PRO MMA (promma.info) has learned from American Kickboxing Academy management that Mike Swick (14-2) suffered a concussion during training earlier this week and has been forced to pull out of his upcoming bout against Martin Kampmann (15-2) at UFC 103 in Dallas on Sept. 19.
Stepping in for Swick will be Elite XC and Cage Rage veteran Paul “Semtex” Daley (21-8-2) who will be making his UFC debut. Daley, a resident of Nottingham, England, is a dangerous striker who has finished 16 of his 21 wins by (T)KO. His last fight was a first round stoppage of Junior Barata at WFC 8 back in April.
Kampmann’s only loss in his last 12 bouts was to Nate Marquardt at UFC 88. He won a split decision in his last Octagon appearance over Carlos Condit at UFC Fight Night 18 in April.
Daley was originally scheduled to face another UFC newcomer Brian Foster (10-3) on the UFC 103 preliminary card, but due to Swick’s injury, Daley will now be awarded the opportunity of making his debut on pay-per-view.
