KJ Noons vs Andre Dida one of four added to DREAM 11
 
Quote:

Fighting and Entertainment Group today announced some solid additions to the card for their "DREAM.13" show in Yokohama, Japan. Two intriguing lightweight matchups, an old guard vs. new school welterweight clash, and a quintessentially J-MMA openweight bout join a previously announced featherweight scrap between Joachim Hansen and Bibiano Fernandes on the March 22nd slate.

In the 70kg (154 lbs.) division, former EliteXC lightweight champ and recent Strikeforce signee K.J. Noons (7-2) will see his first MMA action since 2008 when he meets Brazilian Muay Thai specialist Andre "Dida" Amado (6-3-1). Noons has spent the two years since his split with EliteXC in the boxing ring, amassing a respectable 4-1 record in that time (11-2 overall), though he dropped his most high profile match - a unanimous decision loss to James Countryman last March.

Meanwhile, the last man to beat "Dida," Deep ace Katsunori Kikuno (12-2-2), faces Cage Force champion Kuniyoshi Hironaka (16-6) in a battle of two of Japan's best lightweights. Kikuno was last seen in Dream's "white cage" last October, where he was submitted in the second round by Eddie Alvarez despite a strong start. Hironaka has reeled off four straight wins since dropping from welterweight, including one on that same October card against highly-touted Korean prospect Won-Sik Park.

In the second fight of his post-UFC campaign, Pride veteran Ryo Chonan (16-10) will take on Kyokushin practicioner Andrews Nakahara (2-1) at welterweight. In his homecoming match last August in Deep, Chonan came out on top with a decision win over fellow ex-UFC'er Jutaro Nakao. The still-green karate convert Nakahara was scheduled to fight Zelg Galesic in a "DREAM.12" bout which never materialized; the same fight had been rumored for this show.

Finally, Dream's very own "Super Hulk" champion, Ikushisa Minowa (44-30-8) looks to extend his three-fight win streak against oversized opponents when he meets heavyweight also-ran Jimmy "The Titan" Ambriz (14-12-1).

Does anyone know if Maruis Zaromskis will still be fighting on Dream 13? Did that get crapped?

Why? Noons' striking is better and he doesn't wilt like Dida does.

I'm sorry, but Andre Dida sucks. He is not that good.

Yeah, Dida is not that great and like Noons or not he is a quite competent striker who more than has the skills to out strike Dida.

why did noons go back to boxing anyway? he was building a name for himself in MMA, especially with the shit that went on with Nick Diaz. He would of been a nobody in boxing world just like 99% of all boxers that get paid nothing, Just seemed like it was a waste of time and money for him. Anyway glad to see him back, i expect he will KO Dida in th first, just a way better striker.
