Nevada denies Gabriel Gonzaga's appeal of TUF 17 Finale loss
An appeal filed earlier this month by Gabriel Gonzaga has been denied, according to his manager. Marco Alvan, who trains and manages the onetime UFC heavyweight title challenger, today said he and Gonzaga (14-7 MMA, 10-6 UFC) received word from the Nevada Attorney General's office that the result of his fight with Travis Browne (14-1-1 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC) at The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale will remain a TKO win for Browne. "While we disagree and are disappointed with the commission's decision, we respect it," Alvan told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "Gonzaga would rather settle things in the cage with Travis if the UFC gives him the opportunity."

Gian Villante needed just 10 seconds – just 10 seconds to shake off an accidental eye poke and get back into his fight at Saturday's UFC 159 event. Instead, Villante (10-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) honestly answered that he couldn't see at that exact moment, and his light-heavyweight bout with fellow Strikeforce import Ovince St. Preux (13-5 MMA, 1-0 UFC) was instantly waved off.
