KJ Noons: ‘If You Want To See Some Lame Fighting Go Watch The UFC’ | Steve Rattlesnake

“I am especially really excited about my opponent and when you put our two styles in the ring you are really going to have a lot of fireworks. In my eyes, Jorge is the No. 1 contender so this a top fight for me. By no means am I acting like I have this one in the bag. I am training as hard as I can. This is probably one of the most dangerous opponents I have had…. Jorge comes out and puts on great shows, but if you want to watch jiu-jitsu, go to a tournament. This is fighting. If you want to see some lame fighting go Watch the UFC, go Watch something boring as hell. If you want to see something exciting, come Aug. 21 and see a guy who’s been boxing his whole life, and someone who has a black belt in jiu-jitsu. This is what people want to see…. I don’t have to say it very much but look at his track record: He has the fight of the night, and look at my track record (and I) always (have) fight of the night. Put us in the cage and you are going to get fireworks. I have respect for the main event but we are probably going to steal the show.”

When no one cares about you, saying stupid stuff is the only way to get noticed now. You know he doesn't mean that.

Guys are figuring out how to get Dana's attention! Slag off the UFC! Transalation of this "I want to be in the UFC soooo bad, come get me Dana!"

I can't recall the last boring fight I saw in the UFC. I don't have the best memory in the world or anything, but the last few cards that I have purchased were exciting as could be, and I don't regret spending my money on them at all.

that whole qoute seems like him toeing the company line and trying to hype his own fight. gurgel as a number one contender? no.

Way to make sure you never get into the UFC. Who is this guy kidding? He wouldn't give Diaz a rematch and bashes anyone who doesn't sing his praise.

Not a fan.

Hahaha just noticed he's fighting Jorge Gurgel, a guy that got cut by the UFC for not winning enough and/or being to boring !

Not a big fan of KJ because of his actions outside of the ring and I hope Jorge kicks his ass. That guy loves fighting so much he neglects his BJJ and instead goes Chute Box on his opponents. It has cost him his UFC contract and that's a shame, but I can't hate him for putting on great battles.

Wasn't for being too boring at all, he's tried to be stupidly exciting his entire career, and it's hurt him. He's a high level BJJ practitioner but for some reason decides to rely on his average striking to brawl with guys, it's not clever. If he actually used his Jiu Jitsu he'd still be in the UFC today.

Really don't like these comments. He's not hyping his fight, he's being a prick. Slagging off another company to hype your fight is just ridiculous. He's fought for Elite XC and Strikeforce too, they're hardly perfect. Elite XC was as corrupt as anything, and Strikeforce haven't exactly covered themselves in glory either. They're not putting on superb card after superb card, they're doing a decent job, nothing more. The way they dealt with Jake Shields and continue to feed guys to fighters they want to main event hype, only for it backfire on them is laughable. So he should probably look at who he's working for before slagging off the UFC, a company that are putting on consistently better fights and operating with better practices than the morons at Showtime.
