• Strikeforce: Diaz v Daley

Koscheck predicts bad night for Paul Daley

Josh Koscheck has taken another dig at former rival Paul Daley, predicting the Briton gets beaten in all areas of his Strikeforce welterweight title fight with Nick Diaz.

Koscheck played a supporting role in Daley's infamous departure from the UFC, visibly taunting the Brit as the seconds ticked down on his victory at UFC 113. The result was an illegal post-fight punch delivered by Daley, which led to UFC president Dana White cutting him from the organisation.

Now Koscheck has offered his thoughts on Daley v Diaz, and it is likely that the Brit will once again not enjoy what is coming out of the American's mouth.

"There's obviously a puncher's chance, Paul's a good fighter," Koscheck told The Garv. "I think Nick Diaz can beat Paul Daley standing up or on the ground."

Daley will feature in a full-length interview on the ESPN UFC Podcast on Tuesday.
