Winner Paul Daley jokes about the his funny fighting antics when interviewed after Shark Fights 13.

Definitely, wrestling cost so much for Paul Daley. A title shot with UFC champ Georges St-Pierre, coaching stint on TUF 12, a win over Josh Korscheck and his UFC contract. Daley, a hard-hitting fighter with with 18 KO’s over 25 career wins, likes to keep fights standing. Earlier of 2010, Koscheck used multiple takedowns to defeat Daley via unanimous decision in UFC 113.

Frustrated, Daley threw a post-fight punch on Koscheck which cost him his UFC career.Even now, UFC President Dana White said that Daley is not welcome to UFC.

Last Saturday, Masvidal used heavy takedowns to turn down Daley and the latter used a weapon unexpected by many – a takedown of his own.
He admit being impressed with the American Top Team staple.

“He’s a tough guy,” said Daley, who surrendered 10 percent of his “show” money to Masvidal after missing weight by less than a pound. “Me and my team knew he was a tough guy. He’s got a lot of experience and comes from a great team. I just want to thank him for stepping up and taking the fight and making it a fight. Maybe I entered the fight thinking no [155-pounder] was going to be able to take my punches, but he took them. He put on a good fight. He had a great gameplan, and he made me work for the win. It was a close fight.”

Houston “The Assassin” Alexander (11-6) seem primed to provide the nation with entertaining videos. Unfortunately, in five of his six fights the clips involved someone else whose hand is raised at the end of the coil. But he refused to quit, even if it’s his last option. After the struggle he claimed victory over UFC veteran Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou.

“My kids, I always tell those guys never give up,” Alexander said following the win. “I proved that you never give up. Never give up. I think it was a flash (knockdown), I really didn’t see it coming because I was trying to get position. Apparently, he got to the position before I did.It was a flash, but the conditioning got me through it, and I ended up getting on top of him the last part of the round.”
