IMO Noons and Diaz are both overrated.
Noons' boxing is good but he does not utilise it as well as he should. He seems to think the fact that his boxing is technically superior to his opponenets that he can just stand and bang with anyone. He needs to be more Frankie Edgar like IMO and move in and out and pick his shots more - otherwise he just turns fights into brawls and negates his boxing advantage.
I have warmed to Nick slightly over the past year but still think he relies on his chin FAR too much. His defensive stand up is poor and it is only a matter of time before someone hits him on the button and puts him out (like jeremy jackson did).
