Before the fight, Gomi said he was going to strike with me and that he'd win. I came right out and stood with him. I took his punches and punched him but in the end, Gomi couldn't win with striking and went to the ground. His ground-work was funny to me, too. Gomi usually takes his opponent down and wins by ground-and-pound. He wasn't able to do what he normally does and that's why he went for a submission. The submission wasn't really in though, and that's why it ended the way it did.
I'm disappointed. Of course, I said before the fight that there was no need for me to train but what was just trash-talking. I woke up every morning at 8, went running and trained 3 times a day. I trained really hard for this fight. The shoulder lock wasn't working and I didn't feel any pain. I've never been injured before and my conditioning was great so there was no need to stop it.
