Gomi Coming to America?

By Jake Rossen Jun 11, 2009
If all goes according to plan, Takanori Gomi may be stepping on to U.S. fight soil for the third time. MMAWeekly reports that Gomi is in negotiations with Affliction to appear on its Aug. 1 show.

Once considered to have a legitimate claim to be the best in a murky 160-ish weight class, Gomi has seen stock drop recently with consecutive losses in Sengoku. He’s currently on a one-fight win streak, which may not sound like much, but sure is one hell of a lot better than a three-fight losing streak.

Affliction VP Tom Atencio later told Fanhouse that Gomi will not meet rumored opponent Brett Cooper. Whether he’ll fight -- and against who -- is still TBA.
