Gomi, Kid Yamamoto And Others At UFC 94

Quote:
There are always a number of stars that come out for any UFC event, but tonight in Las Vegas the royalty of Japanese mixed martial arts has come out to see Georges St. Pierre battle B.J. Penn.

Former Pride lightweight champion Takanori Gomi, prized bantamweight and featherweight fighter, Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto, Olympic Gold medalist Satoshi Ishii, and Caol Uno are all in attendance at UFC 94 to see the action at tonight's show.

UFC President Dana White has made it no secret that he wouldn't mind landing any or all of the above competitors. White has also mentioned top rated middleweight competitor, Yoshohiro Akiyama, as a fighter the promotion would like to add as well.

"Kid" Yamamoto was seen several times this week in Dana's blog, and the top ranked Japanese fighter stopped for a photo opportunity in the Octagon with the president.

Yeah, I posted several pics in the "Funny Pics" thread in the Smacktalk section, of KID and Faber hangin out at the WEC afterparty.

I have a feeling that fight is going down soon times.

AS for Gomi and Akiyama, well anyone knows I'd kill to see those dudes fight anywhere, and frankly I don't care if they win or lose.

I'd really like to see Gomi and Akiyama in the UFC. KID vs Faber would be fun as well.

Gomi vs. Tyson Griffin is what I'm hoping for.
