"The Fireball Kid" Takanori Gomi wants a rematch with BJ Penn:
"I want to fight BJ Penn again. He knows Iím the unique guy of this division able to knock him out. It would be the biggest champions fighting. Imagine how this match would be Ö but itís not close to coming true. I donít want to talk over UFC Ö Mr. Dana White is a great manager and I respect him but is a person hard to deal with. Iím not an art martial beginner, I am a MMA champion. What about him? What would he be?"
Awkward translation to say the least but he's basically saying Dana isn't up for paying him what he thinks he deserves to come over and fight in the UFC. I know this would make several folks in the forum jizz their pants if Gomi came to fight for the UFC (I am looking squarely in the direction of OBI), but does anyone think he has what it takes to beat BJ this time around?
My vote is no. Would I like to see Gomi in the UFC sure! Do I think he'd get eaten alive like Aoki would by the strong wrestlers? Absolutely, although Gomi is a much better striker than Aoki.
