Kenny Florian On Possible March Bout With Takanori Gomi

From MMAJunkie.com:

“It's a fight that I think I've been wanting to do for a long time, ever since Gomi was the best over in PRIDE, so Gomi's obviously a legend in the sport and those are the kind of guys that I want to challenge myself with,” Florian said from Los Angeles, where he was working with ESPN on an undisclosed project. “The quickest road back to the title is beating great fighters like Gomi.”

“I see (Gomi) as a great opportunity to improve as a mixed martial artist and face one of the best fighters to ever fight as a lightweight,” he said. “So for me, I've always had a lot of respect for the Japanese fighters and how they conduct themselves as martial artists, and obviously Gomi has accomplished a lot in the sport. To beat someone like that would be tremendous.”
