White recently made the dismissal of both Paul Daley and Kimbo Slice from the UFC official during the post-fight press conference for the event.
Daley sealed his fate when he threw and landed an illegal left hook to the chin of Josh Koscheck long after the final bell had signaled a halt to bout between the pair. Koscheck had thoroughly dominated the contest leading up to the career ending foul from Daley, utilizing a superior wrestling base to keep recently outcast Brit in place on the canvas for the bulk of the three rounds in a bout meant to determine a clear cut challenger to the welterweight throne.
“I didn’t like the response he gave me after I talked to him after the fight,” said White on ESPN.com immediately following the bout in regards to the conversation he had with Daley prior to deciding to cut the British slugger from the UFC. “He said he didn’t hear the bell.
“He might as well find another job because he will never fight in the UFC again.”
Kimbo has ben handed his walking papers from the organization on the heels of his first official defeat with the UFC at the hands of Matt Mitrione. The bout was a one-sided affair with Mitrione picking Slice apart on the feet before launching a grueling ground and pound asault that ultimately brought a halt to the contest, and Kimbo’s career with the UFC along with it.
