Heavyweight prospect Stipe Miocic calls out Gabriel Gonzaga in UFC Tonight
Gabriel Gonzaga certainly made an impression with his KO win over Shawn Jordan at UFC 166 and it seems like he caught the attention of Stipe Miocic. The rising heavyweight prospect has expressed his interest in a possible fight with Napao in the recent edition of UFC Tonight.
The 31 year old Miocic has started his MMA record with 6-0 prior to his UFC career. Since then he racked up three straight wins with the promotion before suffering an upset KO at the hands of Stefan Struve. He returned to the winning column when he outpointed Roy Nelson in their heavyweight showdown last June and he wants to add the hard hitting Brazilian to the list of his victims. Meanwhile, Gonzaga has just recently come back to relevancy after back to back first round KOs of Dave Herman and Shawn Jordan. Gonzaga, who lost to randy Couture in his first bid for the title, has stated his interest for another run at the heavyweight gold in the interview after his win over Jordan.
That being said, Gonzaga’s camp has yet to say something about the potential matchup. Regardless, the two makes up for an interesting fight. Miocic has the advantage in speed and athleticism while Gonzaga will have the edge in the knockout power and submission department.
