Quoteworthy:

"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."

Freelance mixed martial artist Paul Daley looks to keep himself in the spotlight with a career outside of the UFC after becoming the latest recipient of a Zuffa lifetime ban. "Semtex" has his sights set of Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Nick Diaz, who faces KJ Noons under the Strikeforce banner in October. Meanwhile, the Brit must first dispose of Jorge Masvidal at Shark Fights 13 later tonight. Could Daley upend the Gracie jiu-jitsu black belt with his patented power punching? Or would Diaz rat-tat-tat him into another loss? Predictions on this fantasy match-up?
