Can’t wait for the rematch between Nick Diaz and KJ Noons? Thankfully, Showtime put together a three-part video preview that will help tide you over until the cage door closes later tonight.
For those that don’t recall, it was Noons who came out on top in their first outing. He dominated Stockton, California’s resident badass at “EliteXC: Renegade” in November of 2007, which resulted in a controversial TKO (Doctor’s Stoppage) before the start of the 2ndRound.
Hell bent on getting a rematch, Diaz confronted Noons at “EliteXC: The Return of the King” after both were victorious in their respective bouts. This altercation led to the now infamous, “Don’t be scared, homie” line that can be seen below.
Fast forward two years and MMA fans will finally get the mulligan they’ve been waiting to see. “Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Noons II” takes place tonight inside the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. The Showtime broadcast begins at 10PM ET/PT. Make sure to stay with 5thRound.com all night for our live coverage!
