Takanori Gomi finishes Melvin Guillard at Rizin 11

Takanori Gomi

The Fireball Kid channeled his famed punching power and crushed Melvin Guillard

For those of you, like myself, who fondly remember Takanori Gomi when he had explosive knockout power, you’ll enjoy this. This weekend in the famed Saitama Super Arena, Gomi was set to face Melvin Guillard. The two had a spirited striking match, but minutes in, Gomi landed a combination that sent Guillard crumbling to the canvas.

The victory for Gomi amazing, as his last victory game some four-plus years ago in the UFC Octagon against Isaac Vallie-Flagg. Gomi had dropped six in a row heading into this clash. With the loss, Melvin has now lost eight in a row and nine of ten. It’s time for Melvin to consider either hanging up the gloves or earning some cash on the bare-knuckle circuit. In those nine losses, he has been stopped six times.

Below you’ll find the action, as we’ve kicked it off a couple minutes into the fight. Enjoy the fistic fireworks.
