KJ Noons vs. Jorge Masvidal Possible for “Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley” on April 9

KJ NoonsFresh off a win over previously unbeaten Billy Evangelista at Saturday’s “Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Feijao” event, Jorge Masvidal could welcome K.J. Noons back to the lightweight division at “Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley” on April 9, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker recently told MMAjunkie.

Masvidal’s (21-6) win over Evangelista was the fourth in six bouts for the Bellator and Sengoku vet who was coming off a loss to Paul Daley, while Noons (9-2) fell to welterweight champ Nick Diaz in October after six-straight wins.

Diaz defends the 170-pound title against Daley in the main event of the April 9 Showtime-televised event from San Diego, California, which also includes lightweight champ Gilbert Melendez vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri, Gegard Mousasi vs. Mike Kyle, and Shinya Aoki vs. Lyle Beerbohm.
