    i pick against shinya a lot, and i seem to always be wrong. so i guess ill have to pick aoki. they will prob have melendez vs aoki to see who gets to challenge gomi for the title

    I think Gomi's keys to winning this fight are to avoid the ground, especially Aoki's guard. Gomi would need to use his wrestling and striking to prevent takedowns and he would also have to use his striking to keep Aoki at a distance so they don't clinch after which Aoki would likely pull guard.

    gomi by more skills

    anyways i dont think well see a title match next year...but the LWGP should be really good...i used to think there wasn't enough competition for gomi after he KO'd sakurai...but melendez and aoki would both make great oppoents

    Aoki is damn good, but I think that Gomi would take it.

    I'm inclined to go with Gomi, but this can easily go either way. I wouldn't mind seeing gomi lose, though. The little prick is rather full of himself lately.
