Of course it would matter where the fight took place but what if it was in a neurtal area.

If they fought lightweight Gomi would kill him.
Gomi is week when on the ground- Diego is good on the ground but no Penn. Standing gomi is a monster and his takedown defense is adequate for the task.

I agree Gomi is a great techincal striker and even with Sanchez begin unbeaten i still feel that he is not that good

Gomi's standup would be to much for him but then again everbody in the ufc that he has fought was supposed to be to much for him.

I don't think that Diego sanchez has fought a fighter the caliber of Gomi (other than maybe Karo Parysian). With that in mind I would say that Gomi would win hands down because Diego wouldn't know how to handle his punching power.

Why,WHY,WHY although i think that i could go either way i think Diego would be trouble for anyone in the world at 170lb the kid has some very good skills one or the other Diego by GNP.

Gomi's great but I don't think he could handle Sanchez in any location. Diego's style is perfect for a fighter like Gomi, unless he tried to pull a Tito to prove he could stand with a great striker. I'd say Diego by sub round 2.

I think Sanchez would have a good shot if the fought in the Octagon, but if it was in a Pride ring with Pride rules i dont see how he could beat Gomi...

hmm i dunno what you mean but my syntax in that post was horrible..

people believed mitsohiru ishida would beat gomi, because he is an excellent wrestler, with great takedowns, in his previous fights he manhandled his opponents by GnP. This could basically be said for diego, but i don't see diego being as strong or as quick as ishida. gomis hands are too fast for both and has amazing takedowns. basing my opinion from the aurelio fight #2, gomi knows enough on the ground to get back up, same like chuck liddlel.

now on the other hand, what the HECK is a kumb nuts?

I think this fight would look alot like gomi vs penn, i dont think gomi would have a chance against the ufc's top lightweight and welterweights.

GOMI = OVERRATED

gomi vs. penn was over 3 years ago. i think gomi has improved vastly since then. also, sanchez outweighs gomi by a good 15 lbs. if they fought at 160 id have to go with gomi, he's pretty unstoppable at that weight.

i think GOmi will take this one, he is pretty good on the ground, even tho diego is a monster on the floor but i can also see gomi winning over a KO, only if a punch lands clearly!!! :D

I think the fac t that he has fought Diaz, Karo ( very good fighter's, especially Karo)at a higher weight should definately count for a lot.

Gomi would win but it would be a good fight.

Gomi's weakness is being on the bottem of a BJJ fighter, and he is a bad match up for all wrestlers!

Gomi by KO

As much as I don't like Sanchez I would have to pick him. He's bigger and is better on the ground than Gomi. His hands have improved vastly over his last few fights. I think he would GNP Gomi into a Dec.

Im gonna say Gomi by KO.But we havent seen much of Diegos Chin so we dont know. Still Gomi would find a way to KO him.
