    "Semtex" will meet Igor Fernandes in the main event of the Sept. 13 show at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester, England, the promotion informed MMAFighting.com.

    Daley (34-13-2) made his triumphant return to BAMMA in December when he knocked out Romario Manoel da Silva in the second round. The win was his fifth in six fights. Since then, the British veteran has gone 4-0 in kickboxing bouts this year. This fight will mark his first MMA bout of 2014.

    Fernandes (18-6) has finished his last six opponents in a row. The Brazilian will be making his BAMMA debut.

    Paul Daley calling out 'mediocre' UFC welterweights
    http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2014/6/18...odley-mma-news
    Here's what he had to say via WHOATV.com:

    In the time I've been away from the UFC, achieving notable success and continuing to light people up I've seen the welterweight division swell with incredible fighters. Jonny Hendricks, Matt Brown and Dong Hyun Kim being among those worthy of note. I've seen fighters I once looked at with a degree of admiration throw their toys out of the proverbial pram acting like petulant children, Nick Diaz being one of them. I've also seen the spark leave the division which is seemingly filled by those content on decision wins rather than decisive knock outs or submissions.

    You only have to take a look at UFC 174 to get an idea of where I'm coming from when I say decision wins do not feature in my dna. Two men (Tyron Woodley and Rory McDonald) both coming off mediocre performances looking to seal their place...with a less than stellar performance. Seems the welterweight division is filled with stallers rather than brawlers.

    Apart from wanting to compete with the best and shake up what is essentially a division suffering from inertia the UFC surely could welcome more star power to an organisation which has seen George St Pierre take a sabbatical, Anderson Silva on a long lay off and possible retirement, Chael Sonnen, a serial drugs cheat I might add, finally hanging up his gloves.
