A welterweight bout originally planned for "Strikeforce: Miami" has materialized again for the promotion's next major event.

Multiple sources today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that onetime welterweight title challenger K.J. Noons (10-4 MMA, 2-2 SF) is targeted to meet Billy Evangelista (11-1 MMA, 7-1 SF) at "Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Masvidal," which takes place Dec. 17 at Valley View Casino Center in San Diego. The event's main card airs on Showtime while preliminary action is broadcast on HDNet.

Verbal agreements are in place for the bout, though contracts have yet to be signed. It's not yet known whether the bout will air as part of the event's main card or reside on the preliminary roster.

Noons and Evangelista both look to rebound from recent setbacks.

wow!..too much love for Noons just cuz he's a bigger name..Evangelista should win this one..more angles and different kinda strikes..his leg kicks will slows Noon's boxin style down..he also got the better chin of the two, better TD's, b.j.j..Evangelista via tko, just like how Crazy Horse did it..
