Well who would like to be the judge in that round, Diaz clearly started the round better and had the best of the first 3 mins, but then most of the action came in the last 2 mins where Noons had the upper hand, judge’s discretion is vital on if you’re going to give the edge aggression and octagon control to Diaz for been in control for longer in that round or if your going to give it do Noons because he had the edge in terms of control for most of the action, there really is no clear winner in that round any judge would have grounds to give his decision to ether fighter.

Personally I would score the round 10-9 Diaz because his dominance in the first 3 mins did yield a knock down and control on the ground, and I don’t think that Noons had quite enough total control in the last 2 mins to justify coming back from that and winning the round because even though he had the upper hand over those 2 mins, Diaz was still very much in the fight and able to do just enough to maintain his early lead.

Easy round to score this time, a clear 10-9 Noons, was a bit of a boxing match for almost the entire round and Noons landed the most shots and landed the more damaging shots, and was clearly in control for the entire round, aisde from a few solid jabs, one of which muct of caused the bleeding to KJ’s nose Diaz really hand nothing on Noons in this round

Noons - 0.27 - right hook (soft)
Diaz - 0.20 - double uppercut in the clinch
Noons - 0.05 - inside leg kick

Clear 10-9 Diaz no question about it, Diaz controlled the pace in this round was successful at keeping KJ out of his range by using his reach advantage effectively where as KJ was never really able to get going, he had short spells where he was able to get inside but failed to make them count enough to justify stealing the round from Diaz who had the control and dictated the tempo for the majority.

Going in the Championship rounds we have the scores set at 29-28 Diaz leaving him only needing one more round to justify his claim to the title.

Diaz - 0.42 - Diaz - Jap, back to establishing his range and reach advantage
Noons - 0.18 - Hook to the body

No question in my mind Diaz wins the 4th 10-9, arguably 10-8, but I am going with 10-9 Diaz because at no point did he look like he was going in to try and finish the fight. Aside from a short spell near the end when Noons lead with the uppercut and went on a desperate aggressive spell to try and turn things around, Diaz again had control of the round used his reach advantage to great effect, and even then during the short spell near the end when KJ did turn up the aggression Diaz was able to catch his with a big shot and force him to give up his attack.

Going into the final round the score sits at 39-37 Diaz, and if you ask me the look on Noon's face as he walks back to his corner suggests he knows this and that he now needs to finish in order to win this fight.
