The former UFC welterweight fighter Paul Daley is coming off a recent win over Jorge Masvidal at Shark Fights 13. Daley marked his second consecutive MMA win since his release from the Ultimate Fighting Championships. In a recent interview, Daley talked about how much of a fan he is of Strikeforce fighter Nick Diaz and would love to test his stand-up skills with him in the near future.
From Paul Daley:
“Nick Diaz – great fighter. It took me a while to come round to it. As a person people say he’s a bit of a (expletive), that sort of stuff, but as a fighter I’m a huge Nick Diaz fan. A lot of people say stuff about his boxing and everything, I think he’s a fantastic boxer. He’s one of my favorite fighters at the moment … Outside of the UFC, he’s probably the biggest name out there, most highly rated. I think he’s a badass, and I want to test myself. I think Nick Diaz would be a great fight for me … If that could happen at some point in the future, I’d really look forward to it.”
