the UFC.

According to MMA Weekly, Shark Fights has upped the stakes, signing British fighter Paul Daley to the card. MMA Weekly quoted Shark Fights president Brent Medley making the following statements:

"Words cannot express how elated we are that Paul Daley has agreed to fight for our organization. Daley is arguably one of the best 170-pound fighters in the world." states Brent Medley, president of Shark Fight Promotions.

"We are currently in the process of choosing Daley's opponent. Several marquee fighters are being considered and a decision will be made very soon."

Shark Fights has been promoting shows since October of 2008. They have hosted 10,000 seat shows. Shark Fights 13 looks to be their heaviest card to date.
