K.J. Noons Signs Multi-Fight Deal with Strikeforce

kj noonsFormer EliteXC lightweight champion K.J. Noons has inked a contract with Strikeforce in a deal that could see him inside the ring as soon as the promotion’s 12/19 “Evolution” event.

While official terms of the agreement have not been released it is believed Noons will compete multiple times under the Strikeforce banner. The signing was first reported by Sherdog’s Loretta Hunt.

The young Hawaiian has a 7-2 professional record with notable wins over Yves Edwards and Nick Diaz. Though he has not fought as a Mixed Martial Artist since June 2008, the 26-year old has been an active boxer and compiled a winning record since last stepping into the EliteXC cage.

If Noons does indeed make his Strikeforce debut on December 19th he will join an already stacked card featuring the revealing of fellow new-signees Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and Mo Lawal, as well as the long awaited rematch between Gilbert Melendez and Josh Thomson and Cung Le’s return to action against Scott Smith.
