"World Victory Road is set to announce the signing of Takanori Gomi.... Gomi, 29, was one of MMA's most prized free agents following the Zuffa buyout of the PRIDE Fighting Championships last year. Gomi has been courted by several promoters in recent months, including K-1 and HERO'S parent company Fight Entertainment Group, as well as UFC and WEC company Zuffa. "
Looks like Zuffa whiffed on another former Pride FC champion. It would have been nice to see the "Fireball Kid" compete inside the Octagon. Oh well. It looks like Marcus Davis and the rest of the fighters on the Zuffa payroll won't get their shot at the Japanese star anytime soon.
