Gomi NYE Hints?! The Khan Going Outside In 2010

Takanori Gomi made an interesting blog post today, he wrote that a dream he’s had for a long time came true, and we’ll know what wish came true at the end of the year. Maybe people are reading too much into it but Tanigawa was asked about Gomi participating in Dynamite!! on twitter today and answered that that question is really, really, really hard to answer.

Korean media are reporting that they haven’t heard about Choi Hong Man training anywhere right now so a fight against Tim Sylvia on NYE would be strange.

After their successful second event, it looks like The Khan has received a lot of offers from promoters outside of Korea. Offers have come from Japan, Mongolia, Croatia, and Macao.

A Korea vs. Japan 8 vs. 8 event together with Nagoya-based MMA/Kickboxing in a cage promotion HEAT (Sentoryu fights there) is possible for next year and another offer is producing a 71 kg tournament together with Croatian promotion King Of The Ring.

The offers from Mongolia and Macao are more “backing with funds and holding the event with the “The Khan” name” offers. Candidate dates for events are May 15th in Mongolia for the Genghis Khan Day and April in Macao. They might hold around 2 events outside of Korea in 2010.

    OMG Don’t even put that thought into my head, tinobar. Now I have the sickest expectation for Dynamite. Gomi vs. Watanabe…so sick.

    It’s also possible Gomi is talking about signing with a US promotion, right? I think that seems most likely.

    Gomi’s not having a kid. Forget who reported that originally, but they got it wrong.

    Someone who asked him last month told me he laughed and said “I don’t even have a girlfriend.”

    Dan Henderson just signed with Strikeforce. Gomi to Strikeforce/DREAM would be great, but a dream of his is to also fight in the UFC, so who knows at this point.

    His dream is to fight in the UFC vs Penn probably, not on a Dynamite card.

    BUT, there were rumors earlier of Gomi vs Kawajiri 2
