Ok, the final match is: Takanori Gomi vs. BJ Penn (just barely). Will it be a repeat of ROTR4?

I'm going to go with Penn. By the way I can't wait till the Welterweight Tournament. I wish I found out about this earlier just found out about it 5 minutes ago.

Thanks for the feedback folks. I was originally planning to not do another tournament as I was getting only a few responses and the format will work a lot better with more people participating. However business picked up and since I got a positive resonse I will do another tournament after this one finishes. I'll gladly take suggestions for what weight division to do next (along with the Gomi vs. Penn vote ). So far I've got one call for welterweight and since it's the next weight class up the ladder I will most likely do that next, but by all means chime in if you want to. Final round of the LW tournament goes till Saturday night.

Penn is a bad match up for Gomi. I dont see this fight going any different.

This is such a tough match to decide for me. On one hand we already know BJ can beat Gomi because he's already done it, plus at LW BJ is just such a beast. On the other hand Gomi has improved so much since their first fight and he is so explosive. If Gomi lets his nerves get to him and takes the cautious approach like he did last time against Aurelio, BJ will maul him, but if Gomi lets his hands go and fights aggressively he stands a good chance of winning. If Penn trains hard and comes in in good shape, he's a favorite to beat anybody at this weight (and anyone not named Georges St. Pierre at 170), but which BJ Penn will show up? Since Gomi is the higher seed this fight will take place under Pride rules, thus the 10 min. round. BJ Penn's cardio has been suspect in the past and may have cost him the GSP match.

"The Fireball Kid" by TKO 8:42 1st round.

this one is tough to choose cause bj is simply amazing. but gomi has improved so much since their first fight. for gomi to win he'd need to be agressive and take the fight to bj. i really do think he can outstrike bj now. he was way too tentative in the first fight and i think thats why he lost the fight. like sirdilznik said, if it takes place in pride...i got gomi. but if not, i think bj would take it.

i'm gonna go with gomi on a whim, i think he has improved enough to win this fight.
