“Winner of six of his last seven, KJ Noons returns to action on Saturday, June 18th to face off against fellow contender Jorge Masvidal on the STRIKEFORCE: Overeem vs. Werdum card at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
Noons (9-2), the last man to defeat Nick Diaz, is coming off a hard-fought five round decision loss to the STRIKEFORCE welterweight champion last October, but as he returns to the 155-pound weight class, the 28 year old striker is eager to make his mark once again in the lightweight division, where he owns wins over Yves Edwards and Jorge Gurgel.
21-6 as a pro, Jorge Masvidal owns a perfect 3-0 record in STRIKEFORCE, with victories against Matt Lee, Ryan Healy, and most recently, Billy Evangelista. Like Noons, Masvidal has some pro boxing experience, making this a bout that could turn into a memorable standup war.” – Strikeforce.com
Thats what Strikeforce has to say about this fight. What I have to say is “Don’t blink.”
Jorge Masvidal went five rounds against Paul Daley. I’m faster, more technical, and hit harder then Paul Daley. This is going to be a great fight for the fans and a great fight to find out who is capable of giving Gilbert Melendez a run for his money.
I’m coming into this fight more prepared then ever. I’m healthy, I have a great team in San Diego helping me get ready for this fight. I’m ready to show Zuffa that they got more then they bargained for in purchasing Strikeforce.
Thank you to all the fans and everyone that has supported me.
