Commission: Daley Suspended 30 Days for Koscheck Punch

By Loretta Hunt Aug 10, 2010
Former UFC welterweight Paul Daley has been suspended for 30 days for punching Josh Koscheck following the final bell of their UFC 113 contender’s bout on May 8 in Montreal, according to Collette Lepianay, information agent for the Governing Body of Alcohol, Races and Games of Quebec (RACJ), which oversees combat sports in the province.

Daley’s disciplinary action was handed down at a meeting held by the regulatory agency on Tuesday, said Lepianay. According to Lepianay, Daley did not attend the meeting, as he’d agreed to the suspension and wasn’t going to contest it.

Lepianay couldn’t confirm if the 30-day suspension would be retroactive or if it would commence on Tuesday.

Daley is scheduled to face Jorge Masvidal at Shark Fights 13 on Sept. 11 at the Amarillo Civic Center Coliseum in Amarillo, Texas -- 33 calendar days from Tuesday.

Shark Fights president and matchmaker Brent Medley was not immediately available for comment. A call to the Texas Combative Sports Program’s office was not immediately returned.

Daley notched a third-round submission win over Daniel Acacio at Impact Fighting Championship 2 on July 18 in Sydney, Australia.
