Takanori Gomi will soon have something in common with Josh Neer, Koji Oishi and Joe Hurley.

Ultimate Fighting Championship officials Tuesday announced that Gomi (Pictured; file photo) will face Nate Diaz in a lightweight contest at UFC 135 on Sept. 24, placing the Japanese star on the list of those who have squared off against both fighting Diaz brothers of Stockton, Calif.

Gomi met older brother Nick Diaz at a February 2007 Pride Fighting Championships event in Las Vegas and was submitted with a stunning second-round gogoplata. Two months later, the result was changed to a no-decision by the Nevada State Athletic Commission when Diaz’s post-fight drug screen showed elevated levels of Delta-9-THC, the active ingredient in marijuana...

I'll die laughing if Nate catches him in a gogoplata too. But it's a win/win, I like both fighters.

Should be a solid fight. I think Gomi takes it by UD.

if Gomi loses, i think hes cut..
if Diaz loses, what will he do next having failed against the upper middle tier of WW and against a fringe top 15 UFC LW...maybe he should try 145 lol

Gomi has not gotten any easy fights, I expect Nate to win by guillitine in the 2nd or 3rd.

He gets cut, or relegated to Strikeforce.

I'm looking forward to this fight, just the same way I look forward to every Nate Diaz fight, in hopes of him getting dominated. Gomi can take a lot heavier shot than Diaz is capable of, and can bully Nate around. I think Gomi takes this.

Out of curiosity...do you dislike Nate for the same reason I dislike Karo? I may have asked before.

135 is going to be really legit! Nate will come out with an even bigger chip on his shoulder after his last showing. I expect him to ruin Gomi. I like the Fireball Kid, but not in this fight.
