Dos Santos by mauling Gabriel untill he quits. I like this fight though, Two very exciting fighters!
Dos Santos win = Maybe title shot, Probally not though
Gonzaga win = Nothing, Another fight
I would rather Nog V Mir II to decide a number 1 contender...
Dos Santos is going to destroy GG
this should be the third of the co main events
this fight might rule out a hendo vs nate match or even the rumored silva vs akiyama match
I will root for Gonzaga, since it seems almost like a must-win for him; otherwise, he will probably be pushed down into the gatekeeper role for a great deal of his career as the UFC's heavyweight division gets less desperate for contenders. Gonzaga's last high-profile victory was in 2007 against CroCop, and since then his only main card victory was against Josh Hendricks, falling short in his matches with Couture, Werdum, and Carwin. On the other hand, Dos Santos is young, and has the ability to recover from a loss.
I will probably pick Dos Santos though.
