    Tonight on Showtime at 10 Eastern Strikeforce Diaz VS Noons II is on. The card looks decent with both the men's and women's WW championships on the line. For those of you who haven't seen MMA it's a chance to turn it on and see what the buzz is about.

    BTW Noons in the upset...

    Glad to see Kaufman is getting a fight on a big event instead of stuck on another Challengers card.

    I'd love to see Noons take it. If Diaz has an ounce of sense he will take it to the ground as soon as possible. I'm more excited to see the Kaufman/Coenen fight. This is a pretty strong card for SF. Until they get some depth in their divisions the will remain a fourth place promotion.

    Just about to head up to my cousin's house to watch it. Here's hoping Noons knocks Diaz's block off.

    Ouch that arm bar had to hurt. I think Coenen's nerves got to her. Doubt it was malicious. Who the heck is gonna fight Cyborg next? Everyone cuts down to 135 after they fight her.

    Pretty good fights. Was hoping Noons would keep splitting Diaz's face like he did, good bloody battle. Hard win for Josh to get, JZ is a really effective fighter and will probably be around a while. Josh had a tough camp and is lucky to get that win. Hope we see another Melendez battle soon.

    I was very surprised with Nick's inactivity on the ground. I figured it was over when it hit the mat. Noons didn't look much like a professional boxer, but Diaz has improved his striking a ton since the first fight.

    Diaz is too cocky, and Noons constant brushing his hair out of his eyes had me hoping for a double KO within 30 seconds.

    Noons looked terrible - they went on and on about his striking and boxing credentials but he had zero head movement, lousy footwork and threw some of the ugliest, wildest "punches" I've ever seen.

    The hair thing bothered me too. :rofl:
