Gomi gassed hard and very quickly he couldnt even keep his hands up. I was rooting for gomi but he was not prepared.

I kept using Sherk/Diaz as an example of how Gomi's striking would outclass Diaz's, but I guess the reach was just too much for him.

Lets not make excuses it was a great fight point blank.

If he was then he shouldn't of took the fight simple as that.

i was gonna make this thread,but why not just revive an old one?


this is how i see the fight in my head...i see Diaz beating gomi to the punch the whole first round and annoying Gomi with those little combo's he throws and forcing Gomi to take him down and i think Diaz will submit gomi or win a decision


Diaz has fought the tougher opponents and that only makes him stronger


i wonder if Diaz can intimidat gomi with trashtalk and staring him down...





my prediction from the "gomi vs diaz" thread long ago


please dont use excuses,Diaz is the real deal

I think i made like 400 e-dollars off the Diaz fight. According to Sherdog sources
(So it may not be reliable at all) Gomi didnt take Diaz seriously and didnt train hard.

Gomi definately looked like something was different with him. We could speculate all night as to why, but he just didn't show up prepared for the fight. He gassed after 2 minutes which is just insane.

The fact that Diaz basically had open shots to do whatever he wanted during his stand up, and had to pull out a sub to win, means he really needs to work on his stand up game. If it hadn't been for that sub, Gomi could have possibly won due to a ref stoppage on the cuts.

Gomi basically just gave Diaz free reign to win. I really like Gomi as a fighter and he really should have won this match, but Diaz came prepared and did what he needed to do to win. He took a beating in the process though. His eyes looked terrible and Gomi was just throwing haymakers and landing. Diaz wasn't really that impressive but Gomi was even less impressive tonight.

Too bad really.

People say this every time the fighter they are backing loses; no fighter goes out there 100%. If Gomi needed out of the fight he should have shot his foot so he'd have a real excuse not to fight.

I admit I'm shocked the way the fight went down. I never thought to see Gomi look so gassed. I know Diaz hit him with a loooooot of punches, and I think if Diaz had more power he would have Koed him. I thought Gomi by decision, man was I wrong. I admit I thought Diaz might pull out a sub, but I never thought to see Gomi getting so completely tooled on his feet, even with Diaz's reach advantage. Who would have thought we'd see a rocked and tired Gimno reduced to throwing wild haymakers. Great chin's by both guys. Fight of the night IMO.

Nether Did rich vs silva. There is no real telling, but a fighter shouldn't go in if he is really sick or hurt. You don't see sherk fighting any time soon.

The same could be said about this fight gomi may have been just out classed by a better fighter that night.

Will people even try to consider this as a possibility ?

so much for gomi wanting hughes gsp and bj he got worked by a ufc outcast. i would have never seen that coming I had Gomi all the way. maybe the travel from japan was a factor I would think jet lag could be a problem to fighters.

Okay, enough of the excuses. Gomi was the lesser fighter in this match, pure and simple. Diaz did not get lucky, he simply out performed a more popular fighter; this happens in MMA people! Diaz won in a well deserved fight with a submission that was ******* badass! Diaz deserves to go out and celebrate he earned the win of the night tonight in my opinion. WAR DIAZ!

The one thing I thought what was wrong with Gomi was I don't think he took the fight seriously. I posted something simuliar in another thread, but I think because Pride has fed him so many non titles and miss matches, he just figured he take Diaz the way he does everyone else. Big mistake! When facing someone like Diaz you better come prepared or he will upset you like he did against Lawler. Gomi takes Diaz the next time. Gomi takes diaz 8 time out of 10. As you can see from the first couple minutes. Diaz defiantly took a beating for that win. Great win for Diaz. I betted against him, but I'm happy for his win.

Omg dude, that sub was out of this world! I had to focus in on the replay to really see how he was submitted. Initially I thought he got him with an armbar, but then I realized it was with hsi knee! Oh man, I was going for Gomi in this match, but I couldn't have asked for a better end to this match. This was a good end for true mma fans.

Diaz is no slouch. He is one tough S.O.B. Gomi has no ground game. He lost on a mental error. I don't know if Gomi wins the majority of the fights. I'll say 5/10 even split.

of course,thats the way it should be.....if you're rooting and favor someone that is fine,we all have our picks,but you should always respect the winner no matter what....unless it was a controversy stoppage or decision

Jet lag generally isn't a factor because if a fighter is travelling, they'll usually get into their destination at least 5 or 6 days beforehand. Jet lag is well passed by then. Honestly I think it was a combination of punching himself out and being rocked by Diaz. He looked like he'd been punched silly.

I wanted Gomi to win and never liked Diaz, but gotta give him props for putting Gomi away, and with a spectacular gogoplata finish. I hope the rematch is in Japan though, as I think Gomi will pull it out.

Nick has alot of power in those "weak looking" punches....i dont care who you are that many "baby" punches to the head will scramble your brain





that fight was shocking even thought i had Diaz willing a split decision war....who would of thought they would EVER see Gomi that desperate?

It is possible Gomi was simply outclassed, but from the way he fought (gassing after a few minutes), compared to how he usually fights... it seems very obvious to me that he didn't train hard enough or he was sick or something. Couldn't you see it? He was not very active after a few minutes, his hands were down... I have never seen Gomi so bereft of energy after so little time.

It's not about which fighter you like more, or making excuses... this is just what I saw.

like i said before....i think the only reason Gomi gasses so early was cuz all the Adrenaline pumping though his vaines when he dropped Diaz the first round,he got so excited and probably thought he had it in the bank,and when he realized he didnt even hurt Diaz and your Adrenaline comes to a halt it makes you exhausted...Thats why it is very important to control your adrenaline

^ one thing i have to say is that. he didn't hurt diaz with that punch? I'm sure any punch that drops someone hurts. Gomi thought he koed him, you can see this when he raises his hands in victory. After that, he looked over cuz the bell wasn't ringing.

Also i think Gomi's cardio was not as worked as hard as it should've been. The sign of raising his hands showed that, perhaps he was already exhausted and was hoping to win right there and not go any further. Instead he should've went in for the kill sooner as Diaz was falling down which could've have made all the difference in the fight. I'm not trying to take anything away from Diaz tho, i'm just saying that Gomi should've won if his heart was 100% in the game and not getting ahead of himself.

In the end, hopefully this will wake Gomi up, telling him that his strikes are not always as effective against taller guys with longer reach. At the same time, showing him that he has to be ready to defend his belt, anytime, anywhere and that anyone can take his title away if he doesn't thrive for it.

Note-Gomi did show alot of heart out there with Diaz
