Former Pride lightweight ace Takanori Gomi hopes to give fans something to remember him by in his final Japanese bout, but King of the Cage champ Tony Hervey has promised to give the "Fireball Kid" a taste of Detroit. Photo via GBRing.
Participants for Sustain's Vale Tudo Japan '09 tipped the scales at Tokyo's Garden Palace Hotel today, and all fighters were on weight for tomorrow's festivities at JCB Hall.
Of the main carders, only "Pequeno" Nogueira seemed to have trouble shedding pounds. The ex-lightweight ace was absent from the pre-fight press conference and interview session, and had to fully disrobe on the scale to make the 65kg limit for his non-title bout with current champ Takeshi Inoue.
Stay tuned to Bloody Elbow for full VTJ '09 coverage; we'll have live results beginning at 5AM ET Friday morning.
