Ultimate Fighter 10 contestant Brendan “The Hybrid” Schaub continued his run in the UFC, this time defeating the former Heavyweight title challenger Gabriel Gonzaga. Schaub kept the fight in his comfort zone, the stand-up, punishing “Napao” with precise jabs and striking combinations.
Brendan Schaub managed to rock Gonzaga late in the first round, as the Brazilian was saved by the bell from another TKO loss. Second and Third rounds of the fight were pretty much the same, with Schaub stalking Gonzaga, who failed to find his pace during the fight. In addition to striking disadvantage, Gonzaga failed to utilize his World-Class BJJ skills during a fight, as Brendan Schaub managed to defend two of the Brazilian’s takedown attempts.
In the end, it was a clean and deserved 30-27 decision for Schaub, who moves up in the ladder of the UFC Heavyweight division. Facing the winner of Carwin-Nelson fight, could be a good option for Schaub, as well as the fight against the former Champ Frank Mir.
