In a media conference call today Noons did his best to dispel reports that he has been avoiding a rematch with Nick Diaz, who he defeated in order to claim the Elite XC lightweight title back in November.

“I’ve won a lot of titles, but winning the EliteXC title was one of the most powerful things to happen to me,’’ said Noons. “I’m just proud that I keep trying to get better and just follow my dreams.

“But I don’t dodge anybody. As a champion, you can’t duck anyone. You only have one option. You fight the best. Whoever that is, that’s who I fight. Unfortunately, Nick’s not the best now. I have to fight the top guy as the champion. Right now that guy is Yves Edwards.

“Of course, it would be great to fight Nick in the future. It would be a great payday for me. (But) Nick is such a big crybaby. Let him rebuild himself and then we’ll fight again. I’d love an easy payday.

“It’s ridiculous what Diaz’ camp was saying. Why would they think I’m dodging him? I gave him plastic surgery on his face. That’s a fact. As long as he can get a doctor’s note, (I’m all for) round two.’’

Uh-oh. You know who’s not going to like that? World-famous hothead Nick Diaz. And here it comes:


“Noons is a little (expletive) and it doesn’t even matter what I am thinking about him because we are not fighting. Noons won on a cut. He is only a paper champion. His days are numbered.’’

You know, I don't like Noons myself. But he does kind of have a point. I've heard alot of shit come out of Diaz's mouth about Noons and he's just getting tired of it. I probably would have went on a rant too. I mean you can only take so many jabs until you retaliate.

Noons said he had to have sergury because of him......He had the surgery to fix his scare tissue so he would loose to a B class fighter like yourself because of something as stupid as a cut.....Noons better hope he doesnt fight Diaz again he will get owned....

What do cuts usually mean? He was getting smashed! Nick Diaz was exposed like crazy in that fight. I don't think that KJ is a top flight fighter, and I think he'll be outclassed big time by Yves, but it showed that Nick isn't as great as all his little minions think.

Nicks lost to to many top fighters to be considered anywhere near the best. I think Nate has better prospects.

yea diaz might very well win a rematch but its not as if noons landed a lucky elbow and cut him he cut him twice and dropped him in that fight and diaz couldnt take him down he was outclassing diaz ... and he has a point he did make him get surgery i enjoyed that one made me giggle

For some reason as a fighter I would not want to give Nick Diaz a reason to be pissed off and focused when he fought me..... IMO bad chess move for KJ
