Noons isn't even a top 10 WW. Although I like to watch Diaz fight, I laugh at the thought that he would make waves in the UFC. He would win some, he would lose some. He would be a 5-8 WW in the UFC.

It was a close fight, so I can see that Diaz took it.

BTW, could the announce team be any more biased? Silent during Noons runs, practically climaxing during Diaz runs.
Diaz landed the better shots on round 4 and controlled the fight... I easily had Diaz winning the 4th

Sig credit to my Homie! limba!

Of course Noons isn't a top 10 WW. He's only had 1 fight at WW.

Didn't mean it factually. My opinion is he isn't a top 10 WW in the world. Other than beating Diaz with cuts at 155 who has he faced? I haven't seen him vs. good enough competition to think he is even close to being a top 10 WW.

I think Diaz is talented, but his little run he has going has been against average fighters.

The problem with Diaz now, is people will never give him respect because of who he's fighting. It's all Strikeforce has to offer though, it's another case of Fedor/Reem/Shields. Shields being the only one to make a move to solidify himself though.

Diaz is a tough SOB, who will hang with any fighter out there, but I do agree he wouldn't fare any better than the rest of the WW's in the UFC once they hit a top wrestler. So i'm content with him fighting in Strikeforce, the fights will be more entertaining.

Well Nick Diaz has beaten Drew Fickett in Ficketts prime, Zaromskis, Josh Neer, Gleison Tibau, Scott Smith, Frank Shamrock, Sakurai, KJ Noons, Robbie Lawler, and Chris Lytle... and people forget that Nick Diaz is only 26 years old.

I have no doubts that he'd have a few tricks for the top wrestlers at WW. HIs best friend is Jake Shields, and they do train together all the time so you need to take that under consideration.

It's easy to call a fighter a bum because he doesn't fight in their favorite organization, sucks for the fighter, but it just makes the fan look ignorant.

I don't recall anyone in this thread calling Diaz a "bum".

I actually thought Noons won it, although it was so close I really don't feel angry or robbed that it went to Diaz, I had it 2,3,4 to Noons but it was just so close. End of the day epic fight.

I wish Nick could have capitalized from the clinch. He had a ton of opportunities to throw some deadly knees especially considering the height difference.
