So that explains why he looked outta shape. Gomi has more potential than he realizes I think, even at this stage in his career he's able to beat good fighters. I just don't think he has anything to offer the top top of the division.

Gomi vs Lauzon would make for a great fight

Love to see Gomi compete, true warrior, but I don't think he has what it takes to dismantle the like of Henderson, Thomson, Pettis...

He looked skinnier than normal. Where'd his muscles go?

I'd put money on him if he quit drinking, really trained his ass off, and if the fight was taking place in Japan.
