Gomi Ends Up In Affliction?! Vs. Rafaello Oliveira

It looks like Gomi’s next destination is Affliction. A new fight has been added on the Affliction Trilogy website. Takanori Gomi will take on Rafaello Oliveira, whose only loss is a doctor stoppage in a fight in which he had the upper hand.

On Japanese MMA site Kamipro recently it said that Strikeforce is not interested in Affliction’s money game (regarding Gomi), so they have abandoned hope of him participating in Strikeforce this summer. It seems that a knowledgeable MMA (and not a Japanese manager from Gomi’s side, who probably doesn’t know Gomi’s worth in North America) representative re-negotiated with Affliction.

    Oh hell yeah! Gomi could still fight in StrikeForce, Allfiction and StrikeForce do a lot of fighter sharing.

    Let’s hope Gomi doesn’t lose. That would suck.
