Paul Daley wants to test himself against Strikeforce welterweight champ, Nick Diaz

Former UFC welterweight, Paul “Semtex” Daley speaks about one of his favorite fighter in MMA right now, Nick Diaz, adding he’d like to fight down the line now that it’s clear that a return to the octagon is no longer an option.

Daley, speaking via, said:

“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.”

“K.J. Noons, I wouldn’t say he’s one of my favorite fighters. I don’t think too much of him, and I think Nick Diaz should put him away pretty easily. We’ll see where I’m at because I’d love to fight Nick Diaz. 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’m looking for fights that are going to motivate me. I’m not short of motivation because I love fighting, but I’m looking for something that will give me that extra intensity, and make me want to lock myself away and make me want to give 110 percent in everything that I’m doing. 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.”
