Review: 2014-12-13, fight not particularly good between Gabriel Gonzaga and Matt Mitrione: it gets two stars (UFC Performance of the Night). The black belt in Bjj Gabriel Gonzaga entered this fight with a pro mma record of 16-8-0 (100% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.18 heavyweight in the world; he has fought once in 2014 losing to Stipe Miocic (=Gonzaga vs Miocic).
His opponent, the black belt in karate and former Nfl football player Matt Mitrione, has a record of 8-3-0 (87% ko/tko victory rate – he has never won via submission) and he entered as the No.23 in the same weight class; he suffered his last defeat in 2013 when he faced Brendan Schaub (=Schaub vs Mitrione) but after this bout he came back to win beating Shawn Jordan (=Mitrione vs Jordan) and Derrick Lewis (=Mitrione vs Lewis). Gonzaga vs Mitrione is on the undercard of Junior dos Santos vs Stipe Miocic – UFC on Fox 13. Watch the video and rate this fight!
