Paul Daley’s UFC 113 Blog – Part III
"It kind of annoys me that people keep asking me if my takedown defense has improved since fighting Jake Shields two years ago. Of course it has. I lost a fight, so of course I want to improve; I always want to get better. On the night against Shields I was pretty bad; I don’t even like talking about it. That wasn’t really me at my best, and I am still mad about it, but I moved on and I’ve worked hard to improve."
"What annoys me is that people aren’t giving me credit for stuffing some of Shields’ takedowns. I stuffed a lot more than Dan Henderson, the Olympic wrestler, did but I get no credit for that. Shields took Henderson down at will for five rounds and kept him there. I at least stuffed some of them, and I am a welterweight while Henderson has trained in this for years and is a light heavyweight."
"On Saturday, all I am going for is another win. I will leave the Octagon with another KO win under my belt, and Kos will leave with his teeth in a bag."
