EliteXC News: K.J. Noons Ducking Rematch With Nick Diaz?


noons ducks diaz

EliteXC VP Jared Shaw calls out KJ Noons to “step up” and take the rematch with Nick Diaz on Oct. 4.

“Nick Diaz is the No. 1 contender. K.J. Noons should step up and be the champion that we think he is and take this fight. Nick Diaz will take this fight any place, anywhere….(Noons’ management) won’t even return our calls.”

“I don’t understand it. This fight on CBS is maximum exposure and the opportunity for maximum sponsorship dollars, way more than he could make on Showtime. At this point, I question his management.”

“Hopefully K.J. wants the fight and hopefully he will instruct his management to take the fight….K.J. signed a contract. All we want is for him to honor that contract, fight on Oct. 4 on CBS, and prove that he’s the champion we think he is. Right now, he’s not representing us as the EliteXC champion.”

Noons was awarded the first ever EliteXC lightweight belt when he defeated Nick Diaz by TKO (Cut) back at EliteXC 3 “Renegade”.

Although the fight has been hyped by EliteXC, Noons seems not to interested in giving Nick Diaz a shot at his belt.

Well have to see how this plays out after this “Call Out” by EliteXC spreads trough the forums and the media.

    kj noons is afraid of Diaz. The first fight was a gift. Diaz is the man and will embarass noons. If I was noons management, I wouldnt return their calls either.

    He can't duck now that Elite is putting his business out there to the public. I bet this match will be set up before the end of the week.

    Noons is a coward and knows Diaz will either KO him or tap him out. Diaz was fine in that 1st fight even though he was cut. Look at last minute of the 1st round diaz was starting to take control of the fight.

    Wow Diaz will KO him? Noons is a coward? Edwards would wipe the floor with Diaz and look what Noons did to him. Come on I thnik this is all about money. Noons wants to keep fighting the best fighters and wants EliteXc to make the matches. He will beat the shit out of the way overrated Diaz. And after he beats him does he fight? Both Diaz's are lil punks. They run there mouths and put on boring fights. Talk about kimbo looking slow. Diaz is only 155 and he throws like a turtle. He has no power and K.J. is WAY to quick for him. What Diaz deserves to be in the top10 again b/c he beat a couple of shit fighters that go 50 50 in win-loss ratio? K.J. beating Diaz again does nothing for him but Shaw wants to build it up and since Diaz is the only fighter capable of making the fight sell thats what they are going to do. Diaz will lose again. Cant wait.

    Steve…. you don't know what your talking about…

    You obviously have'nt seen Nick Diaz KO robbie lawler!

  8. steve

    August 20, 2008 at 10:44 pm

    Wow what a surprise DanP brings up the 1 hit wonder punch. That was luck Danny boy. Since u r claiming thatDiaz has KO power b/c he tko'd lawler like 5 years ago. Give me a break lawler wasnt even KO'd u dumbass. Dont accuse me of not knowing what im talking about. Watch his fights u fukking idiot. Iam sure if u did u would not only see but they would talk about how he dont have ko power but he hits u a bunch and after enough of those peppering shots he throws adds up them he can finish them. But yeah DanP ur right I guess Travis Lutter is a ko puncher b/c did u seewhat he did to eastman like 6 years ago. That was an actual ko and he is still not considered a ko puncher b/c one ko dont mean u r a knock expert. Watch a lil mma and maybe study and learn a lil before u say I dont know what im talking about.


    August 20, 2008 at 11:39 pm

    why is everyone who uses this so defensive? lighten up boys its just opinions. It sounds like diaz will never get the chance to prove if he has ko power again unless noons stops ducking him.

  10. DanP

    August 21, 2008 at 4:27 am

    Yeah… Steve you need to relax… I was not saying Diaz is a ' BIG KO puncher'…. but he has, in past showed some heavy hands… and you have to admit the Diaz v Lawler fight was brilliant – And it can't be easy to drop Robbie with yer' hands!

    and… you still don't know what your alking about… LOL

  11. steve

    August 21, 2008 at 10:10 am

    DanP you telling me I dont know what im talking about is hilarious. Yes u did try and say that Diaz is a Ko puncher b/c u brought up Diaz and Lawler but again 1 fight that wasnt even a knockout doesnt make u a KO puncher. Yeah obviously anyone who seen the diaz lawler fight would say it is one of the best fights they have ever sen and it was. Its not about Nick having achance to show he has KO power since he doesnt. If he ever beat K.J it would be after he got dropped and K.J went to finish him and Nick caught him in a submission. Diaz is not skiled enough on the feet at all and K.J has no need to fight him again. Diaz is the guy that wil always talk shit no matter how many times u beat him b/c he is a punk. If I was K/J I would be trying to get a Co-Promtion fight with Josh Thomson. That fight sounds WAY better then Diaz getting his ass kicked again by Noons in the 1st round.

