Takanori Gomi with plans to fight in the United States

After rediscovering his victories at Shooto Japan, the Japanese idol Takanori Gomi already aims for higher flights. Although the announced agreement to fight at Affliction 3 did not happen, the “Fireball Kid” states that his next fight will take place in the United States and has several offers, including from the UFC.

“My next fight will be in the United States. Now, we have several proposals from some promoters. We are considering all these offers. I'm willing to have a fight in America as soon as possible. I want to show the American fans my fighting spirit.” “We even have an offer from the UFC and we are in the middle of the discussion”, said the fighter who intends to train at Randy Couture and Wanderlei Silva

“I'm going to keep my gym at my gym (in Kanagama, Japan). Occasionally I would like to train at Xtreme Couture and the Wanderlei Silva”, said the fighter who hits back at critics who claim that his motivation to fight is gone.


“After beating (Takashi) Nakakura my motivation is maximum. I can prove the critics wrong. I'm looking forward to seeing my fans. You can see “Real Fireball” in the United States soon”, concluded the fighter in an interview with the American portal MMA Mania.
