    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Anyone paying attention to the KJ Noons / Elite XC drama???

    Cage Potato has been reporting all day about the situation between KJ Noons and Elite XC which has, apparently, been heating up.

    Elite XC wants KJ to fight Nick Diaz again. They have offered KJ a contract for the fight, and KJ has refused to sign it. Elite XC went so far as to give KJ an ultimatum, agree to the fight by 5 pm today, or "face the dreaded “public opinion” as a consequence." Apparently KJ's manager, some douche by the name of Mark Dion (formerly Brandon Vera's manager (actually, maybe he still is Vera's manager, IDK), has responded, basically telling Elite XC to go **** themselves and threatening to hold a press conference if Elite XC doesn't start seeing things his way (I'm assuming they would announce KJ as a "free agent"). Apparently the KJ camp don't feel Diaz should be the #1 contender. They think Eddie Alvarez should get the next shot.

    Anyway, there are 3 articles about the situation up here:

    Is KJ Noons scared, as Nick so eloquently suggested???

    Does anyone give two shits about KJ Noons?

    Does anyone give two shits about Elite XC, for that matter?

    Anyway, I think the whole thing is fairly funny, thought I'd pass it on and see what you all thought about it.

    It sounds like Vince McMahon is writing EliteWC, which is probably why it sucks so much.

    Ninja please! Vinnie Mac would have had this play out in a MUCH cooler fashion. Like having hated heel champion KJ hit street smart man of the people Nick with a steel chair and busted his face open, then sign the contract in Diaz's blood before Nate Diaz hit the polygonal cage to make the save, leading up the the shocking swerve where Nate costs Nick the rematch, and then aligns with KJ, saying he is sick of being in Nick's shadow.

    Man, if only Mr. McMahon had bought PRIDE instead of the Ferittitas...

    Agreed, this is solely the work of Gary Shaw. Fixed fight allegations, drama, speaking in the language of bullshit...it all smacks of a Vince McM lite.

    I used to watch KJ fight in ICON when I lived in Hawaii, dude was fearless and he hit like a truck. I seriously doubt he's ducking Diaz. I do however believe that his manager is a douche who is hurting his fighter in the long run by missing a chance to fight a big name on CBS primetime.

    He's ducking and has made that abundantly clear.
    He doesn't want to fight Nick because he knows he only one due to a lucky cut.

    Actually, EliteXC would arguably be in much better shape if they emphasized theatrics and wackiness over pure sport.

    And to those dissing Gary Shaw as a Vince McMahon wannabe - he's no longer in a position of power at EliteXC, and was behind many of the decisions that steered EliteXC away from Pro Wrestling style angles.

    Did you see the fight? Noons was clearly winning. That "lucky" cut was a result of repeated shots to the face. I'm not claiming that Diaz can't beat him, I'm sure he can and in a rematch quite possibly would. But to claim that Noons is dodging based on the last fight is just silly.

    Noons is ducking because Nick is clearly the better fighter.
    The fight was stopped between rounds and it was ludicrous to read too much into that.

    Diaz is the better fighter, everyone knows that including KJ.
