Gomi faces Seung Hwan Bang

SENGOKU had a press conference and announced fights in SENGOKU 4 on Aug 24. Takanori Gomi faces Seung Hwan Bang, who is a current DEEP lightweight champion.

Gomi:
I saw a couple of his fight videos. His fighting style reminds me of my style in SHOOTO. I consider that his weakness is a groundwork. I wonder what fans want to see in our fight. Do they enjoy if I take him down on the ground? I doubt it. I will built up my stamina to be able to fight in standing position all rounds. I'll train hard and I will be absolutely sure to win on Aug 24. I'm glad to fight my last fight in my 20's in the main event.

Seung Hwan Bang:
I'm very excited to fight Gomi. I'm a striker and will do my best to KO him.

Seung Hwan Bang is tailor made for Gomi. Gomi can't get KO'd and Bang has no groundwork, which is Gomi's biggest weakness. I wish they brought up a person with better groundgame so Gomi would practice it fighting with real opponents.
