Various MMA sites are reporting that former Pride Lightweight Champ Takanori Gomi has signed with the UFC. Although not confirmed on the UFC website yet this is potentially big news for the division.
With the division currently dominated by BJ Penn and a distinct lack of credible opponents this could prove a very good bit of business by the UFC as Gomi would legitimately be very close to a title shot with 1 or 2 wins.
This is early news so theres not much more to add, but hopefully this will turn out to be true as it would add to a division that is in danger of becoming stagnant. What are your thoughts guys??
