COLUMBUS, Ohio - Although K.J. Noons recently boasted about a more well-rounded game, Josh Thomson corralled the former pro boxer and continually took him to the mat.
The ground-oriented game plan carried the former Strikeforce lightweight champion to a unanimous - though not-always-flashy - decision victory over Noons.
The fight co-headlined"Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey" at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. It aired on Showime following prelims on Showtime Extreme.
