K.J. Noons looks to step up in weight to take on Diaz

Former EliteXC lightweight champion, K.J. Noons is waiting on Strikeforce to give him his next fight, saying he’s willing to fight at lightweight or move up to welterweight to rematch Nick Diaz.

Noons, speaking via Tatame Magazine, said:

“I know that Strikeforce wants me to fight back in the US. I wanna win the fights there on 155 or even a rematch with Nick Diaz for the 170 title… Anything is up to the air, on talks, but anything is a possibility.”

“I wanna fight, but I don’t think I have to beat anyone because I’m still the champ (laughs). I’d be champ versus champ. If they want me to get some more fights before I don’t care, I just wanna fight the best whoever Strikeforce wants me to fight.”
