KJ Noons vs Billy Evangelista on tap for Strikeforce: 'Miami' on Jan. 30   [View Full Version]

Noons has been out of mixed martial arts for more than a year following his retirement from the sport in late 2008 after he was stripped of his 155-pound title for refusing to accept a rematch with Nick Diaz under the terms Elite XC was offering."King Karl" felt that his previous performance against Diaz (a first round technical knockout) and his lone title defense -- a first round technical knockout victory over Yves Edwards in June of 2008 -- was enough to at least earn himself a bigger paycheck than Diaz in the rematch.

I can't believe I am going to say this, but I hope Billy Evangilista wins this fight.

Noons had and still has great hands. In retrospect, he was smart to jump off that sinking Elite XC ship. Now that he is back in MMA, he may have some rust though. I think he is better than Evangelista but lets see if he has to "think" when he's out there or if he has his whole mma fight approach intact...
