Now that Paul Daley has been named as the No. 1 contender for Nick Diaz’s Strikeforce welterweight belt, the British bomber is wasting no time getting ready for the eventual showdown.

“Diaz does that and I think his boxing’s underrated,” Daley said about the Strikeforce welterweight champion’s willingness to stand with opponents. “I think his boxing is phenomenal. He’s a great striker and he’s a guy that comes to fight. It was a great display of that in that fight. He was fighting with Cyborg standing up, Cyborg took him down, and he carried on fighting and submitted him. As a fighter, Nick Diaz is phenomenal.”

“Although he’s fought a lot of guys standing up, he’s not fought me. I don’t mean to be arrogant and I don’t mean to continue piping on about it, but I’m a whole different animal when it comes to the stand-up game and I’ve continued to get better.

“I highly doubt there’s anyone in the welterweight division in MMA at the moment that’s on the scene, that’s getting press, that hits as hard as me. I don’t believe there’s a middleweight fighter that can get hit by me and not be in serious trouble.”

“Nick Diaz isn’t going to go toe to toe with me. More like my fist and his head landing at my toe, none of this toe to toe business.".

“Diaz, everybody knows if you come stand toe to toe with me, that would be the most stupidest game plan he could ever have. I don’t care who you’ve fought, you’ve never fought me, you’ve never been hit by me.”

“I don’t do it for publicity when I say his expiry date’s going to be up, that’s genuinely how I feel. I think the build-up could be interesting. I think if Diaz lets his mouth flow away with him, I think it could be quite entertaining.”

i try hard to not like diaz but when you see him in the ring you have to give him his due. semtex needs to learn you can't just punch your way through MMA. you have to study the whole game. you miss that shot or diaz takes your punches than what? what if it hits the ground? did you see how quick cyborg got owned on the ground?

I think everyone is secretly hoping Semtex gets that W in Bamma, whether they like him or not

 Nick does him like he did Zaromskis clinch, knees, then boxing up a tired Daley.

Nick's takedowns are horrible. I dont think he can take anyone down with decent takedown defense. This is going to be a stand up fight.

what i'm anxious to see is if Diaz talks trash before this fight or if he goes the respect route. Diaz doesn't talk trash, i think that means he's worried about the Semtex.

this is the worst match up for somone like diaz. i like both guys about the same but as long as semtex can stay standing he should at least win a decision. diaz is a fantastic athlete biut not a great wrestler and his punches while good are nothing paul hasnt dealt with. if semtex cant win this fight there is no one outside the ufc that beats diaz

Lol!! Nick will ko Daley in 2. Nicks been fighting every supposed superior striker the same way. He beats them on their feet and every fight you people say " oh, so and so is going to ko him if he stands" lol. Daley doesn't have the tools to beat Nick either. Phone Post

^ this.. until someone beats diaz.. it's just big talk. It must be demoralizing to be a celebrated striker, and find yourself on the wrong end of a diaz beatdown.

Agreed, Nick's struggles have always been against guys that can control him from top position (i.e Sheirk, Sanchez), and even in those fights he wasn't finished. In fact I can't even remember a fight where he's been KO'd/TKO'd, correct me if I'm wrong. I'd say be careful not to underestimate his boxing again. As far as getting it to the ground, there are other ways to get a fight to the ground than straight on take downs. Wouldn't be surprised if he were to pull guard from the clinch or something like that.
That said, a fight is always one well placed punch away from being over.
My question is, if Diez gets through Daily, and the Miller fight doesn't happen, then what? SF WW div is seriously lacking depth. They have Woodly coming up through the challengers series, but he's a long way away from earning a title shot. Is there someone I'm not thinking of than can give the WW title a credible match?

Diaz will pull guard, mark my words

It's exactly the reason that Diaz has out-boxed strikers that he will make the mistake of standing with Daley, goodnight
