All the fighters slated to participate in tomorrow night’s “Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Noons II” event tipped the scales today inside the HP Pavilion Concourse in San Jose, CA.
Saturday’s Showtime broadcast features a welterweight championship bout between title holder Nick Diaz and his bitter rival KJ Noons.
Noons shocked Diaz to capture the EliteXC lightweight crown back in November 2007. The current/former boxer dominated Diaz in their first outing, dropping him with a right hand and landing a knee to the grill that opened up a gash on Diaz’s forehead.
A disappointed Diaz immediately left the arena, but not before giving the bird to the cage-side doctor that opted to call the bout after the 1stRound.
Make sure to watch tomorrow night’s fights on Showtime beginning at 10PM ET/PT.

Jess Bouscal (154.25) vs. Luis Mendoza (155)
