Strikeforce: Five Reasons KJ Noons Vs. Nick Diaz Is The Wrong Choice

Here we go again, Strikeforce has a golden opportunity to put a fight together that fans are clamoring for and they decide to go in the completely different direction leaving the entire MMA asking, "What are you doing?"

I'm referring of course to Strikeforce's decision to match their welterweight champion, Nick Diaz, up against KJ Noons rather than Jason "Mayhem" Miller.

I consider myself to be a pretty reasonable thinker and I can usually make some sense of the decisions that Strikeforce has made in the past, at the very least from a business standpoint, but I can't even wrap my mind around what they are trying to accomplish here.

They don't even need to sell a fight between Diaz and Miller because it's a fight everyone has been talking about since that ugly post fight incident following the Jake Shields-Dan Henderson fight at Strikeforce: Nashville.

I was initially set out to write an article defending Strikeforce's decision to go with KJ Noons but the more and more I really think about this fight the less I understand what they are trying to accomplish.

Here are five reasons why KJ Noons v. Nick Diaz is a horrible choice.
