Fireball Kid returns to action on Aug 24th

Former PRIDE lightweight champ Takanori Gomi is set to take on DEEP lightweight champ Sung Hwan Pang in Sengoku IV on August 24th. U.S. fans will remember Gomi from his upset loss to Nick Diaz, which was ultimately termed a NC because Diaz was stoned out of his mind. It's too bad fighters like Gomi are so against fighting in the U.S. because he is entertaining as hell. I am not sure there is a fighter in the lightweight division in the UFC, Affliction or Elite XC that really compares to him. I would love to see him slug it out with GSP or take on BJ Penn in a rematch.
