Your not the best at betting on fights are you CC lol. You just completely ignore the fact that in the first fight, Diaz was constantly trying to take Noons down and he couldnt, his take downs were stuffed, bar one, and then noons scrambled immediately back up to his feet.

Common sense says that diaz doesnt have the wrestling to take down Noons (like in the first fight) and he doesnt have the boxing or power to trouble KJ on the feet. There is a chance diaz can take noons down and win, but its a slim one. Noons beats diaz 9 times out of 10 here.

I wouldn't mind seeing this fight either. I tend to agree that Cung is no where near the level of Diaz, but I would like to see. They both kicked Shamrock's ass, and Smith's. Even though he lost that first fight, I think it was just conditioning. He obviously wasn't use to hitting a slowly moving heavy bag for 3 rounds. So I am not really sure where Cung stands. From the three MMA fights I have seen of his I like his style and I think he has entertaining fights. I would just like to see if those kicks can really win a fight against an upper level opponent.

Noons is in deep water here...

Imagine a highly motivated Nick Diaz............

That's a guaranteed killer.

Diaz wins this fight by stoppage before the 4th possibly by sub... but I think it will be by GNP.

He's from the street.. he's gonna want to sit on top of him and beat his face in...

This is Noons's first fight at 170... trust me, nobody want's to fight Nick Diaz in their first fight at that weightclass... and Noons is gonna see the difference in Nicks power...


Noons should have asked for Josh Thompson after that Gurgel victory because he's about to pick up a loss here...

I guess I don't know why Noons didn't try to call out Melendez. That's the title in his weight class. I mean he's getting beaten by either guy, but I think Diaz at 170 is going to be ugly for Noons.

Sweet fight added to the San Jose card!

Josh Thomson vs JZ



Quote:
Fighting in enemy territory is nothing new for Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante after years of fighting in Japan, but now the American Top Team fighter will step into a similar situation as he faces Josh Thomson in his hometown of San Jose on Oct 9 as the two lightweights are set to square off in Strikeforce.

The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com on Wednesday by Cavalcante's manager, Alex Davis, who spoke with MMAWeekly Radio about the match-up.

"It's a very good fight, I think it's a great fight for JZ," Davis said about the fight.

Cavalcante (15-3-1) comes to Strikeforce after defeating Katsunori Kikuno in his last fight in July for Dream. It was a long road back for the Brazilian who had to deal with several injuries to his knee before coming back.

Previously ranked as a top five lightweight, Cavalcante hopes to re-earn that placement in the division and it starts with his October bout against former Strikeforce champion Josh Thomson.

"For JZ, it's important to come fight on American soil. He's done very, very well in Japan, he came off some injuries and took some losses because he fought not at 100%. He took a tough fight recently, he played it safe and he won, and now he's going to fight Josh Thomson," Davis stated. "I expect him to do very, very well."

After suffering injured ribs in his last fight but still managing to get a submission win, Josh Thomson (17-3) looks to build on that win as he gets closer to the top of the lightweight division again. Thomson lost the Strikeforce lightweight belt to Gilbert Melendez in December 2009, and has vowed to remain active as he gets back to title contention.

Thomson spoke to MMAWeekly Radio last week and said that Strikeforce officials had approached him about fighting in Dream, but he opted to stay at home fight on the October 9 card instead. He will get his wish and a fight with a very tough opponent.

The bout between Thomson and Cavalcante will be part of the main televised card for Oct 9 in San Jose, headlined by welterweight champion Nick Diaz defending his belt against K.J. Noons.

I posted a thread about this fight earlier...


This one is gonna be a blowout... damn if the STRIKEFORCE LW picture ain't shaping up..

I really wish K.J. would have stuck around.. I needed to see him fight Beerbohm, Evangelista or Ribeiro..

...Good card. Diaz & Noons will be a crazy slugfest barnburner. Nick is at his peak and his boxing is the best it's ever been. If Nick just takes Noons down, it will be over quick. Diaz will tap Noons in a blink. Ya just know crazy Nick will make it a stand-up brawl. That patented Diaz taunting will be hilarious. lol! I only see Nick taking to the ground if he get rocked badly. Other than that- swingfest 101. If Diaz stands- he needs to punch first, mix it up with solid legkicks and keep K.J. at the end of his punches. If Noons finds his range, Nick will get cracked and dropped. I'm picking Nick and I hope he avenges his loss ditto- via TKO or KO.
...Sarah Kaufman is an awesome fighter and has become well-rounded. She showed impressive submission defense against Gracie level grappler Modafferi and finished her with that killer KO slam. Sarah's TTD is good as well. Kaufman should take this with ease by letting her hands go...
