Nate Diaz vs Takanori Gomi odds for UFC 135 fight on Sept. 24

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is giving Japanese striking sensation Takanori Gomi a chance to exact revenge on Nick Diaz for his weedoplata at PRIDE 33 back in 2007.

Well, sort of.

Gomi will square off against little brother Nate at the upcoming UFC 135: "Jones vs. Rampage" event this Saturday night (Sept. 24) in Denver, Colorado, exactly four years and seven months to the day that he got inside the ring and went toe-to-toe against the elder Diaz.

And the oddsmakers don't like his chances.

"The Fireball Kid" is a +190 underdog heading into "Mile High City," while Diaz enjoys a -250 betting line, the first time he's been the odds-on pick to win since UFC 118 back in Auagust 2010.

Diaz is making his return to the land of the lightweights after finding moderate success at 170-pounds. The lean and lanky boxer found it difficult to compete with the grappling beasts patrolling the welterweight waters.

Ironically enough, it was that exact reason he initially made the jump up in weight, as he had lost three of his last four contests at 155-pounds.

Clay Guida, Joe Stevenson and Gray Maynard all largely had their way with him.

Of course, Diaz is always good for an interesting style match-up and that's exactly what Gomi represents. And with the bad blood between both camps, we may very well be in for a good old-fashioned passionate ass-whooping.

But who will be on the receiving end of it? Anyone like Gomi in the upset? Or is he too submission prone?

Let's hear your play.
