Strikeforce poll: Paul Daley wants to 'qualify' for a welterweight title shot by fighting ...


Gilbert Melendez?

"El Nino" sounds like he's down, but "Semtex" doesn't think he'll get much love from the media according to his recent post on The Underground:

Gilbert Melendez has called me out. Says he'll fight at 170lbs. I'm down, but i know i will get negative feedback from the MMA Media for fighting a Lightweight...again, despite having KO/TKO'd 2 middleweights in my past 3 fights (Acacio and Smith). So still we have a problem, what i want is another fight in between fighting Diaz, a fight that makes sense and qualifies me, for fighting for the Strikeforce WW title.

So how about it Maniacs? Which fight "qualifies" Daley for a welterweight title shot?
