K.J. Noons stripped of EliteXC lightweight title

EliteXC announced late Friday that K.J. Noons has been stripped of the promotion’s lightweight title. The company is citing Noons’ refusal to defend the title against Nick Diaz during CBS and EliteXC’s upcoming “Saturday Night Fights” show on Oct. 4 as the reason behind the decision.

“We are stripping K.J. of his championship belt for refusing to defend against Diaz,’’ EliteXC Head of Fight Operations Jeremy Lappen said in a statement.

“It’s a very unfortunate situation but we cannot have belt-holders who refuse to fight the top contenders. We want champions who will fight anyone, anytime, anyplace. That’s the mentality all champions should have.

“I feel very bad for K.J. because I like him a lot on a personal level and have always thought he could be a big star. He’s charismatic, has a very exciting fighting style and is a top level fighter. So I’m obviously disappointed that he has chosen to take this stance.

“I don’t understand why he would turn down a chance to be a headliner on CBS on Oct. 4. K.J. then turned down the fight again when we offered him a headlining spot on our next SHOWTIME date against Nick. From my view, it is a fight against a top-named opponent in Diaz (someone who beat the No. 1 fighter in the world in his weight class), a fighter K.J. has bad blood with and most definitely a fight the fans really wanted to see. It seemed like a great opportunity for K.J. to me.

“Personally, I do not think it was a smart career move, but I’m sure he sees it differently. K.J. has two more fights remaining on his contract, so we are still looking forward to having him fight for us again soon, but not as our world champion.’’

Noons originally won the then-vacant title when he upset Diaz during the promotion’s “Renegade” event last November 10 in Corpus Christi, Texas. After dominating Diaz in the standup portion of the fight and causing three lacerations to Diaz’s face, a doctor called a stop to the fight following round 1, declaring Noons the winner.

Diaz, who had been heavily favored to win the fight, stormed out of the main arena in protest and disputed the decision. The outcome of the fight was a source of bad blood between the Diaz and Noons camp and verbal barbs were exchanged via the media.

The bad blood manifested during the promotion’s June 14 “Return of the King” event in Hawaii following Noons’ first successful defense of the title against Yves Edwards. At the invitation of EliteXC officials, Diaz entered the cage during Noons’ post-fight interview and began to verbally antagonize the then-champion. The verbal exchange escalated to the point that Noons’ father, Karl Noons, a former professional kickboxer, lunged at the Diaz camp. A a melee between the two parties then ensued.

After Diaz put together a three fight win streak following the loss to Noons, the promotion made several attempts to capitalize on the grudge feud but could never secure a bout agreement from Noons, as both he and his manager, Mark Dion, disputed EliteXC’s assertion that Diaz was the number one contender to the title.  The Noons camp stated it felt that Eddie Alvarez, based on his undefeated streak in DREAM’s lightweight Grand Prix deserved to be the rightful top contender. However, Alvarez was recently married and was unavailable for the Oct. 4 date.

Noons would also later reveal that he was unhappy with the company over salary issues and his belief that EliteXC officials had reneged on promises to promote his professional boxing career.

Friday’s announcement stated that a fight to determine the winner of the vacant title would be determined in the near future. Opponents and a date were not given, however, sources informed FiveOuncesOfPain.com earlier this week that one option on the table is a headlining match between Diaz and Alvarez for the lightweight title to be held on a tentative Nov. 8 show.

    About Damn time! This was a long time comin!

  • tallsforeverybody says:

    who cares.

  • Truth says:

    Good.

    Although Noons seems to have some legitimate gripes against EXC. None of them gave him a valid reason to turn down a rematch with Diaz.

    Alvarez/Diaz will be an interesting match if that’s what’s up next.

  • Makea says:

    Press release issued at the of the day on a Friday? EXC is playing this soft; negotiations with Showtime starting to get serious?

