It’s been a long time in the making. A long time since Nick Diaz uttered that magic phrase to KJ Noons — “Don’t be scared, Homie”, but the rematch between Noons and Diaz will finally happen. This time it’s Strikeforce, not the defunct Elite XC, and it will take place on October 9th.

Will Diaz try to use his ground skills to beat Noons? This rematch might be long past just trying to secure a win. Diaz wants to punish Noons and will likely try to stand and trade shots with him. The only person that Diaz wants to beat up more than Noons is Mayhem Miller. Maybe we get to see that fight next.

Noons is a punishing striker that loves to counter. If anyone in MMA truly practices the overused phrase “punches in bunches”, it’s Diaz. How does that fit into how the fight will go? This is also a much improved Nick Diaz since the last time they fought. That being said, Noons did stuff a lot of Diaz’s takedown attempts and beat him to the punch often. All I really know is that I am psyched to see Noons back in MMA and fighting Diaz in October.
