Penn and Ellenberger failed to knock Sanchez out, so I don't see Gomi doing it. I'm not saying Gomi couldn't knock Sanchez out, but I just see it as being unlikely.

I'd be upset if Diego lost this fight. It's a great match up for him. Gomi has a punchers chance if Diego gets too aggressive, but Diego's granite chin should hold up. I just wonder when that chin will begin to weaken. He seems to take a lot of damage, and we've seen the toll that has taken in other fighters.

I hope Diego gets the finish. He seems to be better almost everywhere at this point in my opinion, and his conditioning and pace is the icing. I see him breaking Gomi down and finishing him in the later rounds. Looking forward to this one.
