KJ is not a WW he has looked out of shape at 155. He is fighting Masvidal at 155 next I believe. It would be absurd for him to fight Daley who has trouble making 170 also he probably has 20+ pounds of muscle on him.

If KJ isn't a WW then why did he fight Diaz for the title?

Because that was the biggest fight they could possibly put on outside of Overeem/Fedor at the time. Are you somehow unaware of the back story and all the hype that rematch had? Noons moved up (and won that fight) because it was beneficial to his career. Paul Daley isn't a draw fighting at such a weight disadvantage wouldn't pay off in the same way.

Nick Diaz Vacates Strikeforce Title To Face Gsp

Quote:
And the news just keeps coming…

In another announcement made at the UFC 131 pre-fight presser, UFC president Dana White revealed that current, *ahem*, former Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz has given up his title for the pursuit of a new one.

According to White, Diaz is now a UFC fighter and as a result, has been forced to vacate his title. However, the Stockton California resident does have the option to return to Strikeforce in the future should he want to. (But that’s highly unlikely).

No word was immediately given on what this means for the Strikeforce welterweight division, but White clarified that a bout for the vacant Strikeforce strap would be decided on soon and contested before the year’s end.

The Strikeforce roster currently holds fighters such as Cyborg Santos, Paul Daley and Tyrone Woodley who all may be considered for a shot at gold.

Nick Diaz is set to return to the UFC’s Octagon to face Georges St Pierre on October 27th in the main event of UFC 137 for the welterweight title.

I think Daley vs Woodley is the best match they can make atm. I could get pretty excited for that match. If Daley wants to become elite he is going to have to learn to beat wrestlers. It would be a fairly evenly matched contest for the co-main event of a Fedor/Henderson/Melendez/HW GP card.

My money would go on Woodly, but Daley is a large step up in competition and could get that early KO.

I guess Daley/Woodley is up next.

They won't have anyone to fight after that though, Strikeforce is really lucky they got bought by the UFC, they're gonna having a hard time finding challengers soon.

Hopefully somebody from the UFC moves over. In all honesty I think that after Lytle sends Hardy running out of the UFC with his tail between his leg he could likely go to SF and wrestlef*** Daley for the strap. My actual pick is Gilbert Melendez because he is always looking for a challenge.

What sucks is that he is vacating his belt so he can get his ass handed to him by GSP. Hopefully he is a getting a sweet contract.
