Paul Daley Training With GSP, Wants Nick Diaz Rematch In UFC

“If Lorenzo (Fertitta) came to me and said, ‘What you did we can look past that. Would you like to come back to the UFC?’ I just want everyone to be clear that yeah, I’ve got nothing personal against the UFC, and I do think they are a great organization… Me and Andre Winner will be linking up with the champion himself, Georges St-Pierre, who’s a good friend of Andre Winner’s now, and I’ll be doing the last bit of prep at Tristar… I’ve spoken to a lot of people. A rematch with Nick Diaz, with the UFC’s marketing power – with FOX and everything now – I think they can market the rematch with Nick Diaz if he falls against B.J. Penn really, really well. I just want to put the idea out there.”

While on radio, British fighter, Paul Daley revealed that he is getting ready to join his UK brothers over at Tri-Star gym to train alongside GSP.

Dan Hardy took the leap to Canada last month and apparently two of his teammates, Paul Daley and Andre Winner are now following his footsteps.

The optimistic Daley is still holding onto the fact that the UFC might take him back. While Dana White has said absolutely not, never again, they did let him fight under the Strikeforce banner without too much resistance.

Could a Paul Daley vs. Nick Diaz rematch be in the future under the UFC banner?
