Paul Daley has let the world know that he wants K.J. Noons for his next fight for Strikeforce. So what does the former EliteXC lightweight champion have to say to in response?
“Of course he wants that, I beat Nick Diaz and everybody knows it. I beat Nick, that’s why he wants to fight me.:
“Of course it would be exciting to watch me knockout Paul Daley. Everybody would want to see that, but the thing is nobody wants to see Paul Daley. He’s like the black eye of MMA, this guy’s the leftovers of the UFC. I’m surprised Strikeforce even picked him up. He’s trying to make his name so of course he’s going to call somebody out that beat Nick Diaz. That’s how he’s trying to get his name out there.”
“He talks so much s--- and really when I look at his record, he beat Martin Kampmann, that’s about it I think of off the top of my head."
“If he fights Nick, that’s an easy win for Nick in my book. I think that’s why Nick’s going to take the fight, easy win for Nick Diaz. Paul Daley won’t even make it to the championship rounds with Nick Diaz.”
“You can say K.J. Noons is a one-dimensional fighter, but nobody can keep me down or submit me. He is definitely one-dimensional because once you take him down he’s like a fish out of water. If he fights me, I’m going to knock him out."
“If people want to see me knock him out and Strikeforce wants it then I’m cool. I’m just saying that he’s trying to build his name obviously by calling other people out. I’m not saying no to Paul Daley cause I’ll knock his ass out, but Strikeforce’s goal for me, and myself and my team is to go back to 155.”
