Takanori Gomi Will Not Fight Again In 2009


Fighter's Only Magazine has the story:

Former PRIDE lightweight champion Takanori Gomi has stated on his personal blog that he will not fight this year since his new child is coming.

“These days have been happy for me. I’m going to get married and it makes new sense in my life. The days in Koganezaki (resort) and its beautiful beaches made me think a lot. After all, a new member of the family is coming to give us happiness. If it will be a boy his name will be Isamu, if it will be a girl her name will be Aimi,” he wrote.

“The expectation of becoming a father is such an unique sensation and I want to make the most of any moment. Therefore fighting isn’t the goal for this year anymore,” he added.
