According to Sherdog.com, one of the hottest free agents in the market, Takanori Gomi, is finally set to return, but not with the UFC as originally expected, Gomi has signed with World Victory Road:
The deal will see Gomi debut for the promotion on their March 5 Sengoku card at Yoyogi National Gymnasium No. 1.”
Is there anyway WVR can hurry up and sign Nick Diaz? The signing of Gomi is definitely a blow to the UFC. Adding the Pride lightweight champion to the UFC’s ranks would have made for some huge fights.
Now, all we can do is hope that WVR puts Gomi in the ring with some quality opponents. And that we can somehow see those fights on televsion.
