Remember this guy? That’s former Tachi Palace Fights flyweight and bantamweight champ Ulysses Gomez (9-4), who just signed a deal with Resurrection Fighting Alliance. The 31-year-old UFC and Bellator vet announced the news via Facebook on Monday.
After moving from flyweight to bantamweight in the Tachi Palace promotion and capturing their 135 pound title with a submission win over Cody Gibson in Dec. 2011, Gomez signed on with the Ultimate Fighting Championship in 2012 and moved back down to the 125 pound weight division.
Gomez unfortunately dropped back-to-back bouts in the Octagon, to John Moraga in Aug. 2012 and Phil Harris in Feb. 2013, and was subsequently released from his contract. Now fighting with RFA, the submission ace has a chance to string together some wins and get back to the big show.
A date and opponent for Gomez’s RFA debut has not yet been announced. Stay tuned for that.
