PHOTO | Gomi Broke Hand In First Round Against Sanchez At UFC On Fuel 8 | UFC NEWS


As if losing a controversial split decision to Diego Sanchez this past weekend wasn’t enough, Takanori Gomi also suffered a broken right hand in the first round of the bout. This means Gomi delivered what many consider the most exceptional performance of his career, with a handicapped hand. Gomi posted a picture of his broken hand on his blog.

About one minute into the fight, Gomi landed a right hand to the top of Diego’s head, and shook out his glove in pain. However, he still fought through the pain, and even connected his right hand several times throughout the duration of the fight. Even with a limp hand, Takanori Gomi ended up out-landing Diego in all three rounds of their fight. My respect for Gomi just skyrocketed.

    Wow

  2. Stonerman says:

    I still have no idea how Gomi lost that fight. He should have won 29-28 across the 3 judges.

  3. ben says:

    dana white should have the power to over turn horrible decisions like this one. Why did the ufc bring there own judges to japan? they have judges there! ufc just loves controversy and not getting shit right.

  4. The Way Of The Dutchman says:

    That was a 30-27 for Gomi easy.

  5. GOT RID OF FITCH (finally) says:

    Gomi 30-27 NO DISPUTES
