    Gomi's technique was dog shit, Gomi's ability to time was incredible

    Knocking everyone out was 10/10

    Gomi v Dustin, Justin, Hooker, Chandler, Conor would all be bangers.

    I think he would do fine.

    He was primarily a grappler before his bout with BJ Penn, that fight made him realize he had to work on his stand up, and he started wrecking dudes
