I actually thought he should be fighting someone higher-ranked than Gomi, but I suppose no one is available. Would actually like to see him fight Cerrone eventually.

He seems to have a good attitude, work-ethic and the skills to go far. I think he will be a consistent top-10 guy, but likely won't win a title. Maybe a Florian-esque career (minus the weight-class jumping).

I agree. A fight with Cerrone would be sick!

I still remember the good ole days when Gomi was #1 before that crazy Diaz fight i am rooting for him and hope for a brutal knockout, Gomi can knock anyone out in that weightless.

It's hard to believe that Gomi vs. Diaz was 7 years ago. Crazy how time flies!

We need to see him tested more, but I think he could be a contender. I think he's more skilled than his teammate Michael Chandler.

Don't think he's going to make the top ten ever, just because LW is so stacked, but he's definitely good enough to compete with a lot of the top ten-fifteen in the division.

UFC has him at 9 meaning he would be 10 even if u put the champ at 1

We havent seen him face anyone with too much skill yet, he lost to Iaquinta on TUF but that was a little while ago now
