I'm really hoping Gomi wins but I think Diego's ability to take damage and get the takedown will win him the fight. But I do think it wins FOTN due to Gomi landing big shots and Diego being able to take them and keep on coming.

I disagree that they're overrated. THe current forms of Gomi and Sanchez are both a bit past prime. But tthey both offer something good for every fighter.

Sanchez is not the most skilled fighter in the world (he tends to throw out the gameplan and brawl) he's a high intensity fighter who gives guys troubles, he's got a great chin, he's got underrated grappling (top game, not bottom) his striking to my knowledge has never been said to be great. He's an okay striker.

Gomi is past prime for sure, but he's been looking good last few fights. His cardio needs work. But to say Gomi is overrated in the striking department is horse shit. He hits harder than any other LW, and puts a lot of pressure on you, and throws big body shots. He strugles with guys who are more technical because he's a bit wild with his punches, and throws wide often times. His grappling is a bit underrated too, he hasn't looked good in the UFC but back in pride he showed great submission skills. Not the best, but more than most give him credit for. He has good TDD as well.

I've been wanting to see KJ Noons vs Gomi lately, I think it would be a fun fight to watch.

Meh i think both of their striking games suck. Which may make for a good fight.

Gomi has basically 1 strike. He is crouched over like a hunchback and his power hand usually comes up a foot short. Sure he has Ko power and a chin, but he isn't a good striker. There is little shame in it at this point, but this was obviously when he fought Nate Diaz. On the ground Nate schooled him and everyone realized he would. So that left Gomi with 1 chance, striking. And Nate made him look like a rookie in that department. Vs. any disciplined, solid technical striker, Gomi will look like crap standing these days.

Sanchez has never been a good striker. His volume and aggression do him well vs. other average to below average strikers. But he usually gets beat up pretty bad on the feet. His strikes have little rhyme or reason, it is just a cluster fock of nothing.

Yeah Gomi got tooled by Nate in every area of the fight. But Nate is amazing, Gomi is past prime. And Nate's reach is a huge factor in that fight.. Gomi has fast hands, and is a good striker, not the best but good.

Diego seems to be having trouble making weight. This just got a little more interesting..

I hope this doesn't effect his performance against Gomi. Sanchez is one of my favorite fighters. I wouldn't want to imagine him losing a fight because of cardio issues. He's always seemed to be above that sort of thing.

It does seem crazy to make Deigo travel drop down in weight come in off a long layover and fight on another guys home turf but...

I can't pick Gomi for this one. He's only lost to WW wrestlers (including Penn).
