Swick Hurt, Paul Daley To Face Martin Kampmann At UFC 103

0

The Sun has the story:

MIKE SWICK is OUT of UFC 103 following a training accident suffered while sparring against Josh Koscheck.
Kos swept the American – nicknamed 'Quick' – causing him to land on his head.

Despite suffering a mild concussion, his injuries are not thought to be serious but we can reveal he will be unable to face Martin Kampmann on September 19.

Instead, rising British star Paul 'Semtex' Daley, 26, will step in to face the 27-year-old Dutchman on the televised card of the showpiece event, which airs live on ESPN.

Daley – who will be making his Octagon debut – told SunSport: “I got the call and I accepted. I came to the UFC to fight the best, and that's what I am going to do.

“Kampmann is on a roll with the UFC, but I will roll over him. Semtex is going to explode onto the UFC's welterweight scene at UFC 103.”
