    Fighting tomato cans in Japan vs fighting professionals in the UFC where most contenders wrestled prior to high school and through college.

    He's 3 months older than BJ, getting old is what happened and he was never as good as BJ in the first place.

    Since 2010 Gomi 4-10, BJ 1-7-1 - getting old sucks if you keep fighting.

    There's no 'maybe' not as good either, they did fight after all but yeah Gomi fights were entertaining.

    ..and starting very early, the man debuted 20 years ago.

    He came more well known in Pride but actually he'd been a high level fighter for about 3 years before that.

    Too many punches to the head unfortunately, he can't take them like he used to, and he's surpisingly old for his looks.

    i think he just lost motivation at some point and stopped caring about mma. plus age. although in his last fight with Yachi he looked almost ok. was even close to finish a guy.

    Got old, stopped improving, was from an older generation of mma where guys where more one dimensional.
