Noons vs. Masvidal to determine Strikeforce's no.1 lightweight contender

by Damon Martin | source:

Noons confirmed the news in an interview with MMAWeekly Radio.

“This is for the No. 1 contender for the 155, and then I get a title shot,” Noons said about his fight with Masvidal.

When the fight was made, most assumed that the fight could hold those types of implications, but Noons has been promised the shot if he wins, and he looks forward to the challenge.

“That’s it for sure,” Noons said about getting the title shot if he wins. “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.

I totally agree, people keep talking smack about this season, but it seems people sometimes forget they're are actual fights on the show. And Ramsey and Tony, are showing much. Rader and Harvison are not bums. Those are tough dudes, with legit skill, Ramsey is just so good, that people downplay those guys. MMA fans need to get smarter.

 The best thing about Ramsey is I think a lot of people underestimate him. He is a good fighter and is showing it by dominating people

AllDay, I think all these guys want in. But Ramsey seems to just want it bigtime, and I also think he is the best guy of that lot. I expect you to show much once people get to see you. NoDoubt

Yo Myles Jury, do you have any guess as to who will win the show. I think Ramsey wins. And I hope your recovery is coming along well. Keep at it

It needs to be, to have a number 1 contender fight, and not show it, is just beyond foolish. So they dont go and show who will fight Melendez, neither guy is a really well known name, and what if they go and beat Melendez. Probably is not bound to happen, but possibly could. I bet you, no casual fans know who either guy is. They are so fucking good, and us hardcores laud them. But in the big picture, they need to be exposed to the masses. This is easy. NoDoubt
