Takanori Gomi Eager To Fight UFC Lightweight Champ BJ Penn, Dana White Makes It Difficult

Takanori Gomi

The former PrideFC lightweight champion Takanori Gomi explains how eager he is to acquire a rematch fight against current UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn.  Although Gomi respects UFC President Dana White, the Japanese superstar believes that White is making this fight almost impossible to happen:

From Takanori Gomi:

“I want to fight BJ Penn again. He knows I’m the unique guy of this division able to knock him out. It would be the biggest champions fighting. Imagine how this match would be … but it’s not close to coming true. I don’t want to talk over UFC … Mr. Dana White is a great manager and I respect him but is a person hard to deal with. I’m not an art martial beginner, I am a MMA champion. What about him? What would he be?”
