Heavyweight sensation in the UFC, Junior “Cigano” dos Santos will have one more tough challenge ahead. After knocking Fabrício Werdum out and pass thru Mirko “Cro Cop”, the heavyweight faces the compatriot Gabriel “Napão” Gonzaga at UFC 108, on January 2, and he’ll keep the strategy of the last fights. “I must be calm is every fight and always search for my best, so I always look for the knockout“, said, ready to any kind of fight.

Dos Santos will take Gonzaga IMO. I think he has more upside then anyother HW fighter that being said Brock will Lay and Lunch Box him if they fight.

Yeah, Cigano will pressure Gonzaga and Gonzaga has shown a propensity for folding under pressure. Cigano by KO

Depends on Gonzaga's gameplan.

If he wants to bang, he will probably lose. Gonzaga has the better ground game though so if he fights smart he could certainly win. Should be a war.

Does Gonzaga have the better ground game though?

I think that's pretty much undeniable at this point. What has Cigano done in the jiu jitsu world compared to Gonzaga?

I just want to see how Cigano deals with someone trying to take him down and how he does once its on the ground.

Exactly. Gonzaga has proven his bjj skills, has anyone seen Cigano's ground game?

I havent, but I do know he trains with the Nogs, so I doubt he is a scrub on the mat.
