I hope to god Gonzaga takes him downs, subs him and ends the Dos Santos hype train.



If you don't like Dos Santos then you're going to be disappointed. JDS is the future of the heavyweight division and will be champion within a year

Gonzaga has been incredibly unable to take any amount of punishment. If he doesn't take JDS down asap it's over.



The guy stayed in the fight with Randy with a broken nose for over a round after an illegal heatbutt on the slam. I mean is it really that bad to be KO'd in the HW division that guys like Arlovski and Gabe get labeled glass chins and no heart. HW's will make a glass chin out of everyone.



Not a glass chin. More of a quitter. I have tremendous respect for him and what happend with his son, but if you hit GG in the face, you will win the fight, just ask Fab.



I wouldnt call losing to 3 premier HWs of thier time a quitter but then again none of us were in his head, but how do you know he wasnt just damaged opposed to a conscious thought of "qutting" mid-fight?

Where will this be on in Canada?

Online, right.



I believe the channel is called The Score. It has the WEC on it.

I look forward to this match up, and Gonzaga heading to Strikeforce afterwards, I think he'd do alright there.

Black House has a number of fighters that they train with that have gone against Gonzaga in grappling competitions. I think they will be well prepared for the type of top game gonzaga brings.

This fight will test Dos Santos' ability to strike while keeping in mind to stuff the takedown, but we do know that gonzaga doesnt have the best skills when it comes to moving out of the way of a punch, and Dos Santos throws his punches with a burst in and a thudding pop behind it. I see it ending the same way most do.

He's always winning until he starts getting hit, then it ends soon after. Gabe just doesn't have the toughness to wheather a storm it seems.

A risky fight for Dos Santos.

If he wins I don't think anyone will be suprised but if he loses then his hype train gets derailed fast.
Gonzaga has nothing to lose in this fight though,and he may be able to pull off another big win with the underdog status a lot of people will be giving him in this bout.
I say Dos Santos will drop him within the first 2 rounds,but I would also like to see what this fight could potentialy become as a ground war.

So Gonzaga is the gate keeper at HW, if Dos Santos gets the win here he should be right there is line for a tittle shot.

Dos Santos by KO in the first round.

Should be another first round TKO by Dos Santos...he has fast, heavy hands. Unless Gonzaga immediately tries to take it to the ground and work his top game, I think Dos Santos is going to win.

I wanna see Carwin vs. Dos Santos....so we'll see what happens w/ the Mir/Carwin fight.

I hate the fact that I dont have Versus. Hopefully come time for this DirecTv and them will figure something out. This sh*t is getting old fast
