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.

The Baddest man on the Planet: Cain Velasquez defeated Junior dos Santos in their rubber match at UFC 166

Houston, Texas – The much anticipated trilogy between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos turned out pretty similar to their rematch, albeit with more definitive results. The 32 year old champ played the perfect game; he dominated dos Santos in all the aspects of the fight, even in the striking department, where Cigano supposedly had an advantage. Just like their last fight, Velasquez negated the heavy hands of dos Santos by backing him up into the cage. The rest of the fight played out the same scenario; Velasquez controlling dos Santos in the clinch while chipping at him with dirty boxing. Cigano eventually succumbed due to the accumulation of punishment in the 5th round, he fell face first in to the canvass after a failed front choke attempt. Seeing Cigano’s vulnerable state, Referee Herb Dean decided to put a halt to the contest with 3:09 remaining in the final round.
