This is a rematch i've been looking forward to for a long time. Can't wait.
The Question is , will KJ be able to KO diaz?
Diaz has never been finish , not in the UFC , not in EliteXc, not in Pride or Strikeforce!
if Kj could finish him that would be huge !
on the other hand Diaz has got hands too , he may not Ko people with 1 punch, but hes punches are like beer everytime it hits one, make them more dizzy until they practically fall down on its own.
Sf ****ed up again, they should hve made miller vs diaz and noons vs melendez, those fights would hve been so much better
That does need to happen. Perhaps after the Noons/Diaz bout, then
Noons can fight Melendez and Miller can fight Diaz, although Diaz will have to go up in weight for that one. Miller is 185, Diaz 170.
Those are definitely two bouts I think Strikeforce has to make happen. I'm sure Melendez is foaming at the bit on that one.
I guess you didn't watch the video. They stopped their first fight because of cuts. That's a stoppage any way you look at it, so yes Diaz has been finished (he was KO'd early in his career too). KJ Noons has some of the best hands in MMA as a pro boxer, but if the fight goes to the ground he will be in serious trouble.
It's a finish but it's not a finish.... I think he meant KO or sub or something like that.
hey nick, dont be scared homie! haha 1-0 to mayhem i reckon...
Let me tell you something about this Koons kid. He is the typical jock brat type child, raised by a mommy and daddy putting all their eggs in the basket sending him to every top notch camp, tourament ect. in hope that THEY hit the big pay day in the future. We all see it now-a-days. Those over the top parents screaming at little league and high school sporting events, getting WAY too involved with what should be a happy, fun time. just look at this kids daddy in the after fighter of Diaz vs Koons 1.
Koons just has the look of not belonging in MMA ( at least in my opinion). He just has this look of "snot-boy" written all over him. It didn't help with my opinion of him when he started ragging on "ground fighters that you typically see in the UFC"...or whatever his exact words were, and stating how they are real fighters ect.
Diaz will f*ck this lil brat up but good!
Where you from? Stockton... hahahah
wtf with your post?? people should fight because they like it, the background of the fighter doesnt have anything to do with that?? i used to like nick diaz a lot but all of his street reaised shit and all the hommie shit is not cool any more. noons is a real fighter and doesnt have t be talking shit of everybody, **** nick diaz. and **** you too
I like BJJ but let's face it.. there's nothing like a good stand-up war.
Noons said he doesn't know who you are. SO where'd you get all this inside info?
I like both and I can see what you are talking about capjo but Noons is still a good fighter. You got to respect his willingness to stand and bang which is something that is slowly dying off in MMA. I was hoping he would get that shot at Gil before this rematch but oh well. This will be a good fight too. Oh... and I would have to go for Nick of course haha.
I don't like nick much and KJ's last performance was not very appropriate. I do however believe that in their first fight KJ was well on his way to destroying Nick. Nick didn't really have anything for KJ's speed and accuracy. If it goes to the ground I feel it will be very bad for KJ. I still pick KJ to win but I can't be certain.
What did you not like about KJ's last performance? Think he was dirty?
I think he was a little bit. But as I state I only am complaining about his last one. He is a great fighter and I see him beating Diaz.
Somebody is going to sleep...
And his name is Nick Diaz =]
LOL at Nick saying don't be scared after getting tossed.
He will DB. He will.
i think he meant tossed as in "getting his salad tossed" in the cage
Haha I hope not. If they go to north south position I'm turning the channel.
if diaz doesnt fight like gurgel and fights smart no doubt he can get the win
Well, the original fight, he didn't fight like Gurgel. He fought like Nick Diaz and Noons beat him badly. Bad enough that Noons' fists made cuts on his face. Cuts enough that the ref and doc had to stop the fight. This is a few years later, so it'll be more competitive this time, but I don't know... Noons had his number the first time.
This one is going to be an epic battle I can see this fight getting a rematch in the future to become a trilogy... this fight and Huerta vs Alvares are goign to be great fight, I can´t wait...
Let's see, who do I dislike the least? I'll have to go with Diaz on this one given Noons' dishonest behavior of late.
Actually, that knee at the end: it didn't hit his face. It appeared that way, but it missed his face completely. Got him on the chest (right arm)
Good move by Strikeforce, thankfully.
This is going to be a good one, but I'm rooting for Nick though. " don't be scared homie "
mayhem gonna wait his turn. Don't be scare homie!
check this out guys, **** the diaz brothers yeah just like that, am not gonna say that they dont have talent cause they do they can fight but they are a bunch of shit talking machines and i just hate fighters that talk shit (except sonnen) now diaz was gonna lose that fight even if it went 5 round he could not see shit and all his takedowns were getting stoped it was just a bad night for him, now he has the reach advatage on noons but thats about it i think noons has evolved in the sport quite enough to where diaz is not gonna be able to stop him, but i am exited about this fight i jus hope it goes longer and diaz takes more punishment.
No matter of the outcome of this fight, but in the last fight, Noons took Diaz to school and that's a fact! I hope history repeats itself, except this time, Diaz would be Knocked The F.. Out. The guy has a brain of an ape anyway, he won't miss a few brain cells.
that is an awsome fight
and history will repeat itself
The real question, is nick afraid to fight mayham he says that mayham needs to drop weight but he fought shamrok at 180, so way not mayham. answer he is a scared little gang banging punk.
