Takanori Gomi rebounded from recent back-to-back losses and picked up his first knockout win via strikes in two-and-a-half years with a victory over Takashi Nakakura earlier today at Shooto's latest event, "The Final Tradition."

Gomi (30-5) stopped Shooto star Takashi Nakakura (11-3-1) and snapped his five-fight win streak with the second-round TKO.

It was a must-win fight for Gomi, who was once arguably the world's top lightweight fighter.

while that was a nice KO, and a "need" win for gomi, he still didnt look to be in top shape.

Tough loss for Ishida, but Hirota has proven to have dynamite in his hands. Hopefully the "endless fighter" can rebound because he should have been in the title picture in Strikeforce.
