Gabriel Gonzaga looking to reclaim his spot in the UFC with win over Edinaldo OliveiraPosted on December 26, 2011, 08:40 PM by Trent Reinsmith
Between November 2005 and October 2010, Gabriel Gonzaga compiled a UFC record of seven wins and five losses. Where Gonzaga ran into a problem was his last four fights with the promotion. After losing three of those bouts he found himself released.
After he was released, Gonzaga competed for Reality Fighting, defeating Parker Porter via third round submission. After that win, fate smiled on Gonzaga, as an injury to Rob Broughton has found him rejoining the UFC. Gonzaga will replace Broughton at UFC 142, facing Edinaldo Oliveira.
Oliveira will make his UFC debut on the January 14 card, coming into the fight with a record of 13-0 and even though Gonzaga has more experience on the big stage of the UFC, he is not taking the fight lightly, “My team are studying and will find the best strategy for this fight. Oliveira is 13-0 for a reason. He has a great coaches behind him, but I want to fight and claim my spot back. He is in front of me. I am preparing very hard for this fight!” – for more see MMASucka.com
