The war in Afghanistan can end by handing Paul Daley a one-way ticket to Kabul. I’m on the Paul Daley bandwagon. The guy had me at the moment when he KOd Martin Kampmann while he was still on his feet. Dude didn’t even have time to drop to the ground, Daley sort of juggled his body in the air like some elaborate Killer Instinct combo. Best of all, he did it in the same city that killed JFK. Screw them and their second gunman, Paul Daley assassinated The Hitman at UFC 103 without a single-bullet theory.
As if Paul Daley really needed a method to improve on his striking, he’s now training in Holland at Mike’s Gym, home of Melvin Manhoef and Badr Hari for his upcoming December 4th fight against Scott Smith. MMAPundit interviewed Paul Daley to see why he chose to go to the gym that houses the fighter with the highest KO ratio in MMA.
“Well, back in the early cage rage days, I fought Joey van Wanrooij who was from Mikes Gym at the time. He put up such a good fight, we became friends at the after party and stayed in touch. I then started following a lot of Melvin’s [Manhoef] fights and we became friends.
Mike wrapped my hands for a fight at the old Cage Rage and we became good mates from then, we stayed good friends and I asked if I could come over to Holland and he was like no problem. They looked after me really well, didn’t charge me, and fed me, so for that past 3 or 4 years I’ve been going over there.”
Everyone should call up their friend that says he will take a punch from Mike Tyson for $1,000,000, sit them down on your sofa and explain to him how it’s a really, really bad idea. If you had any doubts on the torque of Paul Daley’s punch but never wanted to stand in front of his fists, it’s cool. Get your friend to do it, the same guy who claims they would take a punch from Tyson for money. After he lands on the floor, he won’t remember the bet. Trust me, it will work. [Source]
