I know I'm going off on the Noons thing but I have never been so excited about a fight. It's pretty cool to see someone you see in JJ class take out Diaz.

Here's a video of one of our JJ teacher's fights. He's the lighter skinned guy, Carlos Baruch.

YouTube - Carlos Baruch x Nilson de Castro - 1 of 2 (Meca X)

Now imagine KJ noons walking around at 162# trying to fend of Baruch's takedowns. Baruch doesn't have the best mma record, but the guy is an amazing trainer and has great takedowns. The power behind his takedowns is what, 5x greater than Diaz's. Training with Baruch paid off! I'd give him half the credit for the win.
