Today FoxSports announced that it had confirmed a verbal agreement was in place for Takanori Gomi to meet Myles Jury at UFC Fight Night 52 in Japan.
UFC Japan takes place on September 20, 2014 and will be headlined by Marko Hunto versus Roy Nelson. Gomi versus Jury adds more KO power to that.
“The Fireball Kid” has recently mounted a comeback in his career, winning 3 out of his last 4 fights and looking sharp in his last bout with Isaac Vallie-Flagg. Taking out a young stud like Jury will prove he’s here to stay.
“Fury” is just 25 years old and undefeated over 14 pro fights with his most recent win being over Diego Sanchez – to whom Gomi lost a contentious split decision on the last Japan card. A win over Gomi will make bank for the Alliance MMA standout.
