  1. Realwun says:

    That was a big fight at the time. Gomi only has 3 losses (4 if you include the No Contest with Diaz)total and Aurelio is the only person to beat him in the first round, pretty easily too. He beat a basically the matt hughes of pride for that weight class.

  2. You're right about the comparison, and Gomi is a cocky penis just like Matt Hughes too.

  3. Another quality signing by the UFC.
