Dana White was as enthralled as everyone else during the one round slugfest between Nick Diaz and Paul Daley on Saturday night.  The fight was a great see-saw battle that saw both men hurt.  Near the end of the round, however, it was Diaz who knocked down Daley and finished him with a barrage on punches on the ground.

Daley was booted from the UFC by Dana last year after his infamous sucker punch of Josh Koscheck at UFC 113.  And Dana made it clear before the Diaz fight that he was rooting for the 209 and Nick Diaz.

Still, after the fight, the Baldfather was glowing in his Twitter post when he wrote about Daley:

 

I give him all the respect in the world for that fight. They went to war!

Will that be enough to get Daley back into the UFC?  I have my doubts about that, but it's a good start.  Never say never!

Here's a post fight interview with Daley from Fight Hub.
