A pivotal lightweight match is likely headed to a yet-unannounced Strikeforce event planned for March.

Sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that K.J. Noons (11-4 MMA, 3-2 SF) and Josh Thomson (18-4 MMA, 9-2 SF) have verbally agreed to meet.

As MMAjunkie.com first reported, "Strikeforce Grand Prix Final: Barnett vs. Cormier" takes place March 3 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. The event airs live on Showtime with prelims on Showtime Extreme.

Noons rebounded from a two-fight skid with a decision victory over Billy Evangelista this past month at "Strikeforce: Melendez vs. Masvidal." The win put him one step closer to a coveted title shot against current champ Gilbert Melendez, who outpointed Jorge Masvidal in the event's headliner.

Dude this will be a freakin war and a half! Both love to stand in bang a strikers delight! Josh will try to get it taken down but noons gots decent defense so jt be forced to bang! This is possibly a good number 1 contender fight both would give war to melendez tho melendez still wins I think atleast we can get another war while he's stuck in strikeforce!

On the fence with this. Might actually go with noons

Great fight, Noons wins standing but if Thomson gets it to the ground it's over.
