One-time UFC title challenger Gabriel Gonzaga is back with the UFC.
According to his own Team Link academy website, the 32-year-old has signed a four-fight deal with the UFC and will replace Rob Broughton against Edinaldo Oliveira at UFC 142 in Brazil.
Gonzaga (12-6-0) last competed for the UFC at UFC 121 in October 2010 in a loss to Brendan Schaub, prompting the UFC to hand him his walking papers. Rather than fight for less money in smaller MMA promotions, Gonzaga said shortly after that he would focus on his Brazilian jiu-jitsu gyms and return to grappling competitions. As most MMA "retirements" go, Gonzaga's was short-lived. Gonzaga made his MMA return just under a year later, defeating Parker Porter this past October at a Reality Fighting event in Uncasville, Conn.FULL STORY
