    That's awesome, I hope that Diaz beats Gomi...would stir up the rankings a bit I'm sure. :rofl:

    It would be hilarious if Diaz knocked out the "iron-jawed" Gomi with one of his awkward loopy punches a la Robbie Lawler :rofl:

    despite a reach advantage, diaz is cocky enough to stand toe-to-toe with gomi. if it happens, i just hope gomi doesn't take diaz for a chump because of his record or whatever and works on his wrestling/takedown defense for this particular fight

    pretty interesting...i think 160 is perfect fit for diaz...170 was a little bit too big for him to stay competitive at the very top...i doubt diaz will go for a takedown...gomi could possibly go for them...but i see a boxing match

    no, I've seen that video, thanks :hsugh:

    you know there are cases where someone with an "iron jaw" has been KO'd

    i.e. cabbage

    Mark Hunt is one of the few cases that has been able to retain his iron status for the most part, Fujita was worn down pretty easily by Wanderlei and Gomi hasn't been hit really hard repeatedly

    Anyone else think that Diaz might be alittle too light for this fight? I also notice that I see Barnett on that poster, so we might see him fighting in America again.

    Quick question about Barnett, how is he still the Open Weight King of Pancrase? Has there just not been a challenger in that long?

    diaz doesn't really cut much weight to make 170, and gomi cuts a decent amount to make 160

    i figure they walk around at nearly the same weight :dunno:

    If Diaz could stand and exchange with Riggs, he can stand with anybody.

    I Honestly don't see Gomi having a chance against Diaz, he's simply out-matched.
