Look for Nick Diaz vs A No Name, Not Ranked, Hasbeen or Neverwas, for the EliteXC LW Title.

I'm actually looking forward to Diaz/Edwards really.
But of course, this is EXC.

ha ha ha
noons was always a ***.
when you're a nobody fighting for a wannabe org what made him think he can nitpick opponents?
hopefully ufc picks him up. b.j. penn ran out of 155 opponents. :)
penn by armbar.

Diaz- Eddie Alvarez?
Horrendous mismanagement by Mark Dion, convincing him that fighting Diaz on an Elite XC CBS show wasn't a "good career move". Derailing this and Brandon Vera's budding career, way to go Marky….

Yeah while I can slightly see KJ's side of being mad at Elite XC (for actually re negotiating his contract following the Krazy Horse loss .. according to Noons)
and his boxing contract not being honored.
Noons is respectively 7-2 and hasn't got the resume or name recognition to start pulling his weight around and refusing fights.
**when you see someone like Randy Couture or Fedor having contract disputes it's at least more warranted
but from KJ Noons? the guy should suck it up and at the very least honor his contract.
where does he go from here? EliteXC drove him through the mud during his hold out to fight Diaz .. he gets stripped of his title.
**I could see Golden Boy Promotions picking him up, and KJ taking part in one or more of those MMA/Boxing cards next year.
Diaz is old news, KJ already beat him. U guys say he's a nobody but you were all on Edwards jock when he beat Berto by that knee and thot he was gonna go somewhere, and what happens? KJ starches him in a round, give the man some credit, EliteXC is trash anyways

This is more the fault of the agent then of Noons.
They beliveved they weren't properly promoting KJ in EXC....before they had adaquate time to promote KJ.
It's like complaining about never coming to their resturant again because they didn't serve your order when you really didn't give the waitstaff the proper time to ring the order up in order to be served in the first place.
And yes, Cuts are proper grounds for a rematch.
Sorry, if Nick wasnt such a pr!ck i'd be more sympathetic, but he runs his mouth and still loses so he can sit his a$$ down