  • jdavis says:

    Hope Noons enjoys boxing because he has really made a mess of his MMA career. I can’t see any other major organizations paying him any more money that EliteXC was and I doubt many would even care about signing him at all. Yea he might of had a few gripes about EliteXC but trashing your own career probably wasn’t the best way of dealing with those issues.

  • I join the “good” people.

  • Joseph says:

    WOW!

    No one is talking about how INCREDIBLE an Eddie Alvarez vs Nick Diaz fight would be! That fight would be INSANE!!!

  • HexRei says:

    good. i think noons really is afraid that nick could win their rematch, so this is dead-on. let him go be a nobody in boxing.

  • HexRei says:

    uh… so why isn’t my “gravatar” showing up?

  • hindsightufuk says:

    whatever, i jus wanna see nick diaz fight again

  • Sergio Hernandez says:

    Nice Casshern av, Hex.

    And it’s about time this happened. It was pretty obvious Noons wasn’t going to fight Diaz for whatever reason.

  • Davey D says:

    It is too bad it has to be this way but KJ had to expect this. You can’t determine who you want to fight, unless you have that clout and he clearly doesn’t. The rematch had a lot of people interested in it so when KJ balks at it in the way he has. Basically telling EXC how to run their show.

    I think this whole bit goes to show Noons just isn’t committed to MMA one-hundred percentnow, he is out and Diaz vs. Alvarez is expected to follow. That would be fireworks! Lastly, maybe Affliction/GB is where KJ needs to be after all?

  • slow17motion says:

    Bullshit. Noons blasted Diaz in their first bout. Elite XC was going to pay Diaz, the challenger, 3 times the amount that they were going to pay KJ. KJ thought that it was unfair, so he refused the fight. Between Diaz’s disrespect, Elite XC allowing him to come down to the ring after Noons’s victory (another example of Elite XC’s WWE-esque style of MMA), not giving Noons a fair purse, AND refusing to promote Noons–why the hell would he bother with the rematch? Simply to silence little morons like the lot of you?

    And for future reference, why is anyone here taking Elite XC’s little press release seriously? They’re the worst of the worst when it comes to MMA.

  • Davey D says:

    slow17, if your Boss asked you to do a task that fit’s your job description, do you answer the call? If you want to get paid and are able show your Employer why they should keep your services. The simple answer is: Yes…not No.

    In the case of KJ Noons. He was unwilling to complete a task set forth by his current Employer. Which was to fight Nick Diaz. Yes or No?

    EXC could very well not last through 2009. Noons and Dion did no favors by refusing this bout. That fight would’ve been an excellent addition to the Heat card and they failed to accept the task at hand. Contracted earning’s and personal feelings aside, they failed. Now KJ can deal with the consenquences like a man and do something about it or purse his goal of becoming a Champion boxer. I’m sure he is cool with it.

  • Ryan says:

    If they promised to give the guy some boxing fights, they should make good on that promise. That’s a lame move on elite XC’s behalf…pretty sure Dana wouldn’t mind seeing Noons beat on the other Diaz.

  • jdavis says:

    slow17motion;

    KJ Noons got paid more than the vast majority of fighters with 9 fights, him having the belt was irrelevant to the fact that he’s basically a unknown draw(something that could of been helped greatly by fighting on network tv). Just because Nick Diaz isn’t a very likable guy doesn’t mean that he hasn’t worked to get to the earning level he is at both in notable wins and public notoriety, the casual mma fan has no idea at all who KJ Noons is. Did he honestly think holding a EliteXC belt actually made him some kind of MMA star?

    As far as refusing the fight, EliteXC decided that Diaz was the next guy to get a title shot, champions (or their managers) don’t get to decide who gets title shots and that is all there is to that. Nick Diaz going in the ring isn’t really anything “WWE” for that matter either, it’s extremely common in MMA and has been for a long time, just because both sides showed their asses during it isn’t EliteXC’s fault. Noons was promoted pretty good too, heck he was given a PPV that was named after him, how often do you see that happen for a fighter with fewer than 10 fights? He had two chances to fight on National network tv and then offered a chance to headline another Showtime show, a lot of fighters would kill for those kinds of opportunities this early in their careers.

