Dan Miragliotta - Setting the bar

Daley suckerpunches Koscheck

At UFC 113, we saw Josh Koscheck totally wipe the mat with Paul Daley. Before a lot of fights, competitors talk trash about each other. With egos as high as any professional athlete, the fight started outside of the ring between Koscheck and Daley before the fight in the ring even started.

First Daley called out Kos, who then responded by saying:

“Ok here we go, let the shit talking start. I am fighting Daley, May 1; co-main event UFC113. This kid is going 2 get what he's asking 4. XOXO”

"If Paul Daley's going to talk, is he going to come into the cage on May 8 and back it up? I can guarantee I am."

“I plan on rearranging them teeth in his mouth. He already has those braces and those messed up teeth. So maybe we'll put some railroad spikes in there."

Daley came back with some trash talking of his own:

“Heard Koscheck, talking a little...but a real man can tell his chat is just a front....I can smell his pussy from here....Bitch.”

“For my Supporters, we are also running a competition to help Josh; we can all see he is in desperate need of some advice about what to do with his Blonde 'Fro. So PHOTOSHOP PEOPLE, Wining hair style will be handed to Josh at the pre fight press conference.”

And finally, Kos finished with the following:

"Don't be afraid to talk a little bit to entice me to stand. Because I have good standup and I have a good chin. I have a lot of power. And if I put my right hand on your chin, you're going to go to sleep."

Pretty much this was a grudge match before these two fighters ever stepped into the ring. And once they did, not only did they not touch gloves, but they continued to exchange heated words during the match as well. By the end of the fight, it was obvious Josh Koscheck had won the fight – and the lead up to this fight, only to lose in the end, seemed to be a disappointment that was just too much for Daley to handle: Daley sucker-punched Koscheck for all the world to see.

Miragliotta gets Daley in an RNC To be honest, my favorite part of that whole fight, not counting Koscheck’s brilliant Oscar performance over the phantom knee kick to his head, was the performance by Dan Miragliotta.

Who in their right mind, with Miragliotta as the ring ref, is dumb enough to throw their opponent a sucker-punch in front of him, and think Miragliotta was not going to take some sort of action? That RNC he had on Daley will no doubt cause him to think twice about ever pulling that kind of stunt again, especially consider Miragliotta’s size and background.

To read Miragliotta’s perspective, see this great article on MMA Fighting by Mike Chiappetta here.

To Daley - what were you thinking? I'm sure that was one of those "whoopsies" that you'd like to take back, but will never be able to. Next time, give your mind time to help you think it through before you act.

For his bad behavior - Dana White has fired Paul Daley from the UFC and vowed he'll never fight for them again. Maybe this will send a message to all the fighters out there (Brock Lesnar, the Diaz Brothers, Anderson Silva...) that it's time to start acting like professionals in the ring.

To Dan Miragliiotta, my hat’s off to you for a job well-done – this is what ref’ing is all about!
