Sorry man I didn't mean to tick you off. I wasn't trying to make anything personal. I do admit that the Pride lightweights are badass, but I just think over time, the UFC will prove itself. That's all I meant.

I think Sherk will be to fast and strong for Gomi.



Thats what they said about gomi/kawajiri and we all know what happened there.

Its funny with champions like Fedor, Liddell, Gomi, Anderson Silva, tim silvia with body types that arent chiseled like body builders so people automatically assume that buff dudes are more atheletic than they are.

We must face the facts that muscle mass does mean not overall strength. People like Sean Sherk who body build tend to be stronger at isolation movements than compound kinetic movements which involve the entire body than say just bicep curls.

IMO Sherk is underrated because he hasnt faced top level competiton like Gomi has been facing, but I bet as time goes on with new UFC LW aquistions and guys like Joe Stevenson improving their craft we are gonna see the Muscle shark move up fast.

IMO Sherk would win UFC rules, no knee strikes on the ground, Push Gomi up against the cage, bend his spine and make him lose power, lay and pray for a dec. victory. But pride rules with yellow cards for inactivity and standing them up right away I gotta give it to Gomi.

I think a Gomi versus Guillard fight would be the best matchup. I think they could put on a really good war and it would really shake up the lightweight division.


Gomi would be throttled by BJ...COME ON!

While, I also think BJ would beat Gomi again, that first fight was a long time ago. I think Gomi has gotten better. I really hope this happens.
