Takanori Gomi is arguably the most important figure in Japanese MMA, he was after all a star in PRIDE and unlike Sakuraba, made the transition to UFC and is still at it at the ripe old age of 36. The Japanese fighter known as “The Fireball Kid” wasn’t always a fighter though, he initially wanted to be a pitcher for the Nippon Professional Baseball or NPB for short. It makes you wonder what might have happened if he hadn’t fell in love with boxing, he certainly would have still been quite successful, but as big a star and legend? This is a retrospective on the life and career of Takanori Gomi.

The "most important figure" thing seems ridiculous, there are people way more important than him. It's going to be interesting to see what happens when his, Kid Yamamoto's, and Kawajiri's contacts are up with UFC, will Rizin make a go for them?
