    I would go with option B.

    I think Sherk would be Gomi though.

    I think Florrian would be a competitive fight against Gomi too.

    stop saying shit I agree with.

    To add, there is no clear cut #1 in LW. With differing weights classes within LW, and a lack of cross org matches and #1, #2 matches we are kind of left up to guessing. but to say he is either #1 or washed up, or a pussy is dumb.

    Diaz was waxing him, Florrian is way better standing.

    And don't give me any bullshit about something being wrong with Gomi. He just got beat on.

    I would try to make the case that if Diaz could make 155(I've got to be his size and I made it) he could be in the top 5.

    WW != LW

    never said Gomi was #1. I would keep him top 10 for sure, and I dont think he's washed up or one dimensional. Unless he gets a fire to fight again I think he is plateaued and will continue to be schooled on the ground.

    Penn is way too much of an X factor to be included on that list.

    So is your nutriding of him trolling or legit? :o
     
  15. Florian's only stoppages from strikes were due to cuts from single elbows.

    He has stadium-champ mid kicks, but nothing else that I've seen. Clowning on Mishima standing isn't a huge achievement. The dude is seriously afraid of getting hit.

    I don't think Gomi works hard enough to keep up with the top competition these days...we will see though soon enough, I thought he would have signed with an organization already

    I'd be disappointed to see him go to K-1, but at least they have been building up their LW division, there are some good tests for him there (JZ, Shaolin, Miyata, etc)

    Gomi would destroy florian.
     
  18. I believe he's already officially signed with K-1

    He'd be more popular in Japan but let's be fair, he called out Hughes/GSP/BJ Penn who are in the UFC but he's come to terms with the fact that they would all embarrass him

    So was Sherk guilty of using some roids?
     
  23. all signs point to yes so far. He has an appeal coming up in a few weeks, so we'll see how that goes.

    Gomi has been like Rampage of the past -- when he brings in his A-game, he's a fucking beast

    however, his training, motivation, whatever has been spotty lately, so you never know which Gomi comes into the ring
