Gomi was riding an impressive ten-fight win streak in Pride when he came up against American Top Team's Marcus Aurelio. Gomi had just beaten Hayato "Mach" Sakurai in the 2005 lightweight Grand Prix, and seemed to be near unstoppable. That is, until Aurelio got him on his back. Aurelio passed his guard without much trouble and locked up an arm triangle. Though Gomi's hand seemed to want to tap, his spirit wouldn't allow it. Instead his arm fell limply to the canvas, forcing the Pride ref to try the old pro wrestling resistance test before concluding that "The Fireball Kid" was really out. For weird reasons that only made sense in Pride, this wasn't a title bout. Gomi not only woke up feeling refreshed and ready to start the day, he also woke up still the champ. How often does that happen?
