K.J. Noons Set to Sign with the UFC Despite Strikeforce Loss to Ryan Couture

Former EliteXC lightweight champion, K.J. Noons has revealed that you can expect to see him inside the octagon over the next year despite a controversial split decision loss to Ryan Couture this past weekend in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Noons, speaking via MMAJunkie, said:

“They said, ‘Heal up, and as soon as you’re healed up, then start training, and we’ll get you on a card.”

Noons was sidelined since signing with Strikeforce, competing just once in 2012, a defeat to Josh Thomson. Just last Saturday he ended his term with the California based promotion when he lost via split decision to Couture.