    Of course what it all comes down to is that it doesn’t matter what the issues were, trashing your career isn’t a very good way of dealing with your problems. Now he’s stuck in a contract he signed, sitting on his butt, not getting paid anything, not going to get promoted at all anymore and doesn’t even have a belt. For a guy with 9 professional fights that’s manager has already burned his bridge with the UFC it just doesn’t seem to be a very good idea to burn your bridge with EliteXC too.

  • Loco541 says:

    well i guess thats what noon gets for being a whiney sissy. He expects 2 get pampered for crying out loud! He deserves being striped and if he was a true champ he would defend his belt against anyone they throw in front of him. And Alvarez and Diaz would be sick to replace it!!!

  • Neil says:

    Wow. I didn’t really think that EliteXC would go this far, but I guess it shouldn’t be too suprising. They seem to love molding their organization around particular fighters (ie making weight, feeding them fights), and to see them go this far to get Diaz that belt was probably a given. Now the question in my mind is what can will they feed Diaz so that they can hand him the gold.

  • chris says:

    I think KJ disrespected EliteXC, the MMA community, and his fans. He had his chance to act like a champion and instead he cried like a baby. EliteXC should hold his contract over his head till it expires with no more fights. He doesn’t deserve to fight again.

  • jdavis says:

    Ryan;

    Noons boxing contract was with Gary Shaw promotions not EliteXC. EliteXC is having a hard enough time promoting MMA right now why would they have anything at all to do with promoting boxing?

    As far as Dana White goes does anyone see him ever sitting down with Mark Dion again to discuss a fighter contract? As long as KJ Noons has Mark Dion has his manager I can’t see the UFC even giving him the time of day. Of course I can’t see where the UFC would offer him more money even if they did, he’s a guy with 9 fights, the vast majority against unknowns and a bad loss to Krazy Horse Bennett. 20k+ a fight is pretty good money for a fighter at that level in his career.

  • slow17motion says:

    Okay, so if Diaz going into the ring isn’t “WWE-esque” then why doesn’t it ever happen anymore in the UFC? Why don’t we ever see any Murray/Lindland moments in any of the upcoming orgs aside from Elite? Hmmm… Maybe because you are full of crap. Elite XC is a gimmicky org that gets off on these kinds of confrontations. Just look at their biggest draw, Kimbo, and how they went to extreme measures to protect him against Thompson–and now they’re pitting him against Shamrock who hasn’t won a fight in YEARS. It’s pure silliness.

    And since when is jumping ship from Elite XC trashing your career? I mean, it’s not like it’s the number one organization out there. It’s not like boxing doesn’t wield bigger purses than MMA, if you are skilled enough to get to the top (and don’t get me wrong, I don’t even like boxing). You people are so full of it, swinging on Diaz’s nuts.

    And Davey, your metaphor is for crap. It wasn’t like Elite XC was sweetly asking KJ to fight because it was his job. They were shoving Diaz down his throat and offering him 1/3 of what they were paying the CHALLENGER. It’s not like KJ didn’t totally outclass Diaz in their last match. It’s not like KJ wasn’t willing to fight at all. Elite XC proclaimed that Diaz was the number 1 contender because they liked the idea of a grudge match between these two guys as it would sell PPV’s.

    And KJ might not be a big draw, but Diaz isn’t exactly a goldmine. Reality check time fellas.

  • screwface says:

    diaz was never outclassed by noons, it was a controversial stoppage that handed noons the belt. a real man and a true warrior would jump at the chance to prove to the world that he deserved that belt and would fight diaz again in a heartbeat; if he was truly confident he didnt just get lucky with a bad call. noons is a pussy plain and simple and now hes forever branded a coward and a problem fighter that no organization would want for fear of history repeating. gj noons, maybe u can get a job bouncing at the local teen club on weekends, cuz your career is over.

