Heavy-handed Strikeforce welterweight contender, Paul Daley tells MMAHQ.com why he will be leaving San Diego with Nick Diaz’s belt on April 9.

“I’m going to smash him, take his belt then I can take all the time off I want.

There’s no way he’ll stand up with me. He might think he wants to but his coaches won’t allow it; Cesar Gracie’s a great coach and he won’t want him trading punches.

His boxing and his lack of wrestling. I’m a better athlete than he is. He’s a really dangerous grappler but he’s got to get in close enough to make it work and I’m not going to give him the chance.”
