Daley would knock Thiago out inside two. He's a better striker. He's faster and more powerful. Paul Daley wouldn't get out kickboxed by Jon Fitch.
He'd have to keep it standing first, eat Thiago's leg kicks, and honestly, Daley's kind of overrated.
His best wins are Kampmann, Scott Smith, Hazelett, and Duane Ludwig.
Alves has smashed Hughes, Karo, and Koscheck, and was mauling Lytle's legs with leg kicks.
I never saw the hype about Daley, he's a striker with big power which some people I like I guess, but his ground game is pretty much useless, and his attitude is a massive red flag. He has no honor or respect for martial arts or his opponents.
But, everyone has their opinion's, if you wanna cheer for guys who whack people after the bell, more power to you.
