Snapshot of the Day: Tony Hervey and Takanori Gomi

via ca.c.yimg.jp

Tony Hervey sits in his corner while Takanori Gomi is tended to between rounds three and four of their five-round battle at Vale Tudo Japan '09. In a fight which each man came close to ending - Hervey with punches, Gomi with an armbar - the judges awarded Gomi a unanimous decision via the unusual scores of 47-45, 46-45 and 46-44.

Sources inform Bloody Elbow that Gomi was unable to conduct post-fight interviews due to "exhaustion," and may have been taken to the hospital with a rib injury.
