Report: Kenny Florian vs Takanori Gomi Possible for UFC Fight Night 22

via dreamfighters.com

Fighters Only reports:

Takanori Gomi could make his UFC debut against unsuccessful lightweight challenger Kenny Florian at UFC Fight Night 22, Fighters Only was told this week. The event takes place in North Carolina on March 31st.

...


It’s a possibility, and at least one source we have spoken to believes it is likely. There is nothing concrete as yet - the fight is not even signed - but it’s a match that is sure to please Spike viewers if it tops Fight Night 22.

This would be a pretty interesting and risky booking choice for the UFC and Gomi. But they might as well throw him in at the deep end. They brought him in to contend for the title ASAP, not slowly build towards a run.

Gomi's fall from grace in the past couple of years has been as precipitous as Cro Cop's but American fans don't know that and if he can get a KO win over the very dangerous Kenny Florian -- he would immediately be a serious and compelling title challenger for B.J. Penn.