  12. steve

    August 21, 2008 at 10:12 am

    DanP also since u brought up the past Diaz has shown way more that he doesnt have KO power so he has to pick u apart with little punches. He couldnt even stumble Maik Aina. He hits people with peppering shots FYI since I know that u dont know how DFiaz fights cuz if u did u wouldnt be arguing and looking stupid right now.

  13. DanP

    August 21, 2008 at 7:22 pm

    Steve, I can assure you I am not looking stupid right now… to be honest I like Nick Diaz beacuse his fights are often real battles (Sanchez, Lawler & Gomi in particular)… you obviously don't rate him…. fair enough

    So thats the end of that… bored with this thread now,…

    noons wants to fight eddie alvarez but he is taking a break from fighting. i get that they are pissed at elite and diaz for the ending of noon's last fight. i wouldnt want to give him a title shot either. but who else makes sense right now?

  15. Morey

    August 22, 2008 at 12:33 am

    The problem is that Noons manager has a big ass ego. Right now he's realizing that the Diaz fight is all there is that will sell and he doesn't want to take his foot out of his mouth.

    Hey Steve,

    Diaz has never been KO'd like your boy KJ who got put to sleep by a average fighter in Crazy Horse. He has fought the best fighters in the world and beat some good names Lawler, Gomi, Fickett, Neer, and Lytle. He was robbed against Sherk, Parisian, and Riggs if you watch the fights. Then you say Diaz has no power and is slow. Boxing is about accuracy not big punches. Diaz connects on a huge percentage of punches because he is accurate and that scores points. Guys that throw wild haymakers leave themsleves open to get KO's by a counterpunch. Your boy KJ just goes in there swinging for fences with his eyes closed and has no ground game. KJ knows he got lucky and Diaz will embarrass him and take his title so he is running like a chicken. Like I said last last minute of 1st round in their fight Diaz was taking it to KJ starting to control the fight watch the tape. If the fight continued Diaz would have beat him. The dude was cut worse than that against Gomi. KJ should have sent the doctor a Christmas card for the stoppage.

    So Gay J Noons won't fight? what a sack man.

  18. steve

    August 25, 2008 at 4:19 pm

    Scott u know nothing of what u speak. You say that Diz has beaten some great fighters and that he was robbed of other decisions? He lost those fights buddy. How about u go back and watch them. And the good fighters he beat like Lawler and Gomi would wipe his ass if they fought again. Also u saying a bunch of basic things about fighting like wide punches are countered by straight pun ches is fucking hilarous. Wow that is amazing u know that u must have seen a boxing match before. LMAO everyone on this fucking site knows that so I wish dumbasses like u would stop stating obvious facts about fighting. Eveyone knows that u dont make urself look better by saying it either. And also there are a lot of fighters who have been KO'd and they r still good. So i dont know why u said anything about KJ getting KO'd. Dont come into play when Diaz doesnt hit near as hard as CrazyHorse. Also Diaz wasnt going to comeback and he wasnt controlling shit. Go back and watch it urslef lol. He got fucked up. K.J is too good on his feet for the clown. If it didnt get stopped Diaz would have just got stung a couple more times and he would have been tko'd. Diaz has fought all mediocre fighters since he has been in EliteXc and he has looked shitty in every single fight except for his last fight which was a fucking gimme. I mean seroisly he won a split decision against Mike Aina and u think he will whipe the floor with K.J? Muhsin Corbbrey shoul have been put away in the first round but it took him almost the whole fight to finish him. K.J just beat Yves Edwards who would easily beat Nick Diaz. The only reason Diaz is getting a shot at the tilte is b/c its the only fight that Gary Shaw can put together that will draw ppl like u into saying that the card is good. K.J should be fighting a guy he hasnt already destroyed. Like Josh Thomson who is another fighter who would beat the shit out of Diaz. ALso K.J doesnt swing for the fences with his eyes closed. He is a good boxer and is bvery accurate as u should know if u would have watched how accurate he was against Diaz u would know. And he was pretty accurate against Yves Edwards also who is very good in the Stand up. Diaz dont have the power to KO K.J and he never will. The only way Diaz will beat anyone with a lil stand up is to get fucked up and dropeed a cuple of times and get a pussy submission from his back. He has looked sloppy and sluggish in a lot of fights where he should have just finished it in the first 2 minutes. But yeah ur right a win over Thomas Denny definetly proves he is deserving of a title shot. NOT!!! Whatever anyone may think about K.J one thing is for sure, he can wipe Diaz's ass b/c guess what he already did.

