    MMA SUPERSTARS KJ NOONS & JOSH THOMSON TO APPEAR ON MMA LIVE ON ESPN2
    TODAY/THURSDAY

    WHO:        Former World Champ & Devastating Striker KJ Noons
    Former STRIKEFORCE World Lightweight Belt-Holder Josh Thomson

    WHERE:     ESPN2

    WHEN:    Thursday, Oct. 7, at 1 a.m. ET / 10 p.m. PT

    WHAT:    Interview on MMA LIVE this Thursday on ESPN2

    The STRIKEFORCE fighters will discuss this Saturday’s STRIKEFORCE: Diaz vs. Noons II event presented by Rockstar Energy Drink at HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., live on SHOWTIME® (10 p.m. ET/PT, delayed on the West Coast). 
    In the main event of the world championship doubleheader, Noons will challenge STRIKEFORCE Welterweight Champ Nick Diaz for the 170-pound crown in a grudge rematch that has been brewing since their first fight ended in bloody controversy nearly three years ago.

    Both Diaz (22-7), of Stockton, Calif., and Noons (9-1), of San Diego, Calif., have gone undefeated since their last meeting and bad blood between the brash fighters has only increased.

    San Jose native Josh Thomson (17-3) will meet the world-ranked “JZ” Cavalcante (15-3-1), of Brazil, in a fight that could determine the next challenger for STRIKEFORCE World Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez.  Thomson (17-3), who shut out Melendez across five rounds to capture the lightweight title in 2008, is coming off a hard-fought submission victory over Pat “Bam Bam’’ Healy last June 26 at HP Pavilion.

    In the card’s second world championship bout, undefeated Sarah Kaufman (12-0) will defend her STRIKEFORCE Women’s Welterweight (135 pounds) World Title against No. 1 contender Marloes Coenen (17-4).  Another featured fight will pit top prospects Tyron Woodley (8-0) and Andre Galvao (5-1) in a welterweight fight.
