Betting Preview: Strikeforce Diaz vs. Daley

It was only 11 months ago that Dana White said that Paul Daley would never fight for the UFC again, no matter how many titles he may win.

UFC Live 3 Betting Results

Diego Sanchez’s nightmare is over, and now the dream begins. With UFC relevance on the line for Sanchez at UFC Live 3, the former Ultimate Fighter winner put on a heroic display of heart against Martin Kampmann to get a unanimous decision victory and pay out underdog odds of +130.

The fight didn’t start out so well for Sanchez, who endured many blows to the face in the first round. But his pace eventually slowed down Kampmann enough to win the last two rounds of the fight. Sanchez continued to move forward regardless of the shots he was taking and beat his opponent with sheer will.
