Noe was born in Memphis, Tennessee and raised in Munford. Noe grew up in a rough neighborhood and began training in karate at the age of six, and then transitioned into Tae Kwon Do when he was 16. Noe attended Munford High School along with fellow Bellator Light Heavyweight and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, who Noe would befriend. Noe was a talented football player, going to the state finals with his high school team and personally held the state record for most tackles in a single game. However, during his senior year he injured his neck in a car accident which resulted in the end of his football career. Noe then joined a local boxing team with "Rampage" Jackson which evolved into mixed martial arts training as Jackson would teach Noe wrestling techniques and Noe would teach Jackson striking techniques.
Noe made his professional debut in 2000. He became more active in 2007 after a few fights to tune up his craft and didn't fight again until 2008. Noe compiled a professional record of 3-1 with one no contest before making the under card with Strikeforce.
