According to Fighters Only, the UFC has just rescued Paul “Semtex” Daley from Affliction’s wreckage, signing the British 170-pounder to a four-fight contract. Daley, who was scheduled to fight Jay Hieron on the undercard of “Trilogy” before the event was canceled, is the former Cage Rage welterweight champion, and sports a record of 21-8-2, with 17 of his wins coming via stoppage due to strikes. He holds notable wins over Duane Ludwig, Jess Liaudin, Xavier Foupa-Pokam, and John Alessio.
Semtex’s one-sided submission loss to Jake Shields at EliteXC: Heat showed that his ground skills aren’t quite solid enough for him to compete with the best welterweights in the world. But when it comes to exciting knockout artists who always put on a good show, they don’t get much better than Daley.

Affliction Entertainment and M-1 Global are looking for a new opponent to face Fedor Emelianenko at Affliction “Trilogy” on Aug. 1 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. Multiple sources have told Sherdog.com that the California State Athletic Commission will not license Josh Barnett after a positive test result. Calls to Affliction Entertainment were not immediately returned. The CSAC said a comprehensive statement would be issued Wednesday.
Trying to find a replacement
Vitor Belfort has agreed in principle to face the world’s No. 1 heavyweight on 11 days’ notice, according to two separate sources close to the negotiations. One source told Sherdog.com that Emelianenko will have the opportunity to choose between Belfort and Bobby Lashley. Lashley has denied knowing anything about replacing Barnett, though.
“I don’t know if I would want it right now. Since the last fight, I haven’t really been into training again,” he said. “That fight is next week. That would be something I would really have to take a look at. To just jump in there probably wouldn’t be the smartest thing for me right now. A lot of people would say that might be a money fight. They figure, ‘If we give him enough money, will he do it?’ That’s what people tend to look at. I don’t want to get into fighting for the money so much right now.”

Hmm… This would be a tough battle for both the gorilla and the polar bear. The gorilla would have a slight advantage in intelligence as it could try and use small sticks and rocks to help beat down the bear. The silverback gorilla is said to have 10x the strength of 1 human, so not only is it smart, but also strong as hell. But, who are we kidding, were talking about a polar bear. Polar bears could way up to 1500 lbs while the biggest gorilla was a mere 600 lbs. A polar bear, that could grow up to 10 feet is the largest carnivore to walk can just force his victory upon the gorilla just by using sheer force and brutality. So I believe if they did fight, 1v1, the gorilla, although a formidable enemy, the polar bear is too big and too strong.
