i thought gomi wanted to go to the ufc,
might be better to fight in affliction with the rope arena in a cage he might not handle it

Actually, Gomi didn't agree. Cooper agreed to catchweight (possibly 165) but Gomi didn't want to move up.

Seems like Brett dodged a bullet there, which is a good thing since Coop is awesome. His bout with Rory Markham is one of my favorite fights of all time. No doubt he has the chin to go three rounds with Gomi, but the difference in hand speed would have been immediatley apparent.

If they end up putting Gomi in the show--this event could rival just about any UFC show--minus UFC 100 of course.
