Mark Daley Beats Scott Smith

Mark Daley Beats Scott Smith - Nottingham's Paul Daley scored a devastating first-round knockout over Scott Smith on the Strikeforce show at the Scottrade Center in St Louis.

Daley opened up with kicks and punches. He then found his range with a one-two combination and landed a right hand that put Smith down.

The fight went to ground before a dazed Smith got back to his feet.

Daley didn't dive in but used his jab and waited for another opening. He didn't have to wait long as Smith walked on to a stunning left hook and crashed down to the canvas unconscious. It was all over at the 2:09 mark.


Daley was also the star of the post-fight press conference.

"Coming into the fight, I was a little worried about Scott's power," said Daley. "He's a nice guy, he's a great fighter and I had to be cautious. He's been in a few Rocky moments, but this ain't no movie.

"I hit him to stay hit. 'Semtex' is for real."

Confident Daley already knows who he wants to fight next.

"I want KJ Noons," he said. "Let's sign on the dotted line. Let's get this fight done.

"Next is Nick Diaz. I ain't messing around. I'm here to be the champion and I'm going to be the champion."

Daley improves his record to 26-9-2, while Smith drops to 17-8 with one NC.

Daley didn't mind that his knockout came too late to be included in consideration for the World MMA Awards, in Las Vegas.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
