(Noons vs. Diaz I. Yeah, we’re assuming there’s going to be a II soon.)
It’s been over a year since K.J. Noons was stripped of his EliteXC title and accused of all manner of bitchassery by everyone from Nick Diaz to Jared Shaw, but he’s finally decided to sign with an MMA promotion and give this crazy sport of ours another try. Sherdog reports that Noons has signed with Strikeforce and will make his debut in either December or January.
What we really want to know, however, is how long until the Noons and Diaz clans get to go at it again. There’s some serious unfinished business there, and with Nick Diaz’s recent wins over Frank Shamrock and Scott Smith while Noons was off being a mediocre pro boxer, maybe "King Karl" can see fit to give Diaz a rematch and settle this thing once and for all, weight classes be damned. Like the prophet said, "Thou shalt not be scared, homey." Only if/when those two do get together again, maybe Strikeforce shouldn’t plan on doing it California. MMA’s Rosa Parks still isn’t ready to make nice and give up his seat just yet.
