Cageside : Who is your favorite super hero and why?

Scott Noble : Mt Favorite superhero would have to be Hancock..lol

Cageside : You won by a spectacular first round high kick KO in just 8 seconds, you literally jumped in the air and landed sideways on the ground after making contact. What made you decide to go for such a move?

Scott Noble : Well when he came out, he had his hands considerably low,  so I  knew that  I would be able to land a kick if I threw it hard enough. I thought it hit hard, and on target. It was like kicking thru air, so I swept myself off my feet from the force I guess….

Cageside : What did you know about your opponent going into the fight?

Scott Noble : Well I knew he supposedly had some boxing experience, and he had at least 10lbs on me, but that’s all the info I had on him.

Cageside : Your fight almost got cancelled due to an “equipment malfunction”, rumor has it that your opponent forgot his cup. Would you have loaned him yours in order for the match to happen?

Scott Noble : LOL, No I couldn’t loan him my cup. Then I wouldn’t of had one of my own, but if I had an extra, yes he could have it for keeps…You just cant be sharing cups! That’s not cool.

Cageside : Did you have a chance to speak to your opponent after the fight?

Scott Noble : No i didn’t… I was able to shake his hand after the fight in the ring but naw man, I didn’t get a chance to see him after the fight.

Cageside : You fought at a catchweight of 200 lbs., what do you feels is the best weight class for you?

Scott Noble : Middleweight class is the best class for me, because its an easy cut for me and I still feel healthy and explosive.

Cageside : Do you have any idea on when your next bout might be?

Scott Noble : Well I currently have a fight scheduled for CFFC February 23rd in Richmond VA.

Cageside : Thank you for taking the time to speak with Cageside Media, we look forward to watching your progress in the months to come.
