Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker broke the news that the fight between former EliteXC lightweight champion K.J. Noons and current Strikeforce champ Josh Thomson has been put on hold due to Noons wanting to focus on his boxing career. Coker stated that Josh Thomson will still fight on the April 11th fight card.
K.J Noons hasn’t fought an MMA fight since last June after a contract dispute with EliteXC. “I think we’ll always extend the invitation,” states Coker about the door always being open for Noons to fight for Strikeforce when he returns to MMA.