  • Rich S. says:

    probably the single greatest news in MMA history..
    no lie..
    i hate KJ..

  • Davey D says:

    slow17motion, I think we can conclude you are quite fond of KJ Noons and haven’t paid much attention to MMA over the last 15 years outside of the UFC. You also have no idea on how the art of promotion works.
    Noons declined a rematch with Diaz more than once. EXC needed him and he has avoided the situation. He signed a contract agreeing THEN to his current salary and clearly isn’t holding up his end of the deal. What is he worth to you?

    Face offs during live event’s happen in MMA all the time. It happens in Japan a lot and was a huge part of Pride FC’s formula for future event’s. They were good at it and the crowd ate it up. It may not happen often in the UFC but it does. EXC isn’t that good at it yet.

    Did you forget the Hendo/Page’ bit after Chuck got ko’d, Chuck/Wand in 2006, Hughes/Gracie or Tito/Shamrock? They have to worry about timing issues on air so when certain situations present themselves the UFC can showcase it to the public however they damn well please. If you don’t like it close your eye’s.

  • HexRei says:

    thanks sergio :)

  • Robert says:

    I don’t understand all the KJ Noons hate there must be more to this story than the public knows about why would he refuse a rematch with Diaz for no good reason when he already tore him up the first fight.For people excited for a Alvarez and Diaz fight one with Alvarez and Noons would have been much better.If the Alvarez vs. Diaz fight happens and stays standing it will end quickly.

  • big boy says:

    Absolutely minor-league by EliteXC. They backed themselves into a corner with baby boy Shaw running his mouth very publicly. But think about it, they stripped a champion about 3 months after his last defense. 3 months! That is ridiculous. And if they are willing to put Alvarez on the November card, why weren’t they willing to give their former champ the bout he wanted against Eddie? Noons is correct, Alvarez is much a higher-rated fighter than Diaz and a victory over him would do much more to bolster Noons’ career than a Diaz repeat.

    Simply put, EliteXC is doing whatever they can to push Diaz in the best WWE/Pride way. Sad.

  • HexRei says:

    big boy, they wanted him to give Diaz a rematch, and that’s that. it’s really not his call to make. and since it was a cut loss that is not unreasonable. the length of time elapsed before stripping him is irrelevant because its not like he said “ill fight him in six months”, he said he WOULDNT fight him as his next fight, period. I think the UFC would do the same thing if their champion refused to fight the person Joe Silva wanted him to fight.

    Imagine if Vitor Belfort had refused to give Randy a rematch (and for each, the fights were back to back) after Randy’s cut loss. They would have thrown his ass out the door. Tito is the only UFC fighter who really tried to pull that shit in the UFC and look where his career is now.

  • slow17motion says:

    Nothing that happened during any UFC event has been quite as disrespectful as the Diaz thing. I’ve probably forgotten more about MMA than you know, Davey D, as I’ve watched just about every organization, small to large, over the past 15 years.

    There is a difference between building heat and blatantly mishandling your champ by allowing a physical confrontation between your fighter and another fighter’s dad during a post-fight celebration. Please.

    I’m not a HUGE KJ fan, I just don’t understand why everyone jumps on the Diaz bandwagon when the kid is a classic crybaby bitch.

    And by the way, KJ DID HANDLE Diaz. The decision was unfortunate, NOT controversial. Stoppages due to cuts MUST occur for the fighters’ safety. Don’t kid yourself by thinking that KJ didn’t open the cuts up and thoroughly own Diaz during their rather short confrontation.

    And BTW, the other poster is very correct about Elite XC pushing Diaz. The feud with Noons was their way of doing just that.

  • slow17motion says:

    By the way, on my first point, you do know that ELITE XC had Diaz go down to the cage right? I mean, c’mon. And I absolutely love how you grasp at straws citing events that happened years ago to prove your point that fighters occasionally throw insults after matches. No crap.

