KJ Noons Unmoved By Shaw’s Criticism

KJ Noons

Strangely, it seems as if Jared Shaw’s strategy of openly insulting Elite XC lightweight champion KJ Noons in the press isn’t compelling him to play nice with the organization. Weird. Even the ultimatum — and everyone loves being issued an ultimatum — hasn’t convinced him to sign the bout agreement. So what is Noons planning to do?

According to a report from, nothing much for the time being. But it doesn’t sound as if Shaw’s remarks are helping any:

“A few things will be settled over the next few days,” Noons told “but for now we’ll just let Jared Shaw go off on his little rants and let him have his fun, this isn’t bothering me.”

“I just need a couple more days to get this stuff worked out and then I will be able to say my piece and clear my name of everything that is being said and everything that is going on.”

That doesn’t exactly sound like a man who’s eager to sign a bout agreement. That sounds more like a man looking for a way out. Apparently he isn’t moved by Shaw’s threat to make him “face public opinion.” Maybe he realized that if Jared “$kala” Shaw hasn’t been destroyed by public opinion yet, it’s not quite the all-powerful force it’s being made out to be.

Hey Nick, I guess being a lifelong prick and a bitch ass bully hasn't been treating you too well lately, huh?

Why in the world would KJ want to have anything to do with you anymore, your mouth and your attitude have closed alot of doors and it looks like this might be another one of them.

Too bad you moronish punk.

Hi, I'm the same fucktard who screwed with Brandon Vera and pretty much had him sit out for a year. I'm doing the same with KJ now! LOLMMAMANAGERSKILLS

The unknown reason is that his manager is a self serving asshat. The number 1 contender is Eddie Alvarez, but he is on vaca to get married. Dion (the asshat) won't let KJ fight a non top contender because it is apparently beneath him and that elitexc is only doing this to get eyeballs on the fight.................... WTF, elitexc is going under and needs eyeballs on their fights, if the organization dies it doesn't matter that you are still holding the belt as it means NOTHING!

This fucktard needs to get his client on broadcast tv to make himself a house hold name in order to get a better deal with a bigger organization but is too stupid to see it. He is costing himself money and helping to continue the epic failure of eliteXC while not promoting his own fighter while he has the chance. What an idiot.

i dont know why he would be scared to fight diaz he crushed diaz in their first fight and i dont see the second fight being any different, diaz has no power and slow hands and in my opinion his takedowns such, the one thing he does have is great bjj but i dont think he can take kj down and we saw what happened last time while the fight was on its feet. personally i think kj has a problem with elite xc and does not want to fight for them for some unknown reason, bring him to the ufc

He should definitely fight Nick Diaz. On a side note: If Douchy McDouche Pants Skala is going to be the mouthpeice for EXC, they are doomed!

It kinda sounds like he has an injury or something and is waiting to release that information. up. A Champion who won't fight is a pussy.

What a turd. Defend your belt and all comers, or give it up.

I think he needs to get in there and fight Diaz. I don't care about the politics. EliteXC is probably going out of business soon anyways; I just want to see good fights.

Hey KJ..if you won't fight me, how about your Mom or Dad step in to the ring with me?

Me and my bro rule!
