    Yamamoto "withdrew" from his upcoming fight a week or so ago. I haven't seen an update as to why. He would have gone over a year and a half between fights. Now, it'll likely be over two years. Has there been any talk on him lately? Why was he laid off so long?

    Both Ross Person and Myles Jury called out Gomi since his last fight. Both got inked to fight different opponents. By the time he gets any fight booked, it'll likely be close to a year layoff. He won 2 of his last 3, and his last fight was a split decision.

    I know they're not contenders (especially Kid,) but I still like following the careers of guys I watched back when I was getting more into MMA. And with these guys nearing the ends of their careers, one to two year layoffs could practically be career ending.

    Kid hasn't fought in so long and he has 3 losses in a row.

    He is getting old too....so I wouldn't be surprised if Dana cut him.

    I wish they were in the UFC in their primes.

    He would be on a 3 fight streak if the judges hadn't fucked up the Sanchez decision. I think he looked the best he's looked in years after that beating he took from Diaz

    I look forward to both of their next bouts and prefer they weren't cut. If Vitor can turn his career around and KTFO his opponents, maybe Gomi & Kid can too.

    Saving them for the Singapore card, I'd suppose.

    I expect both are being saved for Singapore in January, UFC will want as much Asian name-power as possible on that card, considering it'll only be a Fight Night.

    Takanori Gomi vs. Jim Miller
    Kid Yamamoto vs. Brad Pickett

    I think those fights could happen on that card.

    Kid will likely be on the Singapore card in Jan. Gomi was still hurt when they tried to put together Pearson vs Gomi in October.

    He was actually starting to look good again, in my opinion. He should have won that Diego fight.
