With his first official UFC win in the books, Leonardo Santos wants his return to be against someone from his past. Santos would like to take on Takanori Gomi, who handed the Brazilian a defeat in his first fight.
“I’m an employee in the UFC and I will fight whoever they tell me to, but I like the idea of making my UFC debut against Gomi,” said Santos. “It was really hard to make my MMA debut in Japan and it would be interesting to see this fight in Brazil. I would grow a lot with the fans supporting me to get another win in my debut.”
Santos submitted William Macario over the summer via an arm-triangle choke. The win came at welterweight.
Gomi had his two fight win streak snapped in a controversial split-decision to Diego Sanchez.
There’s no return info about either fighter.
