If. Josh Koscheck and Paul Daley are now expected to meet at UFC 113...but it's a big "if" right now. Whether or not this really happens will depend on Kos's health, as an undisclosed injury that caused his fight with Paulo Thiago at 109 to be scrapped could hold up contracts being signed.

I was hoping this would happen at 111, but I'm happy to see it regardless.

I wonder if Kos is going to be content to stand and trade with Daley.

So could we possibly see Hardy vs Daley, if daley beats kos and hardy beats GSP?

Did Daley say he would be willing to challenge Dan Hardy for the title? I know they both come from the same camp, but I would not be surprised to see either willing to engage in order to get atop the welterweight heap.

I think Koscheck will expose Daley.

I think Daley has worked and is going to be working on his ground game. On ESPN Live he talked about how we are going to be surprised at how well his wrestling/ground game is. He also said HE WANTED someone to take him to the ground so he can showcase it but all his opponents have wanted to stand up.

I think about how his training would be for his last opponents that were known for their submission game and I can't help but think that his ground game is there.

Now, how ready is he going to be to face a strong wrestler like Koscheck?

I think this is going to be a better fight than Rumble/Kos.

me2, think kos will get drawn in2 a stand up brawl, then its only a matter of time before daley lands flush, and as wev seen not many ppl can keep goin after that happens! i see it as a 1st round KO!

as much as i would love to see daley knock that fraggle haired fellow out for an extended period of time (and in montreal), i can't see kos wanting to stand for very long with the heavy handed brit. i see kos grinding out a decision on take downs and ground control or by late submission.

He said that before the Shields fight too.
