Strikeforce Welterweight Champion Nick Diaz, who will put his title on the line against Paul "Semtex" Daley Saturday, discusses his opponent, as well as taking the bout on short notice. Diaz feels he is "the most overworked, overtrained, underpaid fighter," but says he isn't the type to turn down a fight. When discussing Daley, he says he respects the Brit, but "hopes he doesn't hit him with a cheap shot."
Diaz will make his third title defense when he meets Daley in the headlining bout of Saturday's Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley event. The stacked card will also feature Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez going head to head with Japanese stand-out Tatsuya Kawajiri, as well as former Light Heavyweight champ Gegard Mousasi taking on UFC veteran Keith Jardine.
