PC:How is it going Paul?

PD:Things are going really well, thanks.

PC:While you were training for your last fight, the gym you were training at burned down. What's the status of the gym now?

PD:The gym has been rebuilt and is better than ever. We have our original team plus a whole range of new coaches. For more information go to www.mikesgym.nl.

PC: Dan Hardy gave a valiant effort in his fight against Georges St-Pierre, but he came up short. What did you think of his efforts and the fight in general?


PD:I thought GSP fought a safe and predictable fight and I think Dan showed his resilience, but I feel he would of felt he could of done more while standing.

PC:How is preparation going for your UFC 113 fight against Josh Koscheck?

PD:It's going really well. I've been training very focused and dedicated for this fight.

PC:You feel Carlos Condit bitched out of his fight with you. Do you still feel that way and are you past that fight or would you still like a chance to fight him?

PD:Why would I fight Carlos right now? I am working on a different path right now and Carlos does not figure in that. But when the time comes, he'll get what he would have gotten in the last scheduled fight; that is getting knocked out.

PC:Koscheck feels he should have been fighting GSP instead of Hardy. Now he's trying to use you as a springboard for a rematch with GSP, but I know you are no springboard for anyone.

PD:Koscheck's best bet is to just focus on this fight or it's gonna be a much quicker ending for him than even I could of hoped for. When I KO him, then he can springboard to whereever the **** he wants, but it won't be a title shot.

PC:I think if you hit anyone solid, you can KO them. Koscheck has greatly improved hands, but do you feel he has one-punch knockout power like you have?

PD:Obviously he does not have the one-puch KO power I have, but he is game to trade more, so I don't think he has a solid chin. I have faith that I can be hit, and return faster and harder if need be, but I don't plan on being hit.

PC:How much do you think the Hazelett fight put to rest the perception that any good grappler would just take you down and submit you?

PD:Not much, as Hazelett didn't have great takedowns. I still have much to prove.

PC:Are you looking forward to fighting in Canada? Is this one of the places you enjoy fighting?

PD:I enjoy a fight anywhere. I love the Canadian people though; real happy, friendly folk.

PC:Good luck against Koscheck my man. I'm sure we will be speaking before then. By the way, my man King Mo speaks very highly of you. Is there anything you want to say in closing?

PD:Shout out to King Mo! Thanks to all my supporters, sponsors, coaches, family, friends and fans.
It's not hard to tell he comes from the same place as Bisping and Hardy. lol They all are a little more cocky than they should be. However they are all good fighters. I'm still pulling for Koscheck though.

GSP's too smart for anyone at WW. " Hes so predictable, yet nobody can stop him from doing what he wants to do. Every fighter he faces says they're going to " do this and that to GSP " and when it comes fight time, he dominates you everywhere possible in the cage.

GSP is a phenomenal striker, yet he rarely uses it because everyone lets him take them down. Stop the take downs, and try to knock the champ out.

That's the only chance anyone has at WW.

I really like what you have said here. He is so predictable, then stuff the take down and make him eat it? Yea has not happened yet and probably wont anytime soon.

I have to say Hardy did far better then I would have predicted pre fight though.

Well Daley isn't exactly wrong. GSP did indeed fight a safe and predictable fight. But what is anyone at WW going to do about it? Nothing.

Bad title choice. This could of been a thread about Daley vs Koscheck (since that was what 90% of the article was on) but now it's going to be one of the 20+ threads about GSP's 111 performance.:(

Why did you just get so defensive and write paragraphs on GSP, when Daley said 2 words about him?

He's a GSP fan it's understandable, hell I get like that with the Lyoto Shogun fight that Lyoto won.....

GSP is my fav 170 pd fighter who Im just sick of seeing at 170 now, i feel he has progressed in his career and size to move ahead....:thumbsup:

like Ive stated in many posts....

GSP is damn good (I like himm too, sometimes) but dont expect a kickboxing/muay thai match from him anytime soon

I may go out on a limb by saying this, but GSP, much like Machida is more about a complete fight. Sometimes that means playing it safe a using your main skill, for GSP its wrestling/g'n'p with some BJJ here and there. GSP will play it safe with his wrestling.


Anyone notice the only champs right now down the strike/box are Bj and Anderson?? :laugh:

So Brock is not down to strike you say? Even though he dropped Herring and Couture? Lyoto is not down to strike? Even though he ko'd Rashad and stood with Shogun for 25 minutes, and has some of the most feared striking in his division. As for GSP I feel he would gladly standup and strike if he had an opponent that it would make more sense to stand with than takedown.

But dang this did get off of topic really quick. lol

Daley is definitely on my watch list. He puts on exciting shows and he actually has quite a bit of experience. If it's a stand up fight all day Daley, but if Koschek plays it smart and goes for the constant take down then it's a toss up. But who wants to see a rematch of Koschek and GSP.

If GSP fought Ricardo Almedia and used his wrestling to keep the fight standing and pick Almedia apart would people complain about him "playing it safe"? Seriously fighting to your opponents weakness is smart game planning but I feel like to many people are complaining because GSP has been fighting strikers and taking them down at will.

I want to see Daley go out and lay on his back in the middle of the cage and wait for Kos. I mean trying to keep it standing would be playing it safe.

rep to cc420, If GSP just wants to keep winning fights at 170 until a better athlete comes along that is fine. But I would not pay 50 cents to watch one of his fights, they are booorrriiiing. We were watching the last card and after the first round we went out and partied, an no we would NEVER pay for a GSP card. Brock, yes...Machida -yes, Silva - yes. Otherwise we watch for free. GSP can win 1,000 fights at ww and I dont care, he is waiting for BJ come come up 2 classes to fight him cause he is just plain chicken shite of AS, end of discussion. Once AS moves up GSP will gain those magical 15 lbs in 2 days, lmao. ps No more p4p that shite is just an insult .

Wow... that was a whole lot of bs. One of the best fighters in the world is a chicken shit because he hasn't gone and fought Anderson Silva yet?

In that case I'm calling Silva a chicken shit because he hasn't gone up and fought Lesnar or Fedor yet. It might make more sense for him to fight at a natural weight class but how does that matter? He needs to fight real fighters and he's too afraid to do so! You heard from me first.

Sick Burn.

Discussion should be about daley/koscheck. More interesting than another GSP debate.

If you win every round its up to them to make it a good fight. Domination is normally boring, that is a fact. Don't blame him for being tp good haha
