Diaz bros-2 Gomi-0. Nate Diaz just put on what Joe Rogan called the performance of his career, dominating the former Pride champion Takanori Gomi all over the Octagon and submitting The Fireball Kid in the first round. Now I think MMA-Japan’s Michael Hackler has to do some sort of demeaning act for LayzietheSavage, I’m not sure what, but there was a bet floating around out there, that much I do know.
From the outset Nate boxed up Gomi in typical 209 fashion: stiff jabs with high volume and devastating accuracy. Gomi couldn’t get anything going at all, constantly being forced to the outside with Diaz’s sharp and quick strikes. Gomi attempted to do what he does best and land that one big strike but he whiffs on multiple occasions. Diaz continues to pick The Fireball Kid apart and it goes to the ground where Nate attempts a triangle (he totally had the opportunity to sink in the gogo) then he switches over to the armbar and Gomi taps quickly.
