"I have a fight scheduled for September, in the Sengoku x Dream event, only I still don't have an opponent. I couldn't fight at the end of last year at the fusion of the two big Japanese events, but this year they're doing it in September and I'm already preparing, although I don't have an opponent. I believe I will face Michihiro Omigawa who is fighting for Dream and is the only guy to beat me, so I think they should give me the rematch." - Sengoku featherweight champ Marlon Sandro speaking to Tatame. Sengoku doesn't currently have an event scheduled for September, so it seems likely that Sandro is referring to Dream 16 on September 25th, an event which is rumored to be a "mega-card" for primetime TV.

I've been back from vacation for a few days. I've started to train wrestling and boxing, and I'm dedicating a lot of time to my pupils. I divide my time between Kugayama and Kokushikan University. I'm keeping in good shape, but I don't have anything lined up in the next few months... In truth, I'm always negotiating. But I'm not rushing to fight. My son will be born at the beginning of next year... I can fight or not. It depends on my will. You've had talks with Dana White? This was after the fight with Nakakura. I believed that I would fight in the UFC, but there were some questions that kept me from fighting at the time. I'm sorry to say. -- Takanori Gomi speaking to Gong Kakutogi Thanks to Lucas on the PVT forums for the translation.
