Strikeforce: Champions, the last show for the promotion, is expected to take place on January 12, 2013 at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Mousasi is undefeated in his last five bouts going 4-1 with a unanimous decision victory against Ovince St. Preux last December under the Strikeforce banner. His other bout was a DREAM title defense against Hiroshi Izumi in Japan in July 2011, with first round TKO stoppage.

Noons is 1-3 in his last four fights, having lost a lightweight title eliminator to Josh Thomson last March. His last win came in December of last year, winning a decision against Billy Evangelista in San Diego.

Couture has steadily increased the level of competition he’s faced and will have his hands full against Noons. The lightweight has won three straight having beaten Joe Duarte last July by split decision, Conor Heun via TKO last March, and Maka Watson via split decision in September of last year.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
