UFC on Versus 2 Preview: Takanori Gomi Talks American Fighters and Tyson Griffin

"[Kenny Florian was] The first step in me learning about the American fight style; he was a real comer and he really took it to me. So I sort of got a gauge on how the American fighters are going to fight."

"Then I was at the UFC Expo later [lost to Shane Roller] and that sort of cemented the knowledge. So I think I really have it down how the Americans are going to bring it to me."

"[Tyson Griffin] He's completely different than Florian, the first guy I took on. But he doesn't loose anything to him in terms of aggressiveness. He's very aggressive."

"I wouldn't say he's the most strategically based fighter ...coming with some sort of big strategy. He's just going to come and come and come and really bring it. So that's going to be a challenge."
