Takanori Gomi has stepped in to fight a Diaz on two different occasions, and twice he’s come up short.
You could even say Nate Diaz followed in his brother’s footsteps at UFC 135 on Saturday night.
Not only did he defeat Gomi, he did it by way of submission. Yes, older brother Nick did it with a gogoplata that was later turned to a no contest, while Nate finished Gomi with an armbar, but they both bested the former No. 1 lightweight fighter in the world.
