News that Takanori Gomi received his key to the octagon spread like a fireball last weekend, and faster still was word that Kenny Florian could be his first charge.

The news fanned from a posting on the official Twitter account of Florian's broadcast gig, ESPN's "MMA Live," and in a conversation with MMAjunkie.com (mmajunkie.com) Monday night, there's smoke where there's fire.

"It's a fight that I think I've been wanting to do for a long time, ever since Gomi was the best over in PRIDE, so Gomi's obviously a legend in the sport and those are the kind of guys that I want to challenge myself with," Florian said from Los Angeles, where he was working with ESPN on an undisclosed project. "The quickest road back to the title is beating great fighters like Gomi."

Florian is the man one of my favorite fighters I'd like to see Gomi shock the world and knock him out but alas I can't have everything in the world if this fight happens have to go Florian via 2nd round sub

Give him the fight Dana, so he can beat the hell out of Gomi. Florian would be better anywhere the fight went, and would take it by clear cut decision or a late stoppage IMO.
