Strikeforce is in Columbus and is ready to smack us upside the head from the opening bout with MiddleEasy Monster™ clad Conor Heun to the main event between Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey. Snuggled somewhere in the middle of this fabulous card is Paul Daley, making his return to the Strikeforce cage for the first time since he was out pointed by Tyron Woodley at the Hendo/Fedor (Hendor) fight.
Tonight Daley takes on Kazuo Misaki who will be making his maiden voyage at 170. Although Daley knows Misaki is a tough customer, he’s more concerned with moving past the Japanese legend however he can so he can get his Strikeforce title shot against ‘Real fighter’ Nate Marquardt or (the option he clearly doesn’t want) ‘Snooze Fest’ Tyron Woodley. Here’s the interview from MMAWeekly.