    Besides Nick Diaz KJ Nonns has beat nobody at all. KJ has heavy hands but has no ground skills at all. As for Diaz not fighting great fighters last 3 fights Elite XC does not have the competetion like UFC in that weight class. But Nick fights and does not duck anyone like your boy KJ. You mention he barely beat Aina that was after a big layoff and with a staff infection in his leg you moron. You said Lawler would kill him now. Lawler fights at 185 now not 170. Watch Diaz vs Karo closely. Karo had some takedowns but did NOTHING with them. Diaz outboxed him and had a close submission attempt. Watch Sherk fight Sherk did not take Diaz down 1 time. Watch Riggs fight and look at Riggs face. Diaz gets the shaft from judges because of his additude. In last fight KJ hit him with everything he had and could not put Diaz away. The last minute of that 1st round like I said Diaz was backing up KJ then took him down at the buzzer. To say KJ would have KO'd him if fight continued is stupid. Since KJ is a coward I guess Nick will not have a chance prove he is on another level than Noons.

    All those decisions he lost fair and square not because of his attitude and K.J just beat Yves Edwards who is I believe to be much better than Nick Diaz. He is way too explosive for him and would tko Diaz in 2 rounds and also u saying that Diaz and Lawler arent in the same weight divsion anymore ok but u brought up the fact that he beat Lawler and I was stating that he couldnt do it today. Even if Lawler fought him at a catchweight. Aso Diaz has been fighting at 155 not 170 lmao. Dont u remember him not making weight when he weighed in at 168lbs. U probally didnt even do that. Cuz ur a fucking idiot. So please stop acting like u know Diaz can beat Noons when you dont even know what weight class they fight in. Also u say that Diaz hasnt fought anyone in EliteXc b/c they dont have any talent ok thats true but Diaz has looked shitty in all his fights besides his last one against Denny who is a fuckingjoke of a fighter and loses at local shows at least half the time. Either way u saying Diaz would fuck K.J up is purely idiodic and rather funny at the same time. Seeing as u know barely anything about him or the sport itself. And what Level do u think Diaz is on? He couldnt even finish Corbrey in 2 rounds. It took him a whole 14 mintues to finish him. So I guess he could beat most of the fighters at 155 in the ufc huh. LOL give me a break why do u think the UFC dont want him. Same as tito they talk like they are the best and they cant back it up.

    KJ got knocked out by a bum in Crazy Horse. The dudes record is terrible. I bet because Crazy Horse KO'd KJ you think he would KO Diaz also. Gomi beat Crazy Horse and Diaz go go'd Gomi so there. KJ is a chump so enough with your man crush on him. Diaz is the only big name he has fought and KJ won because a doctors decision. I wish they would fight so the debate can be settled, but KJ's management thinks he is a big shot and deserves big shot money. Real reason KJ's camp wont take the fight because they know once Diaz beats him KJ will fade off into the sunset and never sniff a title again the rest of his career.

  22. steve

    August 26, 2008 at 4:03 pm

    LMAO scott I like how u didnt coment on the fact that u didnt know what weight class they were in. And as far as man crushes u saying Diaz would kill him and that Diaz s still a top 155 lber. If only u knew what weight class they were in. It sounds more like u have the crush buddy. Just ge over the fact that K.J has already beat his ass and wants to fight the best which is not Nick Wannabe tuff Diaz. He talks like he is good yeah but he really is only good from his back and him beating Gomi lol Gomi was gassed after the first couple of flurries buddy. Now u go back and watch that fight. Then u need to watch some of Gomi's other fights and then tell me that Gomi didnt look different against Diaz b/c when u see the fight u will know that Gomi had a very bad off night and still knocked diaz on his ass not onc but twice. Also perfect show of Diaz not having Power to hurt anyone besides a fluke Lawler hit and a patheitc bar stool brawler in Denny.

    I agree with steve Diaz hasnt backed up shit kj wouls split his shit if they fought again. Edwards and Diaz sould fight for #1 contender match.

    Scott, Steve is an idiot and does not know what he is talking about even though all he does is surf the net 20 hours a day in parent's basement. I wish people could argue without insulting others. I agree with you. KJ should just fight Diaz. There is nobody else to fight. If he thinks he is that much better, then what a WIN/WIn situation…he makes money, keeps his belt, and kicks the shit out someone he can't stand. Diaz is by no means a great fighter but he is way better than KJ. Even if KJ was to win (if this fight ever takes place), in regards to rankings, he is nobody. It is like being the champ od the USFL…who cares. But KJ is ducking him because he knows he will get his ass kicked!

  26. scott

    August 28, 2008 at 2:56 am

    Hey Steve,

    You keep referencing I think Diaz is a top 155 LB fighter. Diaz has never fought at 155LBS in Elite XC Mr. Weight expert. Him and KJ fought at 160 a weight class Elite XC designed, but you should know that. My other references about 170LBS were when Diaz fought in UFC and against Lawler you moron. Know your weight before you speak. Go get KO'd by Crazy Horse while your at it.

  27. steve

    August 29, 2008 at 12:22 am

    Actually Scott I did know that but I figured if I said lightweight and 160 u would say some smart ass remark but hell u did it anyways. Bussinessman ur a fucking idiot too how about u look at the new post explaining K.Js reasoning for not fighting faggot.
