MMA Fighter Battles Animal Abusers

Published by PETA.

Ladies and gentlemen, in this corner—fighting for animals—we have Strikeforce mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter and pro boxer KJ Noons.


KJ Noons MMA


Mixed martial arts junkies (it’s so addictive!) know that the MMA world champion never backs down from a good fight, and now KJ’s taking on his meanest opponents yet—animal abusers.

KJ is a hell of a fighter (he’s one of the top lightweights in the world), but he can’t beat animal abuse all by himself. He’s calling on you to help K.O. violence against animals. If you think that an animal is being abused or neglected, report it immediately. Want to hear more about what KJ has to say on the subject? You’re in luck, because the busy brawler, who will fight live on Showtime on June 16, gave us this exclusive interview and was even kind enough to autograph some swag for us to give away.
