It’s the war of the trash-talkers! Nick Diaz and Paul Daley are officially set to take each other on, most likely at a San Diego Strikforce event on April 9th. The two are expected to headline this event as well.
Josh Gross of ESPN was the first one to report this heavily talked about welterweight championship bout earlier on tonight.
Nick Diaz has been on quite a winning streak, defeating his last nine oppoents, with his most recent win over Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos this past January at Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Cyborg, where submitted the fighter with a vicious arm-bar.
Paul “Semtex” Daley has been doing pretty well for himself as well since his drop from the UFC. He has won his last four fights in a row, with his most recent being over Yuya Shirai this past Saturday at BAMMA 5: Daley vs. Shirai, where Daley took him down via Knockout.
