Diaz Vs Daley

April 10, 2011 by staff 

Diaz Vs Daley, Apparently, Strikeforce is working as usual. Exciting fights? Cheque. Nick Diaz mocks his opponent from the opening bell? Cheque. A program to control around 90 minutes? Cheque. Mauro Ranallo bad one liners? Cheque. Gus Johnson clown makeup? Check and mate.

With two first-round finishes and a great performance from Keith Jardine, Strikeforce and had an entertaining show which was the main event between Nick Diaz and Paul Daley. The two decided to put on a hell of a round of entertainment.

Diaz jaw Daley on instructions from John McCarthy, and continued her chatter after the start of the fight. If there was any doubt about what strategy to employ Diaz, made it clear from the beginning that he was not afraid to stand with Daley.

As the fight unfolded, it became clear that both men were able to stop the other. Diaz Daley overwhelmed with high-volume style that has confounded opponents of Strikeforce in recent years. Halfway through the round, however, Daley landed with a crash that put Diaz face first on the carpet. Diaz said in the post-fight interview that there was no danger, but that’s not what the scene looked like the audience.

He recovered, however, and returned to delivering a beating Daley. With the next round to an end, Diaz landed a combination of multiple hit over the fence that hurt Daley. As is disengaged, Daley ran and found on his back. Replays showed no landing strike during the fight, the accumulation of damage during the previous exchange with her brain scrambled.

Diaz took advantage, landing punches from the standing position with Daley. John McCarthy stepped in to stop the match with just three seconds left, and Daley appears to have offered any resistance. A questionable decision from the veteran civil servant, but a strike defensible, however.


A few years ago I would have described boxing Nick Diaz as “tapping.” During his recent fights, however, Diaz hits now seem harmful. If Diaz has added power to his impressive volume, which will be a handful for most of the world at pounds.
It will be interesting to see if Daley’s performance does nothing to improve his relationship with Dana White and UFC. Some people thought Daley would need a dominant victory over Diaz in order to maintain employment with Zuffa, but there is something to say about his spirit in a losing cause.
As I said before the fight, 23 years old, Gilbert Melendez hit -year-old Tatsuya Kawajiri in 2006. There should be no surprise that a -year-old Melendez put a serious injury in a 32-year-old Kawajiri. Meléndez Kawajiri swarmed from the opening bell, and made a serious case of the unification of the UFC, Strikeforce title fight later this year.
Poor to judge? Business as usual. Gegard Mousasi had won all three rounds of his fight with Keith Jardine, winning a 29-27 decision when factoring in the deduction of points in the first round. Two judges scored the bout 28-28. Abe Belardo scored round the second round to Jardine, while Lester Griffin Jardine received a year-round. I’ll break the numbers in depth tomorrow, but the numbers simply indicate that both rounds FightMetric are clear to Mousasi.
If it was not obvious before, Lyle Beerbohm is not able to compete at the top of the lightweight division.
In news not Strikeforce, Ben Askren put in a dominant performance against Nick Thompson more Bellator 40. A look at the comments section of the blog’s live fight uncovered common criticisms seriously when a potential customer is unable to complete a combat veteran. The fact of the matter is that Askren did almost everything he wanted in the course of fifteen minutes. That’s positive, no matter how you spin.
