The fight was originally confirmed by ESPN’s MMA Live on earlier today, before numerous news sources corroborated it.
Florian rebounded well following his summer loss to B.J. Penn by stopping Clay Guida in the second round via submission. “Ken Flo” also holds notable wins over the likes of Roger Huerta and Joe Stevenson.
Gomi, who was the PRIDE champion when Zuffa purchased the promotion will return to the octagon after a number of years away. He is currently 2-2 in his last four fights, and holds wins over Duane Ludwig and Marcus Aurelio
