This war of words is rediculous. KJ Noons telling a company who he thinks is the #1 contender? Who cares what you think. Fight who they want you to. Be a fighter, and fight. If they want you to fight Diaz then fight him. If they want you to fight Alvarez fight him. If this is about money, he won't make any guest commentating on inside MMA. From what I have seen, nobody thinks Noons is in the right here.

i find it disgusting that Noons is ducking Diaz this much. he knows for a fact he'd lose the rematch. just like a lot of people have said already...Noons is now one of my most hated fighters.

if diaz isnt the #1 contender then idk who is that could fight as soon as diaz can. I guess kj wouldnt want to face krazy horse again because rematchs arent noons "thing"



who else would they take? if alvarez is out for a while, there aren't any lightweights worth the shot. the only other i could think of would be a cross promotion fight with josh thompson, but i don't know if strikeforce would want to do that. who else besides nick deserves it?



Josh is on a whole other level than KJ. That wouldn't even make for a good fight,
KJ isn't top ten and the last thing he should try to do is get a fight with guys like Thompson or Alvarez, as both of them would knock him back down to reality.

They're probably trying to hold out to see if Elite is going to survive.
If Elite fold's then KJ's stock is alot higher than if he get's beat first, but they can't hold out forever.

Lol i never understood "champions" ducking other fighters/contenders aint the whole point of fighter proving that you are the best plus when you hold a title you are suppose to fight anyone they put in front of you that deserve a shot. Diaz would destroy him in a rematch and KJ is aware of it as well lol

I didn't even realize that Eddie Alvarez is signed to ElieXC.

Whether KJ's management likes it or not, the organization is going to determine who KJ fights. Is this going to be an ongoing thing? KJ's management team decides who the top contenders are? He seems to be hiding behind his management.

Its just a way to try and avoid the word "duck" to try and overthrow a organization's title defense by talking down about the fighter. I hate to use an example like this, but I think Randy Couture has been ducking Noguiera with the excuse of Noguiera's losses to Fedor. Its bad for your name to do stuff like that.

They should have on every fighters contract that if they do become champ that they can't duck fights. They must fight the opponent the org gives them. Noons is why boxing is such BS now. No big names really fight each other. They just each go to their own orgs and 50 different weight divisions so they can avoid top competition and live a lie.

Noons is a joke as of now and he can try to fool the world but we all know he isnt as good as looks and he deep down knows it himself

i really dont see how many times diaz has to get in his face before he realizes that its time to fight him again. i mean rosie odonnell is tougher than kj noons as of right now.

i cant believe people call him a champion of anything and hes ducking Diaz.
