If Nick Diaz can’t get a title shot against KJ Noons, then Fabrício “Morango” Camões wants a crack at him. Camões says that the people at EliteXC have already gotten in contact with him and, “the event [EliteXC] is negotiating to try to put me to fight, I hope he [KJ Noons] accepts it.” Noons and his camp has made it clear that he has no interest in fighting Diaz since he already owns a victory over him.

Fabrício Camões on the other hand is coming off of six straight victories, including two under the ShoXC banner.

Although Camões wants the next title shot, he’s been critical of Noons not accepting the proposed re-match with Diaz.

Camões told Tatame, “The champion of the event picking the opponents? The champ has to fight whoever the event wants. Nick Diaz has qualities to steal his belt, and I want to get into this battle too. If you have the belt, you need to be prepared to fight everybody. Every fighter that goes to EliteXC wants to fight for the belt. Nobody signs a contract thinking about fighting the worst opponent.”
