Gomi vs. Danzig Wiki Update Wiki

Takanori Gomi met Mac Danzig on the main card of UFC on Fuel TV 6 in the lightweight division.

Round 1

The lightweights exchanged strikes in the first half of the round, with Danzig displaying technical combos while Gomi hunted for big shots before ducking in and getting a double leg takedown on Danzig. Danzig worked back to his feet but Gomi was out-boxing him and landed several hard leg kicks. Danzig found his range with a crisp left hook and a successful takedown before the horn.

Round 2

The evenly-matched lightweights seemed content to settle their differences in the boxing realm throughout much of the fight, and Danzig had his range down, making the exchanges much more even early in the second. Danzig got a takedown toward the end of the round then dragged a surging Gomi back to the mat with a Guillotine attempt as Gomi tried to get back to his feet.

Round 3

Danzig landed a big knee to start the third but got tagged with a big punch, losing his balance and winding up on the mat with Gomi on top of him. Danzig fought back to his feet and both men landed big strikes throughout the remainder of the round to cap off an exciting bout.

The judges scored the bout 29-28 Danzig, 29-28 Gomi, and 29-28 Gomi, giving him the Split Decision victory.
