When Nick Diaz And Paul Daley Fought The Greatest Round In MMA History

The insane round between Nick Diaz and Paul Daley will go down in MMA history as the best round of all time.

Diaz vs. Daley topped a Strikeforce card back in 2011 and the welterweight title bout lived up to its billing, with the pair of fighters putting on an epic slug-fest.

Both men hit the canvas as the Stockton slugger stopped the British knockout artist late in the first round to defend his Strikeforce welterweight belt.

Diaz survived an early scare after Daley rocked him in the opening exchange. Daley unloaded and threw a bunch of haymakers before throwing a wild kick.

The American got back to his feet but continued to eat punches. Though he landed his own blows moments later as he backed Daley against the cage.

Diaz fired away, alternating head and body shots to devastating effect. He then viciously rocked Daley's head back with a straight right-hand before throwing some nasty elbows.

But the challenger fought back and dropped Diaz with a thunderous left-hook which sent the champion sprawling to the canvas.

Diaz recovered and finished Daley on the ground with a brutal assault.

'Big' John McCarthy pulled Diaz away from Daley and halted the contest with just three seconds left on the clock.

What a round. What a fight.
