The roller coaster relationship between Nick Diaz and Paul Daley has taken yet another turn. While both welterweights have unleashed verbal assaults on past opponents, they were as cordial as can be leading up to this past weekend’s shootout.
However, at Friday’s weigh-ins they got into a heated exchange and had to be separated. The 170-pound champ didn’t stop there, as he also trash-talked Daley during the opening ticks of their scrap on Saturday.
After getting rocked early, Diaz rallied to collect an impressive 1stRound TKO victory. Immediately after defending his title, the controversial 27-year-old circled back to taunt Daley directly in his face.
Well, their latest run-in came inside the hotel lobby late Saturday night. It was clear their emotions finally settled, as their powwow was nothing short of a love-fest.
