For those who didnt already know, Gono was kicked into next week at Sengoku 9

From sherdog's news,

Gono was stretchered out several minutes later, and post-event reports from the hospital claimed the Grabaka fighter had been diagnosed with a concussion, possible brain hemorrhaging and damage to his neck from landing awkwardly on the ropes. While Gono will be kept overnight for observation, he was reported to be alert and coherent.

I, like many others, am big fan of Gono and im upset about this

Hopefully the injuries aren't as serious as reported, but if they are I REALLY hope he recovers.

and even if he does recover, is it time to call it quits? a brain hemorrhage is some serious stuff and Im guessing it effects you for a while afterward

get well Gono :(

I didn't hear about this at all, and i didn't catch the Segoku stream so this is news to me. My thoughts and (if I was a religious man) my prayers are with him and his family. Hard to say whether it is time to call it quits. Gono is competitive in pretty much every bout he is in, but hasn't been the luckiest guy in the word when it come to match ups. To hang them up or not is obviously only for him to decide. Gono will always have a fan in me, especially for introducing me to DJ OZMA. Get well soon Gono!

I understand he wore a suit for his ring entrance. Surprisingly conservative.

Yeah i was surprised as well, plus he took like 2 mins to take it off ...I dont know how that would go over in the UFC haha. And as the announcer said his name he's the one who actually pronounced is nickname lol. Never know what to expect of the Japanese promotions !

In the end though, he got Knocked The F*ck Out!

Uhhh, normally this comment would be acceptable, but Gono potentially suffered some serious injuries man. Not cool.
