K.J. Noons and Ryan Couture put up an entertaining fight on the preliminary card of Strikeforce's final show, and while Couture came away with the win, Noons will not be shut out of the UFC.

Hope they give Kurt Holobaugh a chance too.

Glad the UFC is going to give Noons a chance that loss was BS big time.

I don't think he will go too far...he is extremely predictable and not enough of a KO artist for me to understand why he sticks to that game plan every time. I think most LW's beyond TUF would either win on thethe ground or take him out completely.

Yay! This makes me happy. I don't watch Strikeforce but I'll be happy to watch his fights in UFC. I think he'll be a good addition and I'm eager to see how he fares. :)

Have him face guillard first. Should be a great stand up war

i gotta agree. he's going to look to out box his opponent everytime, even though i think there is a lot of better boxers and WAY more well rounded fighters in the ufc's LW div. id like to see him kickbox more, and even get some wrestling or atleast good TD defense.
