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.”Read the rest of the article »
