    I still would like to see Gomi standup with Yves Edwards, Yves to me is a better standup and ko artist than Gomi is. Gomi may hit hard, but Yves hits hard and can string together extremely long and well put together combinations.
    I'll make one when I can find one I like.

    I don't think Gomi could beat Hughes. Gomi has a good ground game, but he'd better be great at netting subs from his back, because I don't think he'd have an opportunity for much else in this hypothetical fight.

    Hughes never got BJ on his back, if BJ can do it Gomi can.

    How do you figure? BJ made both Gomi AND Hughes look like bad jokes. It's not as though Gomi gave Penn a schooling in groundwork, or in any other range, for that matter.

    'sides, Gomi has been taken down before, and if anyone can do it again, it's Hughes.

    Agreed, Hughes has got some good takedowns, and he is like a bull. Never gives up the drive and will always finish if it takes him 3 or 4 minutes to do so.

    That is basically all Hughes has though, but he did impress me with the submission of St.Pierre. So I see Hughes still improving and he is not letting himself become one dimensional.

    Yeah Hughes is becoming very well rounded, his fights against Trigg were legendary. All he lacks now is a good stand up game.

    Yea, I am not sure how long it will take him to develop it either, considering how much time he would want to put into it :P

    I thought the ending of that fight was bullshit, though I'm not 100% sure since they didn't do any replay for some reason. IIRC, Sakurai threw gomi, but gomi was on the ropes and rebounded off them on the way down, so he ended up on top of sakurai instead of on the bottom. If they weren't next to the ropes, Sakurai's throw wouldn't have been interrupted and I think it would have ended differently.
    Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

    I have to disagree. The fact is, they were by the ropes, Gomi did wind up on top, he did punish Sakurai on the ground, and he did subsequently knock Sakurai out.

    If you're right about why Sakurai's takedown phaild, well, then it was a stupid mistake hardly befitting a PRIDE champion, and he paid the price.
