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.

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?
