UFC 144: Takanori Gomi vs George Sotiropoulos announced for Feb. 26 in Japan   [View Full Version]
Budgellism » Posted 4/8/07 11:45:00AM

"The Fireball Kid" is headed back home.

That's because Takanori Gomi has been booked to get busy against jiu-jitsu ace George Sotiropoulos at UFC 144 on Feb. 26, 2012, from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

The promotion brought word of the pending match-up a short time ago.

Both fighters are looking to rebound from recent losses, particularly Gomi, who has been submitted in both of his last two outings against Clay Guida and Nate Diaz, respectively.

In fact, the Japanese import is just 1-3 inside the Octagon, which means it's time to live up to the hype or he may not be making the trip back to the U.S. early next year.

Solid Match Making. Rite now i would lean toward G-sot. But Gomi could catch him on the feet.

I think George will work it too the ground soon and get the sub. Don't think he wants to get tko'd.

Good to see Gomi get another fight though.

Gomi could knock him out, but don't think it happens. Would love to see him get the win in Japan.

It all comes down to whether George can get the takedown.

Sot's chin is as bad as Gomi's sub defense. Maybe even worse.

If Gomi doesnt knock G-Sot out before it hits the ground then George will get the tap!!!

I sorta feel like the ONLY reason he is getting another fight is because this is gonna be in Japan.
