Strikeforcee continues to cement their place as MMA’s number 2 organization with another signing. This time they sign former EliteXC lightweight champio K.J. Noons. Noons gained fame with his victory over Nick Diaz in the EliteXC promotion.
Noons elected to move from MMA and switch to boxing, but it now appears Noons will head back to MMA. Reports are that Noons could debut as early as December 19th, but is more likely for Jan. 30th. Noons could be a solid contender for guys like Josh Thomson and Gilbert Melendez. If you add to that the possibility of Japanese lightweights like Aoki, Ishida, and Kawajiri fighting for the promotion that adds a decent division.
