Gabriel Gonzaga bounced back in to the win column with his savage 17 second knock out of Dave Herman. If UFC 162 showed us anything- it is that assumption make an ass out of you and umption. Herman assumed that Gonzaga would want to take it to the ground, where he is strongest, and seemed a little sloppy in his defense.
The 262lb. Brazilian made Herman pay for his early mistake, countering a sloppy lowkick with an almighty overhand right that would have KO’d a rhino. Herman went down like a sack of shillet and the rest is history. A big win for Gonzaga, who was recently elbowed in to the next dimension by Travis Browne at TUF 17 finals.
So it’s time for another step up in competition for Gonzaga, who has fought most of the active Heavyweights as it is. Check out his post fight interview with MMAFighting and stay tuned to Lowkick!
