Dana White Admits He Is Having a Hard Time Forgiving Paul Daley

- During the pre-UFC Fight Night in Berlin media scrum, Dana White was asked about a possible return of Paul Daley to the UFC. White had the following to say…
"Paul Daley had his management write me a letter a few days ago, basically saying that he has grown up a lot since that incident, he's been on a win streak, and it's one of the biggest regrets of his life, and things like that. I showed it to (UFC CEO) Lorenzo (Fertitta) and Lorenzo's like, ‘it's up to you brother, what do you want to do?' And it's such a hard one for me. It's a hard one for me."
The situation is regarding the UFC 113 event. Following the end of their fight, which went to a decision, a frustrated Daley threw a left and connected to the jaw of opponent Josh Koscheck. This was not an "at the bell" scenario, it happened way after the bell, and referee Dan Miragliotta had to pull Daley away from Koscheck.
Since Daley's UFC departure, he has gone 11-4. Three of those losses came in Strikeforce against Nick Diaz, Tyron Woodley and Kazup Misaki.
