What a show, great fights…even better finishes. I was especially impressed with Paul Daley (not just because he’s british!!). That was some KO. The man has sledgehammers fists and but for his domination at the hands of Josh Koscheck he has the best record of any internationally acclaimed British fighter this year: 5 fights, 4 wins 3 stoppages, 2 first round KO’s. The last person to stop him inside the distance was Jake Shields back in 2008 and he has never been KO’d in 37 fights. 19 of his 26 wins were KO’s. The man is a machine pure and simple.
Whilst I completely disagree with what took place in the seconds after the final bell of the Koscheck fight, I wonder if Dana White will regret his decision to fire Daley and state his intention to close the UFC door to semtex indefinitely?
Seriously Mr White (yes he does read this blog….honest!): You fire Daley, yet you continue to employ fighters like Nick Lentz. All the while saying that you want exciting fighters on your books that finish fights. Have a look at the gif below, then have a little think about things!
There are some great fights for Daley in strikeforce at the moment: Kj Noons, Cyborg, Nick Diaz. He has found a great new home and if he continues to wreck people like he does, he will be the new champ. Wonder how long Dana will ignore him for after that?
