Takanori Gomi out for the remainder of 2009

Quote:
Former PRIDE lightweight champion Takanori Gomi has stated on his personal blog that he will not fight this year since his new child is coming.

“These days have been happy for me. I’m going to get married and it makes new sense in my life. The days in Koganezaki (resort) and its beautiful beaches made me think a lot. After all, a new member of the family is coming to give us happiness. If it will be a boy his name will be Isamu, if it will be a girl her name will be Aimi,” he wrote.

“The expectation of becoming a father is such an unique sensation and I want to make the most of any moment. Therefore fighting isn’t the goal for this year anymore,” he added.

The talented fighter was scheduled to fight at Affliction “Trilogy” until the organization folded last month. Now he has other things on his mind than competing.

“I’m going to be a father and I must not fight in 2009 unless there is a change of plans. However, my intention is spending more time attending to the pregnancy of Chiaki (future wife) as soon we get back from the vacation,” he said.

“I won’t stop training because I need to keep in shape but I haven’t thought about competition. I’m glad my fans have understood my choice. Being a father is more important than winning any tournament and I want to live it intensively. Thanks to everyone who has sent messages of care.”

Gomi has a record of 30-5-0 and was often argued to be the world’s top lightweight when he competed in PRIDE FC.

But has suffered patchy form of late and is 1-1 in 2009, 3-2 in his last five outings. Six fights ago he was submitted by Nick Diaz via gogoplata, but the loss was changed to a no contest when Diaz tested positive for marijuana.
Aww man. . You can't blame him for wanting to be with his kid.

I hope he comes back in 2010 with the motivation to win again! .

That's nice, hopefully he enjoys being a father.

With that said, damn you Gomi, why did you have to have sex?

TheMicrowave can only hope to improve
Hey man, maybe he has one of those "needy" girlfriends. She might be the type to really play on her pregnancy as a sort of disability. "Honey, I feel sick .... can you make dinner"? "Honey I don't feel good, can you wash the dishes"? I've been through that shit.
