I found this on Sherdog, thought it was interesting.
"It was announced today that the UFC On Versus 2 event with Gomi and Okami will be aired in Japan on PPV and on a TV-channel. Akiyama will commentate.
Gomi: "Recently when sparring (striking), my feeling of balance has returned to the times when I fought Kawajiri and Nakakura."
"As a matter of fact I sparred with Tyson Griffin once when I went to Randy Couture's gym. I always thought that I would fight him someday but I'm surprised that it'll be so soon. I have thought of him as my rival since that time."
Okami knows he's in a tough fight but will win and take a step-up. This fight and possibly another one and I think he expects a title shot."
The pictures further emphasize to me how badly Akiyama needs to drop down to WW. Okami looks gigantic beside him, while he and Gomi look almost the same size.