    My point is that Elite XC and Diaz orchestrated it. The Shamrock/Ortiz thing was heat of the moment, they were both there, they were both pissed off. Diaz just came outta the blue with his very original double flip off. Gimme a break.

    Noons would just bust up Diaz’s delicate face again anyway.

  • HexRei says:

    There is a difference between building heat and blatantly mishandling your champ by allowing a physical confrontation between your fighter and another fighter’s dad during a post-fight celebration. Please.

    Slowmotion, you can check for yourself that it was KJ’s dad who initiated the violence. Maybe his drunk ass should have stayed out of the ring.

  • Batman says:

    Elite xc should put together Alvarez vs Diaz just to spite Noons that would be hilarious. Bad move KJ, you dropped the ball on alot of exposure and fame. Now you don’t get exposure and you appear to be a champion who ducks opponents. Josh thomson just fought some “can” and he didn’t complain, do you think you’re better then him or something. You need to get your head straight because you aren’t in affliction or the UFC, so just fight whoever they put in front of you and prove yourself.

  • Philb says:

    Elite did the right thing. Isn’t noons manager the same guy who managed Brando Vera nearly out of the UFC forever?

  • jdavis says:

    slow17motion,

    Perhaps some of what you have forgotten about MMA is things like GSP going into the ring after a Matt Hughes fight and telling him he wasn’t impressed by his performance? Organizations send fighters in the ring for face to face interviews quite often, it’s sort of silly to blame EliteXC for both guys acting like children. Honestly do you think that EliteXC staged that sissy slapfight of a in ring brawl? It was not only a complete embarrassment for the company it was just plain sad to watch. It made both guys look childish to the point that EliteXC never even used the footage for promotion. If they were going to “stage” an in ring brawl then they would of gone all the way WWE instead of having one that looked like it belonged on a elementary school playground. Face to face interviews are common and it’s not that uncommon that they get heated but not even EliteXC would of staged something that laughably pathetic.

    As far as KJ Noons making 1/3 of what Nick Diaz makes, well of course he does. That also isn’t that uncommon in MMA, guys get paid by their drawing power not because they hold a belt in EliteXC. Heck almost everyone that has fought Chuck Liddell in the last 4 years has only made drastically less than what he’s making, you think Matt Serra was making even a third of what GSP was making when they had their rematch, when Randy challenged Tim Sylvia for the heavyweight belt Randy made $150,000 more than Tim and that’s not even counting Randy’s PPV cut. Honestly this is even more common in sports than the face to face interviews. There is nothing wrong with KJ wanting to make more money but the way you do that is to make yourself more well known, passing on two primetime network events is the exact opposite of what you should be doing if you want to increase your earnings in MMA.

    I’m not a fan of Nick Diaz at all, I don’t care for the way he acts or handles his business but honestly Nick Diaz involvement in this is completely irrelevant. KJ Noons refused to give a company sanctioned contender a title shot on multiple occasions and then tried to strong arm the company into giving him more money than his contract stated he was supposed to make(really silly considering EliteXC’s financial status). Sure he may of had some real gripes against EliteXC but he went about it the wrong way, now he doesn’t have a belt but is still stuck in a contract with EliteXC who doesn’t have to give him a fight or even allow him to fight elsewhere if they don’t want to. Heck even if he’s decided to go with boxing at his experience level it’s not like he’s going to make squat for pay either.

  • jdavis says:

    “Elite did the right thing. Isn’t noons manager the same guy who managed Brando Vera nearly out of the UFC forever?”

    yes he is

  • dpk says:

    I’m going to write what I write whenever I here fighters, football players or anyone else bitch about their pay. If you don’t like the pay, then why did you sign the contract? It is logical that KJ’s last two fights if he were champion would have been against Diaz and Alverez, and would have been on a CBS card with Carano and Kimbo in front of 3-5 million people. If he won both those fights, he would hold all the cards going into negotiations, because UFC, Dream, Affliction, and Strikeforce would all have been making serious offers. Now he is going to probably fight a couple of no names, and be a free agent, and he’ll be lucky if he is offered 20K and 20K to win.

