KJ Noons on Jorge Masvidal fight: “This is for the No. 1 contender for the 155”

Former EliteXC 160 pound champion, KJ Noons has revealed that his upcoming June 18th fight with Jorge Masvidal in Dallas, Texas will determine the new number one contender for the Strikeforce lightweight championship.

Noons, speaking via MMAWeekly.com, said:

“This is for the No. 1 contender for the 155, and then I get a title shot. I was actually supposed to get a shot back last year, but that opportunity came up to fight (Nick) Diaz, they asked me if I would move up to fight for the title, and a lot of people wanted to see that, so I said sure no problem so we made it happen. Now I’m back in my original weight class, and I’m just going to put on exciting fights.”
