It’s been rumored for quite some time, but a welterweight
bout former Cage Rage champion Paul Daley and former World Extreme Cagefighting
champion Carlos Condit finally has ink to paper. The bout will take place on
Jan. 2 at UFC 108.

 

Daley (22-8-2) enters the bout following a TKO stoppage of
Martin Kampmann in the first round at UFC 103. The bout in Dallas put an
exclamation point on Daley’s Octagon debut against an opponent that Condit lost
a split decision to earlier this year.

 

“(Carlos) is a great fight for myself,” href="http://videos.mmaweekly.com/view_player.php?id=3281">Daley told
MMAWeekly.com. “He’s a great, game striker. Like’s to have a bang, has some
good submissions, and a bit of wrestling.

 

“But in my opinion, he’s a slightly worse version of
(Martin) Kampmann, in that I don’t think he’s as solid in every area as
Kampmann is.”

 

Condit (24-5) hasn’t sat idly by, however. Following the
loss to Kampmann, Condit’s UFC debut, he returned in September to another split
decision, but this time it was a victory over Jake Ellenberger.

 

Daley doesn’t intend for Condit to go to a third straight
decision.

 

“Of course I think I’m going to win and of course I think I’m
going to win by knockout.”

 

UFC 108 takes place Jan. 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in
Las Vegas. The Ultimate Fighting Championship has yet to name a headline bout.
