Gonzaga hoping win leads to title shot


Gabriel Gonzaga is 4-1 in his second stint in the UFC and hopes a win this weekend over Stipe Miocic leads him to a title shot:

Gonzaga believes the version of him that rapidly advanced up the heavyweight ranks only to fall hard and fast is long gone.

“Seven years more experience, more training and more skills,” he said. “Everything is accumulated now for a new fighter, so I’m definitely different than seven years ago.”

This time around, Gonzaga believes he can make the most out of his run toward the title. And by beating Miocic, he could steal another opponent’s opportunity.

“I’m coming with a good run,” he said. “If I win, it’s going to be good for a title shot. I just need to keep winning and keep going. I’m really motivated.”

I'm going for Napao also. But even if he wins, he still needs another win against a top 5, maybe even 2 more wins.

If he wins he is definitively is the discussion as top contender after Browne/Werdum winner. He will likely need another win after Stipe though.

Not until he beats JDS, Browne or Werdum

I hope not and for one simple little thing. I can't stand that "mean face" he makes all the time.

I'm a fan, but I really doubt he fights for the title again.

It was Napoleon, who said, quote:"Give me 100 000 Croatian soldiers and I will conquer all the world" In this case we only need one!

A win does not get him a shot but gets him in the top 5-10: barnett, nelson, jds or overeem/mir winner most likely
