Affliction Trilogy! Gomi Vs. Cooper?

MMAWeekly reports that a fight between Takanori Gomi and Brett Cooper could happen at Affliction 3 on August 1st. If it happens it could be at 165 pounds. Cooper is 8-1 in his last 9 and has won by TKO/Submission in 7 of them.

Other SENGOKU/DREAM fighters participating on the event are Josh Barnett, SENGOKU Middleweight champion Jorge Santiago, and DREAM Middleweight GP winner Gegard Mousasi.

Speaking of Gomi, he recently met the man who changed his life, former WBA Super Flyweight Champion and former WBA Bantamweight Interim Champion, Hideki Todaka (21-4-1). Will Gomi possibly do some special training at Todaka’s gym?

Update: Doesn’t look like the fight will happen.

    Id love to see Gomi fight but I had to go look up Cooper to see who he was.

    The card is excellent so far.
    Gomi would just be going to the buffer a third time.

    I hope that was a joke. Gomi can kick anyone in the top 10’s ass 8 out of 10 times; including my hero Kawajiri 😥
