MMA Quick Quote: Miesha Tate vs Ronda Rousey shouldn't be the Strikeforce main event this weekend

Josh Thompson takes on K.J. Noons this weekend (March 3, 2012) at Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey.

"We've got to make sure we're trying to outdo the main event. There's a lot of hype around the main event so I think [we're] two males who really want to try to prove to ourselves and to everybody else that we should have been the main event. I think that's what we're trying to do."

-- According to Josh Thomson, his Strikeforce Lightweight fight against K.J. Noons should have been the headliner at this weekend's (March 3, 2012) Strikeforce: "Tate vs. Rousey" mixed martial arts (MMA) event, at least that's what he told Sherdog.com. The event ,which takes place at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, is headlined by a female Bantamweight title fight between current champ Miesha Tate taking on Olympic Judo medalist Ronda Rousey. Feeling snubbed by the woman's title fight, "The Punk" is going to do his best to put on a show Saturday night and prove to the MMA world the reason(s) his bout should have received topped billing. The winner of the Thompson vs. Noons bout is expected to receive a title shot against Strikeforce 155-pound champion Gilbert Melendez. The event also includes an exciting welterweight scrap between Paul Daley and Kazuo Misaki. Anyone feel Thompsons' beef? Or did Strikeforce get the main event correct by letting the women get top billing?
