MMAWeekly is reporting that Paul Daley and Nick Diaz could be fighting for the EliteXC 160 lbs title in the near future. Daley told MMAWeekly that he was offered Jake Sheilds or Diaz and Daley choose Diaz. Due to scheduling conflicts it does not look like the fight will be happening at the EliteXC show on September 15th in Hawaii.
“I originally had my hopes quite high about flying to Hawaii when I read the Diaz piece, but everything is straight now and I won’t be fighting Diaz on the 15th of September” stated Daley clarifying that he won’t be Diaz’s opponent for this date, but he didn’t rule out fighting him in the future. “I will be fighting on the November Elite XC show as a prelude to Diaz, after that it’s me and Diaz for the belt”. Before Daley runs riot stateside again he has his hands full with a Muay Thai fight coming up in Nottingham on Saturday and obviously the challenge of Pride/UFC veteran Mark Weir to deal with at Cage Rage.
