Whether it is a legitimate concern or an attempt at adding a little heat to a fight that hasn’t picked up much steam yet, Scott Coker told MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani they plan to bring in extra security for this weekend’s Diaz vs. Noons II event.
“I’ll tell you what – if we leave those two guys in a room alone, I think you know what’s going to happen,” Coker said. “So it’s up to us – we’re going to have a wall of security there. We’ve brought extra police to handle the weigh-ins, the press conference and pretty much a wall of people will be there for the night of the fight. We have to take precautionary measures because these guys have this big feud – and it’s not just them, it’s their camps. We’re going to make sure that we host it properly, and part of that is adding extra security and police officers, and it’ll be fine.”
