After spending the past year working on his boxing career, recent Strikeforce signee and former EliteXC lightweight champion K.J. Noons is ready to concentrate solely on MMA in 2010.

Noons (7-2) discussed his plans with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) a day after Strikeforce officially announced the signing.

Noons expects to make his promotional debut on the organization's Jan. 30 card in Florida, and while not "calling him out," the Hawaiian-born fighter is certainly open to a rematch with Nick Diaz.

he said he's open to a diaz rematch down the line. so it sounds like they'll be on the same card but not against each other.

if they are on the same card then Diaz is gaurenteed to talk some crap on Noons after he fights. Nick wants that fight bad!

I think KJ needs a fight to shake off some rust. But I want to see that rematch badly.

He losses his return match to boxing and now wants to get back to MMA.

Well he's pulled off 3 straight in boxing since his last loss so thats not for nothing, but regarless if Noons gets in there with Diaz... Diaz will tear his head from his neck.

i love watching diaz fight but i don't think diaz can stand witih KJ.
just like his little brother couldn't stand w/Guillard.

Luckily both of them (diaz bros) have a great ground game so they can always go that route :)