  • Sam Caplan says:

    DPK, you’re flat out wrong with your stance and really mis-informed. There’s a huge difference between fighters and athletes from other sports. To try and form a comparison and hold them to a similar standard is weak, at best.

    A fighter assumes more risk in comparison to any other athlete in all mainstream U.S. sports but makes considerably less on average. Athletes from other sports have a union to represent them and they are granted minimum salaries in the low six-figures along with benefits. All of their training is paid for by their respective team as they train in world class facilities with an extensive coaching staff that includes trainers and team physicians. Athletes in major sports can also qualify for pensions with enough service time and because of the union, they get residual checks from all marketing and merchandise licenses that their professional league body sells.

    Fighters have none of these benefits and don’t even have health insurance. To compare athletes to football players is just plain ridiculous and it’s an argument that you clearly have not thought out because it lacks logic and merit for the reasons stated in the second paragraph. Again, there is no comparison. You’ve made the comparison before and frankly, I am sick of it.

    If they don’t like the terms then why sign the contract? Because fighting is their chosen profession — a profession you derive enjoyment from. I’m not sure if you work, but if you do, you have a right to go out and seek the best available position in your field. If you are working for a company, you likely have the right to go to your superiors and ask for better working conditions. If they do not meet your request, you likely have a right with no notice to leave and seek a position elsewhere. Because they are forced to sign contracts in order to be employed, a fighter does not have this option. But if you’re allowed to seek better work conditions, why can’t a fighter be afforded the same rights and ask to re-negotiate his or her contract?

    The only way things will get better for fighters is if they take a stand. So I have no problem if they try to maneuver and use leverage to get better compensation. They just need to be smart about it. And the way Noons went about it wasn’t smart. He should have sucked it up and beat Diaz on national TV and then gone back to the bargaining table with additional leverage and just one fight left on his contract.

    If you want to blame Noons and Mark Dion for their short-sighted strategy, I can accept that argument. But to lump them in with every other fighter out there and take issue with the fact that some fighters are trying to do better for themselves just isn’t right.

    The cost of living in this country continues to skyrocket. Citizens have the right to go to their employers and tell them that they are being compensated below their market value. Why should fighters be any different? We’re not talking about a fourth outfielder who is making $1.7 million but wants to go to arbitration because he believes he’s worth $2.4 million. We’re talking about fighters with high expenses who in most cases, are living paycheck-to-paycheck just like you and I.

    People need to wake up and realize that the life of a fighter isn’t as glamorous as it appears. When you see Chuck Liddell living it up on Spike’s “All Access,” that’s the exception to the rule in this sport.

  • kingiefella says:

    this just proves that noons is scared of diaz and is not a true champion…a true champion would defend his title against anyone anytime cuz he believes he is the best….unlike noons…shame, ….would of been a great ass kicking diaz would of gave noons….you can just see that diaz would of made noons suffer this time..guess it aint gonna happen. unless elite make noons fight diaz in one of his last 2 fights even for a non title fight…im sure diaz would fight noons for a non title fight…cuz he is a true fighter!

  • Davey D says:

    Sam, that was good. At the end of the day, I think KJ should’ve just fought Diaz and asked EXC for a pay raise afterwards, win or lose. It does bother me when a fighter talks not getting what their worth because these guy’s put their life on the line when competing. They also don’t have health benifits either so it is very tough because of the amount of trianing involved as well. Let alone the cost of it.

    Maybe KJ has thought about his choices and will fight Nick again once and for all? I hope he does because it would be a good fight and Noons could very well win again. If he were to duplicate his first fight with Diaz, the rematch could do great things for him if he is victorious. It could possibly help him earn way more money down the line. He just can’t decide who he wants to fight and not expect repercussion’s when EXC needed him most. That one fight on CBS could’ve done a lot for both KJ Noons and EXC. This discussion has been a good one all weekend. They’ve got to reslove this another way.

