Gabriel Gonzaga has no heart

Gabriel Gonzaga said that there’s no shame in losing to Randy Couture, which is I suppose correct. However, there is shame in losing THE WAY that Gonzaga lost to Couture. Namely, Couture broke Gonzaga’s spirit and made him quit mentally like a bitch.

Once again tonight, Gonzaga ended up looking like a bitch. He was doing a pretty good job of controlling the fight right up till the last minute, throwing devastating kicks that looked like they were inches away from felling Werdum. Then something funny happened: Werdum closed the distance, got inside Gonzaga’s defences, and starting beating the shit out of Gonzaga with close strikes and brutal knees.

Gonzaga had no answers for the knees … he actually slid down the cage and put a hand on the ground so Werdum wouldn’t be allowed to throw them any more. But from there Werdum pushed him over, got his back, and pounded Gonzaga out. It’s not that Werdum’s strikes looked all that devastating … it’s just that Gonzaga was DONE. He gave up again, just like he did against Couture. Rather than look for an escape or work to stand up or improve position, he just covered up and put a glove over his face. Lame

I’m not too sure what the hell happens with Gonzaga now. He can train to get better in the clinch. But can he train to have more heart?

    Is this the same fight we saw? Gonzaga did well, but those knees do fucken hurt. One knee can mean alot of pain and punishment…. Also fatigue did play a role in this. Jet Lag? Overall, Werdum did well, i expected hi to win. He is a great fighter and EVERYONE counted him out, i didnt. Verdum is one of the worlds best BJJ fighter, which is why Gonzaga didnt do shit on the ground. Those knees hurt…. And Gonzaga doing an international shit squat was classic.. Esp when he would get kneed a few times, priceless!

    he’s like a big man-baby.

    linker is absolutely right. Gonzaga fuckin quit … he pussed out at the end there. As soon as the fight started going Werdum’s way, Gonzaga pussed out. I had such high expectations for this dude, I dont even know what to say.

    I completely agree with you, I thought sure as shit that he was going to get Werdum tonight I couldn’t quite understand it and then I thought back to the couture fight whenever he basically asked the refree to stop the fight because of the blood and it reminded me that he has a big fucking nose but his heart is as tiny as his testicles

    Although GG fought with a bit more vigor against Randy, he still proved himself to be a bully who backs down when you take it to him. Maybe his juvenile “scary face” making into the camera should have been an indicator (Thiago Silva does it too). For me the most significant thing about this fight is the hindsight. After Randy bloodied the bully Gonzaga and broke his will, everybody has agreed that Randy might-could be the best that ever was. Now that we know GG turns tail and runs after a good one-two, does that mean we should take Randy down a peg?

    Unlike GG, Fedor gets really determined and sadistic when you bloody his face (an increasingly likely scenario). Does Randy even deserve that fight? In retrospect, I think Randy should have defended his belt one more time (Big Nog?) before jumping ship. It would have made for fewer legal headaches as well.

    I gave Gonzaga a pass against Randy, because I would have packed my shit up and went home after he broke the fuck shit out of his shnoze, but dam that was bad. He was fucking Werdum up in the first round.

    Gonzaga is the UFCs answer to Alistair Overeem. Hitting him in the face causes him to gas and stop fighting.

  • fightlinker

    Astute comparison right there man.

  • Mobb Deep

    I told you bitches Werdum would win via Chute Boxe violence and avenge Cro Cop. So its official, the knockout was a fluke and GG is a flash in the pan. HA!

    If Gonzaga was lacking heart, WHAT THE FUCK WAS ROBINSON MISSING?

    and on an even less related topic, Robinson has a win over that guy Ken Shamrock is supposed to fight soon. How much must he suck?

    Gonzaga should look at Stevenson on how to go down in a blaze of glory. He took his ass-kicking like a man. He was finished, not saved by the mercy of the referee.

    Great fighters don’t get saved by the referee. They either finish or they get finished.

  • JoeRoganIsAnAss

    Yup, Just got done re-watching it. He definately put his hand to the ground and pussed out. No Heart.

  • MacDaddy

    What I can’t figure is he took Werdum’s legs out completely what, 2-3 times in the first round? Then he didn’t jump on him, he let him up every time? Pathetic. Also he looks eerily like Vincent D’Onofrio in full metal jacket, which is just creepy.

    That Overeem comparison is fuckin’ gold!

    “Gonzaga has no heart”

    Took the words right out my mouth.

    So dead on, it makes me sick.
