After an ill-fated attempt at making a rematch with Josh Koscheck, Bellator MMA welterweight Paul Daley is ready to move on.?Ive been on his Facebook page and his Dethrone [Facebook] page and called him all profanities that youd expect, Daley, who lost to Koscheck in 2010, told ESPN.com. To fight me was like a golden opportunity for him and he missed the opportunity a few times now. Im not looking to present him with another opportunity.After Koscheck withdrew from their rematch in June due to injury, Daley (38-13-2) now has his focus set on Douglas Lima (26-6). The two will meet in the main event of Saturdays Bellator 158 card at Londons O2 Arena (Spike TV, ESPN Deportes, 9 p.m. ET) with a welterweight title shot in the balance.The event has faced a multitude of changes, most notably due to the June 6 death of Kimbo Slice, who had agreed to a rematch against James Thompson in the headliner. Regarding Slice, Daley said,?Im privileged to take his place as the main event here in London.Daley, 33, enters the bout on a five-fight win streak, including a first-round knockout of Andy Uhrich in January. He said?a title shot, should he defeat Lima, was something he asked for and was agreed to with someone who has a position of power in Bellator.Lima is an opponent that I picked, said Daley. Hes the toughest guy, hes a former champion, so I am excited to get such a motivated fight against a dangerous opponent.A native of Brazil, Lima was bumped from a matchup with Chidi Njokuani at last months Bellator 156 for this bout, his first since dropping the welterweight title to Andrey Koreshkov last July via unanimous decision.The opponent switch creates what could be a high-octane bout with the potential for an explosive finish. Daley, a British kickboxer, has recorded knockouts in 28 of his 38 career wins, while Lima, 28, has finished 23 of his 26 victories. Despite the credentials, Daley says that Lima isnt on my level,?and he is very confident heading into the fight.The only thing that raises his level is that he was the former champion, said Daley. We really believe that this is going to be a fight where we do a bit of a Conor McGregor-Nate Diaz and were at the end saying, Im not surprised m-----f------.Having won nine of his last 10, including eight by stoppage, Daley is predicting hell win by knockout on Saturday. For his training camp, he has sparred with several British pro boxers and worked on his wrestling with the Polish Olympic team, taking part in what he calls mini camps to get prepared for each test. The results, he believes, will be a well-rounded fighter who is more mature inside the cage.I think hes still a little bit too sure of himself, Daley said. You may say that about me, but the way Im humbly putting it is Im just a little bit faster than he thinks. Im a little bit stronger than he thinks and my fight IQ is a little bit higher than he thinks.Daley and Koscheck met at UFC 113 in May 2010, with Koscheck winning by unanimous decision. After the final bell, Daley hit Koscheck in the face, which resulted in Daleys release from the company later that night in Montreal. But the fortunes of each fighter changed from that point, with Koscheck finishing his UFC run with a 2-6 mark and Daley amassing a 14-4 record outside of the Octagon.Koscheck, a veteran of 25 fights in the Octagon, lost his last five UFC bout and signed with Bellator last June. His debut was scheduled for January at Bellator 148 in his hometown of Fresno, California, against Matt Secor?but he pulled out with an undisclosed injury. This elevated Daley to the main event, with Semtex quickly dispatching Uhrich just two minutes in with an explosive uppercut, launching a chorus of boos from the partisan crowd.After Daley called his rival out (referring to him as Crotch Check), the rematch was set for London until Koscheck was forced to pull out once again with an undisclosed injury. Daley isnt buying it and claims he was expecting it to happen.He didnt realize I was so invested in whooping his ass, said Daley. This was a fight where I intended to put severe beats on him and I think he got that sense, and he didnt have the same motivation or the same energy and sometimes you need that.For a combatant who has 53 pro bouts, Saturday will hold a special significance for Daley. It will be his first fight in his native land in nearly two years. For someone who is normally booed loudly in America, especially where Koscheck is supported, Daley is expected to get a rousing ovation from the home crowd. He compared it to his UFC New Years card appearance in Las Vegas, a first-round knockout of Dustin Hazelett in the co-main event on UFC 108.This one could top that being that its in the UK and Im going to actually have the supporters with me, said Daley. Itll be up there [and] maybe even surpass the MGM Grand. Im really looking forward to having the home crowd on such a large scale being behind me. http://www.ravensrookiestore.com/Ravens-Crockett-Gillmore-Jersey/ .

Along with Stevens, freshman Tony Carr also had his third-straight double-digit game with 10 points.This is the type of scoring potential Penn State coach Pat Chambers envisioned when he pledged to meld young and old and chase 80-plus points per game in the preseason. To get there, the Nittany Lions (2-1) needed to overcome a 0-for-9 shooting slump in the first five minutes of the second half that saw them squander a 48-41 halftime lead.I found out a lot about my team, Chambers said.

The Nittany Lions will cap the tournament with back-to-back games this weekend and will play five times in the final 11 days of the month.MORE FROM MOOREJulian Moore led Penn State with nine rebounds and had the type of game Chambers hoped he would have earlier. But foul trouble in the first two games limited Moores minutes. He played 20 against the Antelopes.HURT LIONSGuard Josh Reaves missed his third game with a lower leg injury and hes not expected to play this weekend. Forward Davis Zemgulis missed his first game with a concussion and Isaiah Washington also sat out for Penn State with an unspecified ailment.THE BIG PICTUREGrand Canyon: The Antelopes are 0 for 6 against Power 5 teams and have been outscored 550-365 since they joined the Division I ranks.Penn State: The Nittany Lions have never began a season with three freshmen starters in three straight games as they have with Stevens, Watkins and Tony Carr this year.
