Gonzaga: I want to be the UFC champion


Gabriel Gonzaga is 4-1 since returning to the UFC after being released and is hoping to crack into the top five in the division, and earn himself a world title fight: 

"I wasn’t sure what did I want in the past," he said on his retirement in 2010, "but now I know that I want to be the UFC champion."

"I believe I can beat anyone, but you have to have some luck when the time comes. I lost to Randy Couture because of an accident during the fight, and I believe things could have been different if I had better luck."

Gonzaga has earned a shot to the UFC gold in 2007, after he stopped Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic, but was defeated by Couture four months later. More experienced, "Napao" believes he can beat anyone, including Cain Velasquez, to become the best in the world.

"(Velasquez) is a tough fighter, but everybody looks up to the champion and studies his games," he said. "He has some flaws in his game, and I’d need to be ready for this fight."

Lol who the hell doesn't want to be champion? "Yeah I'm only fighting in the UFC to try and be the best gatekeeper ever! "Gonzaga is always fun to watch, but no one's taking that belt from Cain imo. At least no one at the moment. JDS will murder every contender until someone new and unstoppable comes along. I just don't think Gabe is that guy.

Indeed, would be nice for Gabriel if he could get another fight and beat him. I don't know how possible a third match up is.

I want Christina Hendricks to sit on my face but that aint happening either. I think that the WarHamster beats him to a bloody pulp which is a shame as Gonzaga is the reason I spat gatorade out of my nose while watching him run and dive into a wall!

I thought the phrase "knows how to peel a banana" was meant to be a euphemism for his submission skills. Like peel a banana = rip off a limb.But then I saw the video and now I can't stop fucking laughing.
