  • Bjorn Rebney Would Love to Match War Machine Against Paul Daley, But Can’t Right Now By: Sherdog.com Staff




    Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney, on “Beatdown,” discussing whether we could see War Machine against Paul Daley at some point:

    “I would love to do that fight. That would be a wickedly good fight … . The problem with Paul right now is he still doesn’t have his legal situation worked out so that he can get into the U.S. Paul still cannot travel to the U.S. from the U.K. I’ve been e-mailing him back and forth, and we’ve been talking to what’s called in London his solicitor -- it’s his attorney -- and they have high hopes that it’s going to get cleared up and the case is going to get dropped. They’ve had some good progress in the case the last two times they’ve been in front of the judge, but he still can’t get into the United States.”

  • Bellator Thanks Zuffa for Releasing Paul Daley By: Sherdog.com Staff




    Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney, on “Beatdown,” discussing Bellator’s signing of Paul Daley:

    “I’m forever thankful to Zuffa relative to Paul Daley. I’m thankful they gave him the release. I’ve been a ‘Semtex’ fan for years. If you like mixed martial arts and you like explosive fights in the cage and you like guys who bring the fight, Paul Daley has got to be up in your top-10 list. Win or lose, he doesn’t know how to have a boring fight. … As soon as that opportunity came up and he actually got the release, we moved on that immediately. I think that’s a no-brainer. He’s been very vocal and very articulate about what happened, about the misstep that he had, very public about it and … I think, spoken very eloquently about it. I’m just thrilled to have him under the banner.”

  • Woodley: Daley Won’t Look Me in the Eye By: Sherdog.com Staff

    Tyron Woodley (Pictured), on “Beatdown,” discussing his bout Saturday against Paul Daley:

    “He can talk whatever he wants to talk, but he doesn’t believe it. He won’t even look me in the eye when he shakes my hand. I judge a man by what he does, not by what he says because a mouth can say anything. It’s going to be an ugly fight. I’m going to try to wear his butt out as many ways as I can. If it ends in a TKO or knockout, whatever, so be it, but at the end of the day, I’m going to get the victory.”

  • The Turning Point: Diaz vs. Daley By: Chris Nelson

    The vaunted chin of Nick Diaz survived its most onerous test of Diaz’s reign as Strikeforce welterweight champion Saturday night, while another of the Californian’s hallmarks ensured that he left San Diego with gold intact.

    Diaz and challenger Paul Daley put forth the type of vicious firefight most expected inside the Valley View Casino Center, but the confrontation truly began on Friday, when the notorious trash-talkers exchanged epithets at the official weigh-ins. The tension was evident immediately before the bout, when Daley grinned at Diaz as referee John McCarthy gave final instructions, evoking further verbiage from the titlist.

    Five seconds into the bout, Diaz was into his usual routine, inching gingerly forward and chatting with Daley while offering up his jaw to the British slugger. Backing Daley into the fence, Diaz popped his challenger with a right jab, then hurled a left to the body. Early in the round, the sequence took little effect; in the end, it proved Diaz’s best friend.
