Guida vs Gomi Bout, Official for UFC 125
It's a big UFC 125 fight between The Fireball Kid and The Carpenter. Fans are definitely in for a steaming hot New Year's day tourney, as the Guida vs Gomi bout is added to the UFC 125 card.
Clay Guida confirmed, during an appearance in ESPN 1000’s MMA Tonight last Sunday, that he’ll be facing Takanori Gomi at UFC 125. Guida already gave a hint about this upcoming match in his tweeter last month. According to his tweet, his next fight will be a “big one” versus a man with “a lot of power in his hands”.
“[Gomi was] One of my favorite fighters growing up watching MMA…I look up to him, and I’m going to look forward to picking him up off the ground after I ground and pound him into the canvas.”
This year, Guida has gone 2-0 after gaining submission victories against Shannon Gugerty and Rafael Dos Anjos. Takanori Gomi, on the other hand, was choked out by Kenny Florian in his UFC debut last March. But Gomi was able to redeem himself after knocking Tyson Griffin in UFC Live: Jones vs Matyunshenko event.View Article Source »
