Sanchez should take this fight with his pace and cardio but he also has to use his well rounded all MMA skills. If he does that then I cannot see Gomi having a chance.
If Sanchez decides to brawl with Gomi then it could be bad. Sanchez has a great chin and heart but if Gomi lands one of his power hooks then Sanchez will get his lights turned off.

I want Gomi to win, he is one of my favourite MMA fighters of all time. Come on you underdog!!

If Gomi doesn't land a big shot, I have a hard time seeing him winning this one.

i know BJ dropped Sanchez and completely dominateded him from that point on, but BJ has the kind of power that most LHWs don't even poses.. Gomi may have similar power but is no where near as good as BJ..

Gomi also doesn't have the cardio to hang with the pace that Sanchez will bring.. Diego has a hard chin too so even if Gomi lands a bomb he is gonna have a hard time actually finishing Sanchez.

I predict Gomi winning the first via landing some hard shots especially since he is the better striker.. but after that he wont be able to stop Diego's pace and he will get overwhelmed. So Diego wins a solid UD or even a mid-late third round stoppage..

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

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.

Very exciting fight, big fan of both guys! If Diego fights smart he'll take this easily.

Just a question stun gun, this isn't intended to knock on you at all, but do you always pick the Asian to win if one is fighting by default? I know you've stated you believe in them, which is cool and all. I'd like to see a hungry Gomi fight Sanchez, it would be a crazy fight. It's just hard to know if Gomi will come in hungry. If you got some inside information on that, I'd like to hear it. I'd kinda feel "meh" if Diego beat on an unmotivated Gomi, despite being a Sanchez fan. I like seeing legit wins.

No I don't always go for the Asians by default. Though I am a bi fan of the Asian fighters.

In all honesty this a tough fight for Gomi because of Sanchez has good cardio. But I see it this way, Gomi has looked better and better for his last two fights. Yeah Sanchez is better than both. But this fight is in Japan, Gomi has a fire under him right now, he wouldn't be talking the way he is if he wasn't He believes he can make a run at the title again. He's motivated. If he worked his Cardio then I think he will be able to stop Sanchez. Gomi has had issues in the past with his grappling but those losses were all unmotivated Gomi.

Sanchez should win with cardio. And he has a chin, so it isn't like if Gomi lands it is lights out. They are both highly overrated. Both of their striking games are highly overrated, but Diego can win doing other things.
