GOMI STILL HAS KO POWER. WOW
DUde could have easily ended the fight after that HUGE PUNCH

idiot should not have kept returning into yachi's guard.

Gomi had a serious chance of winning.

Serious power right there

Nice setup on that triangle but Gomi didnt show too much awareness, especially after two failed attempts earlier. Pretty much gave it away trying to break wrist control. He proably doesnt train much lately and relies on his fading athleticism to cash out his last few paychecks, just like Fedor.

RE: GOMI STILL HAS KO POWER. WOW
I haven't watched too many Gomi fights, but here is how I remember his strategy:

- Striking exchanges with no defense in mind.
-- If you start winning, swing wider and get the KO
--- If you start losing, blast Double into guard
---- High-pace GnP from guard, especially with hits to the body
----- If the opponent starts breaking down, tripod up and start hammering the head for a TKO
------ If the opponent starts getting close with submissions, or you tire, back out and restart the loop

Something about this strategy causes him to slowly tire over the fight. Maybe it's all of the swimming type motions wearing out his shoulders.
I've never seen a good RD.3 Gomi.

RE: GOMI STILL HAS KO POWER. WOW
he was known as a master GNPer up until the BJ PENN fight

then he became a fearsome striker

I think he relied a lot on his chin and his insane KO power.

now that his chin is gone, he's pretty much shot as a fighter

just physically by the way he looks he hasn't really aged even though he is almost 40

he still looks very young

RE: GOMI STILL HAS KO POWER. WOW
gomi is an idiot i just rewatched the fight

he should have never entered his guard esp. with a guy with long legs. if you have stubby yoshida type legs then yeah.. but long legs are always dangerous.

he should have let the dude stood back up to go for some more standing blows.

it was obvious his power was much greater than YACHI

gomi lands ONE SHOT and yachi was on queer street

That didn't even look like an mma fight from the past 10 years. Just a brawl that ended with some purple belt level guard work. Very sloppy.

That wrist-shove triangle setup was super clean. Better than I could have done it. He might not be some Shinya Aoki / Charles Olivera, but I think we'll be seeing plenty more of that guy.

RE: GOMI STILL HAS KO POWER. WOW
he's a high level fighter for sure.

reminds me a bit of gil melendez

Gomi can still be a contender in Japan if he just FOCUSES.

his body condition still seems ok

Why not just let it go? If the motivation isn't there, why continue?

It's a sad life for fighters who devote everything, then don't get out of the game when things start to go downhill for them.

The guys who come from BJJ, Judo, Muay Thai, Boxing can all go back to their disciplines and community and teach, do personal training, run tournaments, sell gear, or be part of it in some way.

The 'pure MMA' athletic guys who fought through losing streaks in their late 30's are the ones who end up stranded and miserable. Very sad to see.
