TAKANORI GOMI RUMORS

Myles Jury scorches Takanori Gomi with first round TKO

It took Myles Jury less than two minutes to put away Takanori Gomi with a blistering first round knockout in the co-main event from the UFC Fight Night card in Japan. While he's moved all the way to No. 9 in the lightweight rankings, Jury remains one of the most underrated fighters at 155-pounds despite the fact that he's undefeated and has looked better than ever since his...

Takanori Gomi defeats Isaac Vallie-Flag in a bloodbath

The Fireball Kid’s still got it. And by ‘it,’ I mean he can still throw a Hadouken with his left hand like it was 2004. Isaac Vallie-Flag put on one hell of a fight, and many say he was beating GOmi at one point, but I had it 29-28 at worst on my card. I could argue for a 30-27. Vallie-Flag did his best in staying active and moving through Gomi’s punches, but in the end,...

Pic: Gomi Broke His Hand In The First Round Against Sanchez

In what is now regarded as one of the most controversial decisions in recent memory, Diego Sanchez defeated Takanori Gomi via split decision in their UFC on Fuel TV 8 feature fight. The former Pride lightweight champion controlled the fight and clearly put on a better performance that his counterpart yet suffered a frustrating (and baffling) loss to Sanchez.

UFC 144 Results: The Fireball Kid Is Back

Hometown hero Takanori Gomi survived a late 1st Round scare Sunday afternoon in Saitama, Japan. His opponent Eiji Mitsuoka caught him with a brutal counter right. Instead of going for the TKO, Mitsuoka followed Gomi to the ground and looked to flatten his opponent out, sinking in the triangle. Luckily for Gomi he was saved by the bell and the fight continued.
