Takanori Gomi, once considered to be one of the best lightweight fighters in the world, has signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. MMAFighting.com learned of the acquisition from sources on Friday.
No word on when and where Gomi will make his debut for the UFC. The organization has yet to officially announce the signing.
This is weird because I was just thinking to myself the other day would it be worth it for the UFC to sign Gomi. I'm sure he didn't sign for peanuts, and just how much does he have left in the tank? Well, the great thing about it is that the UFC can afford whoever they want and we'll get to find out if Gomi can cut it in the lightweight shark tank in the UFC! What say you?
