Following Nick Diaz’s destruction of boxer, KJ Noons in his last fight, much speculation has came into play, that perhaps the UFC would like to invite the former UFC star back into the organization, snatching yet another star from their competitor promotion, Strikeforce. Here’s what the president Dana White said in regards to the older Diaz brother returning to the Octagon.
“Nick Diaz got cut from the UFC because he lost three or four in a row, you know? He’s one of those guys who we respect in his fighting style and the way he goes in, but it’s a whole different animal when you’re in the UFC.”
“Who is KJ Noons? You know what I mean? Nick Diaz is a tough kid; well rounded, good fighter, but it’s a whole other ballgame when you’re in the UFC.”
