UFC Fighter Banned for Sucker Punch

5/9/2010 12:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paul Daley is "done" fighting in the UFC, says head honcho Dana White, after Daley tried to sucker punch opponent Josh Koscheck after the bell last night.


White was adamant about dumping Daley in the post-fight presser, saying, "He'll never come back ... I don't care if he's the best 170-pounder in the world. He's never coming back here. There's no excuse for that. You never hit a guy like that after the bell."

Koscheck won easily by a unanimous decision. White said afterward Daley was released from the UFC. He sure acts fast.

Dana is turning into the next Vince McMahon. He's running the show like dictator and paying his top fighters little money compared to boxing. UFC seems to have some big name match ups every month and the pay per view money doesn't seem to trickle down to the fighters. Dana always says this is the fastest growing sport around the world, well then pay your fighters some around the world money. The expenses to run an organization arguement only goes so far, you have to be turning a profit already unless he's a bad businessman or a tight wade. Which is it?

This is unbelievable!!! I watched the fight and Koscheck got everything he deserved!! The only way he knows how to win a fight is by being a little B****, and acting like he got caught in the eye with Daley's knee. When anyone who saw it knows it was a pure MISS!!! Dana needs to take this ban off Daley, and re-watch the fight to see who REALLY should have won the fight Sat~ It sure as hell shouldn't have been Koscheck~

How is walking up to a guy once the fight is over, and his guard down, and punching him in the face, not a sucker punch?



What is that called then, a love tap? Granted it didn't look like much in the clip, but Paul Daley doesn't need to do much to inflict a lot of damage with his left hook.



He's banned, good riddance, no need to feel that sorry for him though, he can go Dream or Strike.

MMA is a dangerous sport. If his level of disciple is that low, he is not ready to fight at the professional level.

koscheck is a punk    

To be honest Koscheck should have gotta his ass beat down way more then just a sucker punch.He has no respect for anybody and doesn't give a **** about anything. He is a joke of a "fighter" or whatever he thinks he is, and is strait up the worst coach on the ultimate fighter show ever period. Every other coach was great and wanted to help out the guys to become better fighters.Josh doesn't care about his team he just cares if his team wins. GSP is very professional in everything he does and really wants to help his team out. He always just has a good attitude and shows respect to everybody. I can't wait for him to kick joshes ass because it will happen. Josh should show some god dam respect if he likes him or not. GSP has been in the sport a while now and has been champ for a long time so i wouldn't talk smack like josh does every chance he gets. Hes a punk that is giving UFC a bad rep because who wants some **** talking punk in the UFC???? Sure as hell not me and many other feel the same. Josh also crossed the line on the newest episode of the Ultimate Fighter when he put his hands on GSP's Trainer. Josh are you really that stupid?, who does that seriously. It's not professional what so ever and if i were Dana White i would have kicked your ass out of the UFC. So what if he was a male nurse he's trying to make living so shut your face Josh.Another thing that really pisses me off about josh is that he keeps ripping on GSP and Canada. Not a good move josh, if u ever fight in Canada i would put on a bullet proof vest while you fight because im pretty sure every single person in Canada wants you dead. Show some respect for my Country you punk, I have more then enough respect for the USA so why cant you do the same? Well your a punk. I hate your guts and I'm not a MMA fighter but i would fight you anyday. Eat my **** *******!
