Nick Diaz looks to defend his Strikeforce Welterweight Title this weekend in San Diego against Paul Daley and talked this week about his opponent and gave his thoughts on Daley during the Strikeforce open workout:
â€œWell, thatâ€™s what he does,â€ Diaz said. â€œHeâ€™s like what he said: You know, he throws punches. Iâ€™ll try to win. Iâ€™ll take what I can get. Iâ€™ll try to win any way necessary, any way I can win. Thatâ€™s how I started this; I didnâ€™t start out just a boxer, you know.
â€œSo thatâ€™s what heâ€™s trying to do, what heâ€™s got to do. I understand that. So Iâ€™m over here, Iâ€™m trying to get paid, and I got to do what I got to do. Heâ€™s got to do what heâ€™s got to do. Thatâ€™s what heâ€™s â€“ that sounds good for him too. You know, he knocks me out, that sounds nice, that whole thing, you know? I mean, thatâ€™s a lovely thought for anybody whoâ€™s a striker.â€
â€œIâ€™m not really impressed with Paul Daley,â€ Diaz said. â€œIâ€™m a mixed martial artist. Heâ€™s got great standup, sure. He has good knockout power.â€
