Paul Daley's UFC 113 Blog - Part II

By Paul Daley - I’m packing my gear and ready to fly out of England. In case you haven’t heard, it is Fraggle Hunting Season in Canada, and I’ve packed a ton of Semtex in my suitcase to blow that critter away. Some people think it is cruel to hunt Fraggles - and they are on the endangered species list - but like rats they are actually vermin with weird dirty hair and they have to be exterminated before they breed.

I’m packing my gear and ready to fly out of England. In case you haven’t heard, it is Fraggle Hunting Season in Canada, and I’ve packed a ton of Semtex in my suitcase to blow that critter away. Some people think it is cruel to hunt Fraggles - and they are on the endangered species list - but like rats they are actually vermin with weird dirty hair and they have to be exterminated before they breed.

The Fraggle and I did a conference call with the media together last week, and we got into a bit of ‘he said/she said’ over how the fight happened. Bit embarrassing, really. Truth is, Koscheck’s manager called me out to Joe Silva, and I accepted. That’s cool, I am happy to fight a top contender, that’s what I am all about. No big deal.

I know Koscheck is afraid of me. I know he is. Kos was actually in my training room for my first UFC fight against Martin Kampmann, making a load of noise. He’s a major irritant to everyone around him and everyone just wanted him to leave.

After I thumped Kampmann, he went totally quiet around me. I knew then he was scared. I also tried to say “Hi” to him backstage after I knocked out Dustin Hazelett at UFC 108, but he pretended he didn’t see me. Again, I could tell he would rather have a root canal done than be around me. I just laughed to myself.

His attitude just sucks. I can talk some crap, yeah, but most the time it is just to give the fans – and myself – something to laugh at. I don’t take myself too seriously. My teammates at the Rough House - Dan Hardy, Ross Pearson, Andre Winner and all the boys - we make fun of each other all day long. Some days it is Dan’s turn to get it in the neck; sometimes it is my turn to get the abuse. It’s funny, it is cool and you learn not to take yourself too seriously.

Kos is the kind of guy who thinks he’s a superstar and expects to be the centre of attention. How many times did he talk about himself in the third person in his blog?

On the media call, Koscheck said he hasn’t seen any of the forums where the fans – British, American, Canadian, Australian, whatever – have been photoshopping him and ripping him. He said he doesn’t read the internet, and doesn’t read newspapers either.

What was the point of geeking it up at university if he didn’t even learn to read? Or is it really like it is in the movies, where if you are a good athlete they get the treasurer of the Star Trek Club to do your homework for you?

One club Kos was clearly a member of at college was the Drama club. Did you see his performance v Anthony Johnson? Kos should be the one getting into acting, not Rampage. His acting like a mortally injured fighter against Johnson was Oscar winning stuff.

Way better than his early work on ‘Fraggle Rock’.

I just hope the referee doesn’t fall for his ‘I’ve been poked in the eye and taken an illegal knee’ BS once I rock him. And I will rock him with my first shot. I will walk through a thousand of his right hands which he throws from his behind his arse, land one and say goodnight.

I’m looking for a clean, nice, sharp KO.

And after I knock him out, all of you are invited to my after party and, if you get my meaning, we can all ‘Dance our cares away, worries for another day, and let the music play!’
