KJ noons....Wake Up

Posted by: ThaKahuna in Kj Noons on

Someone let me know what makes KJ Noons think he can Box, he is not undefeated nor is he a prospect but he refuses to give up the Dream of him being a Boxing champion.  I can't lie though KJ's hand speed looked impressive against Nick Diaz and looked superior but he didn't show any boxing instincts against Krazy Horse and doesn't seem to be fairing better with his hands without the threat of leg kicks and takedowns but he just doesn't seem to have it. The reason I'm even talking about it is because the dude is a impressive MMA fighter,  he's got good striking power, doesn't mind trading in the pocket, and avoids takedowns well.  Obviously he's his own man and can do with his skills what he pleases but, they are being wasted boxing. He's robbing me of good fights. KJ Noons vs. Eddie Alvarez would be a great fight, and every one wants to see the Diaz re-match. I don't think he's scared of anyone because he the odds are much worse for him against mid level boxers than top level MMA fighters.  Someone must be in his ear and he's delusional to think he's going to excel in boxing right now. He pulled out of his last fight that was scheduled for last week. He could go to Japan and make a lot of money if that’s the gripe he has with MMA in the US. Until he throws back on the 5 oz. gloves I'll be shaking my head thinking WTF.....

When I saw Shane Roller get stopped at WEC 40 by a virtual unknown Ben Henderson , and as I thought back to how Jake Rosholt got handled and submitted with ease by Dan Miller at UFC Fight night 17, I'm thinking Team Take Down is kind of a let down.  Here you have this Stable of Champion collegiate wrestlers being supported by a wealthy business man so all they have to do is Train MMA and not have to deal with the Poverty and financial hardships that go along with being a young fighter, they are in there with some of the Best trainers in the game, but they don’t seem to be catching on like I thought they would.  Johny Hendricks is the only Team Takedown fighter who hasn’t been stopped. Maybe they were thrown in the deep end too soon?

Now I know that in MMA everyone loses (except Fedor) even Anderson Silva lost his first fight. But these guys just aren’t looking good out there even when Rosholt beat Nissen Osterneck he was getting pummeled before Osterneck simply ran out of gas, and Roller has been TKO’ d twice due to strikes. I wouldn’t even be writing this if there wasn’t such hype around them.  There was the Fight Mag article and they were on Tapout show…Truthfully I think Arizona Combat sports is fairing much better than Team Takedown most of their fighters are former ASU wrestlers. I think it comes from AZ Combat fighters adapting they’re wrestling skills for MMA. Being a High-level wrestler and using wrestling in MMA are 2 different beasts, but then again what do I know?

I loved to see hype exposed, Hyped movies, Hyped Artists, Hyped Teams, hyped Athletes, and especially hyped Fighters....(boxing or MMA) but this Kimbo thing was sad, it was worse than hype. it was just a bold faced lie. How could a company bet everything on a 40 year old bully? Thats bad business, I don't blame Kimbo he was just tryin to get paid. I blame the dummies at Pro elite, they thought they could buy up all these smaller shows and turn into the UFC, but they just ended up the XFL of MMA; Money and a TV deal with no talent...They thought they could spoon feed Kimbo forever and as soon as a legit fighter stepped in with him....pop Bam, parties over...Its funny bcuz I tried to set up a fight with Kimbo when I was in college like 3 years ago but his people said our money wasn't long enough and he wouldn't fight me...I hope Flimbo saved his money bcuz I dont think he's a draw anymore....The best part was Jared Shaw screaming " back of the head" like Kimbo wasn't already on queer street...
