Gabriel Gonzaga gone from the UFC
It appears that Gabriel Gonzaga is retiring from mixed martial arts. The Brazilian heavyweight announced on his Twitter on Thursday that he’s been cut by the UFC following his unanimous-decision loss to Brendan Schaub at UFC 121. Before that he lost to heavyweight contender Junior Dos Santos.
Gonzaga states: “Official now, out of UFC… Back to normal life and BJJ forever.” Of course, the only thing keeping Gonzaga in the UFC this long was the head kick heard round the world – his shocking flattening of Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic way back at UFC 70 three years ago – and the hope that he might repeat the performance.
