Several people over at Sherdog who watched Gomi warmup today were saying he doesn't look right and reportedly someone spoke with a Pride official who told him that Gomi either a knuckle or a finger on his hand while training a week ago. Take it with a grain of salt but this could be a huge development.


Current light-weight champion, Takanori Gomi, made his entrance amidst loud cheers from the audience. He greeted the crowd in Japanese, claiming that his purpose here is to win at the upcoming match against Nick Diaz and make a great show. Gomi immediately grabbed the fan's attention with a bit of humor as he mounted the ring with his gloves and said, "I can't fight with two right-handed gloves." Despite his rather short workout punching mitts, his appearance left the crowd satisfied. Gomi was pursued by a herd of fans asking for autographs and photo opportunities as he stepped down from the ring.


Why would he bring two right handed gloves? That makes zero sense.

So what is injured? That pic looks weird, might just be a awkward stance. Is there a red splotch on his right knuckle? Might be nothin. Who knows. the first post didnt really specifiy. If Gomi is hurt it could affect his fight with Diaz...... and my bankroll.

I know the feeling. Try being a Joe Riggs fan. Its hard work. He gets your hopes up, then somethin bad happens. Up and down, up and down. wow its a lot of work.

I feel the same way about BJ Penn. Until this Gomi rumor is confirmed ( probably after thge fight if ever) I won't put a lot of stock in it.

nah! if its just a knuckle or finger it wont be so bad. hes gonna hit diaz in the face a dozen times and hurt it anyways so it wont make that much of a difference. its not like diaz can work on it to gain an advantage. theres gonna be so much striking in this fight all four hands are gonna be hurting for a while.

hopefully it, if true, it won't affect things that much. his right hand looks red, but it's hard to say. nick is willing to strike (i think, he usually is) so he could numb it real fast or it could be a decider. hard to say wether it will have more of an affect (say than rich's against the crow) because it happened a bit out in prep for the fight rather than in it. my big pick is gomi, but I think it should be fight of the night.
