Former EliteXC 160lb. Champion KJ Noons seems to be suffering from a bout of temporary delusion. This guys thinks he is just going to walk away from his EliteXC contract, he’s no Randy Couture, his best win was over Nick Diaz and that was stopped due to a cut. Some one needs to tell him that EliteXC has his ass for two more fights and the way he backed out of the Nick Diaz rematch, I don’t see them backing down on this one anytime soon.
â€œIâ€™m a free agentâ€
Noons said his contract, of which two fights remain, only pertains to his reign as a titleholder.
“Since Iâ€™ve been stripped, Iâ€™m no longer the champion and I donâ€™t owe them the fights,” he said. “I owed them fights for being a champion.â€
Jeremy Lappen, EliteXCâ€™s Head of Fight Operations, doesnâ€™t agree.
“KJ still has two more fights on his contract,” Lappen said Monday. â€œIâ€™m hoping weâ€™ll work something out, but thereâ€™s really not much to work out. Heâ€™s still under contract with us.â€
