A Lot on the Line for Griffin and Gomi at UFC on Versus 2

There is a lot on the line for both Tyson Griffin and Takonori Gomi at UFC Versus 2.  Both fighters are coming off losses and can’t afford a second straight defeat.

During his days in Pride, Gomi was widely regarded as the best 155 lbs fighter in the world, now however Gomi is just 2-3 in his last five fights and a loss to Griffin would put him at 0-2 in the UFC.  Gomi lost his UFC debut to Kenny Florian via rear naked choke at UFC Fight Night: Florian vs Gomi.  This is a must win for Gomi is he wants to not only stay relevant in the 155 lbs division but also to avoid possibly being cut by the UFC as well.