  • slow17motion says:

    You people are jaded if you think that Diaz has 3x the drawing power of Noons… Diaz isn’t exactly a Couture, or an Arlovski, or a Fedor. His drawing power in Elite is based solely on his grudge with Noons. Other than that, he’s never been a huge draw for any org. Sorry, you lose.

    And as far as the face-offs, you missed the point entirely. Yes, other orgs bring down fighters for a face-to-face, true, hey sometimes they even have weigh-ins! Jesus. The point is this: Elite sent Diaz in knowing it would turn into a little scuffle, because Diaz has a history of being a whiney bitch and uses ungentlemanly tactics to try and lure other fighters to his level… And if you don’t believe it, do your research, this WAS Elite’s idea.

    Lastly–why would KJ be AFRAID of Diaz? He beat him.

  • slow17motion says:

    Kingifella, this isn’t some underground fight club, this is a business where people get paid thousands of dollars. Being a champion has as much to do with good business sense as it does with fighting.

    Besides, the man has a family and a lifestyle to support. If he allows an org to walk all over him, throwing him a few dimes here and there, then he is basically selling himself for nothing.

  • HexRei says:

    slowmotion, diaz is easily the third most recognizable fighter in EXC behind Carano and Kimbo and he has far more fighting credentials than either. Noons got a GIFT in that cut win to Diaz (who had a he beaten to deserve that fight? Edson fucking Berto?) and he owed him a rematch.

    and it was noons’ drunk dad that started swinging. why is it you refuse to lay any blame on Noons? Man crush?

  • slow17motion says:

    Noons’s father was being antagonized (where did you get drunk from, he sounded pretty coherent after the fight). And, erm, it was Diaz’s camp that came down there in the first place (I love how people even love to blame KJ too, who was clearly doing nothing to make the situation worse).

    Next, Noons handled Diaz in that fight. And a cut decision is what it is. If a fighter tends to cut and bleed badly then that’s part of a fighter’s weaknesses. Diaz was by no means WINNING that fight when the ref stopped it due to a cut. Are you insane? Noons won, quit your bellyaching.

    Lastly, Diaz is by NO MEANS Elite’s biggest draw after Carano and Kimbo. Are you kidding? If he was third, he’d be a DISTANT third. Nobody I know says, “I’ve GOTTA tune into showtime. NICK DIAZ IS FIGHTING! OMFG!”

    Give it up.

    I love this. Your fanboyishness is almost amusing. You are seriously excusing KJ’s dad FOR ATTACKING SOMEONE because he was being “antagonized”? You’re the worst kind of apologist. EXC arranged the face to face confrontation, drunk dad started swinging like a moron. He should have been arrested- lucky the Diaz brothers don’t like to get the cops involved.

    Next, Noons handled Diaz in that fight. And a cut decision is what it is. If a fighter tends to cut and bleed badly then that’s part of a fighter’s weaknesses. Diaz was by no means WINNING that fight when the ref stopped it due to a cut. Are you insane? Noons won, quit your bellyaching.

    Yeah, and EXC asked him to give Diaz a rematch (OH TEH NOES!!!! UNHEARD OF! CERTAINLY THE UFC HAS NEVER HAD TWO FIGHTERS FACE EACH OTHER MORE THAN ONCE!) face it, your boy is a little bitch who was afraid of fighting Diaz again, and now he’s a little bitch without a career. Maybe you should fly out to Hawaii and give him the blowjob you so clearly want to, I bet he could use it right about now.

    Lastly, Diaz is by NO MEANS Elite’s biggest draw after Carano and Kimbo. Are you kidding? If he was third, he’d be a DISTANT third. Nobody I know says, “I’ve GOTTA tune into showtime. NICK DIAZ IS FIGHTING! OMFG!”

    So first you claim he’s not the third biggest draw, but don’t list who feel above him, then go on to basically agree with me. Ok, I’m glad we both know Diaz is the third biggest draw.

    Good times man, thanks for proving me totally right.
