KJ Noons vs. Jorge Masvidal at June 18th Strikeforce event in Dallas, Texas

Former EliteXC champion, KJ Noons and the ever talented striker, Jorge Masvidal will meet in a lightweight bout at the upcoming Strikeforce event in Dallas, Texas on June 18th, 2011, with the winner likely to get a future shot at the 155 pound title.

Noons will look to get back to his winning ways after coming up in his Strikeforce welterweight title shot when he rematched Nick Diaz at the back end of last year. Prior to that he’d strung together a six fight winning streak including the previous win over Diaz for the EliteXC lightweight title.

Masvidal was shelved following his three round unanimous decision win over Billy Evangelista by an indefinite medical suspension, sources now reveal that the hand injury isn’t as bad as first thought and he has since been given the ok.
