Win-or-Get-Fired Alert: Gabriel Gonzaga

How far the mighty fall: Once the UFC’s #1 heavyweight contender, Gabriel Gonzaga will reportedly be facing Team Punishment journeyman Justin McCully in his next bout, at UFC 86 (July 5th, Las Vegas). McCully will be looking for his second win in the Octagon, after defeating Antoni Hardonk by decision at UFC Fight Night 9 in April 2007; he hasn’t competed since then. The match is particularly important for Gonzaga, who’s been on a two-fight skid since knocking out Mirko Cro Cop at UFC 70. Not only did Gonzaga lose big matches to Randy Couture and Fabricio Werdum, he didn’t look impressive in either bout, leading some fans to question his heart. Fighting McCully is Napao’s last chance to redeem himself; if he doesn’t have a successful showing, you can bet he’ll be a victim of the UFC’s ongoing roster cuts.

In other UFC news…

— Due to a busted ankle, Alessio Sakara has been forced to withdraw from The Ultimate Fighter 7 finale (June 21st, Las Vegas). Replacing Sakara in his middleweight bout against Rob Yundt is Rob Kimmons, a 20-3 veteran of an alphabet soup of regional leagues who will be making his UFC debut.

— Yes, you heard that right. Karo Parisyan is the “gatekeeper” of the UFC’s welterweight division, according to Dana White. Ouch, buddy!

— The UFC just sent a cease-and-desist letter to Tito Ortiz for wearing the UFC’s championship belt on the cover of his new autobiography, This Is Gonna Hurt. The belt is “intellectual property of the UFC…as such, its use in promotional materials requires the company’s approval per the terms of its standard contract.” Now who’s the bitch?

so true, Napo stole the next card...
Randy would have tuned him up anyway.
I really want to see Brock VS Kimbo, kind of like clash of the novice titans

I hate Gabriel for stealing our Cro Cop vs Couture. I don't think that fatass could get his leg that high a second time.

You meant "Ouch, bro!" Right?

@ MMA-hole: ahhhh I get it, Rob Kimmons debut, thanks MMA-hole your really not that much of an A-hole. Well being in Alaska I did not expect for people to know a lot about a hometown boy so when I read that I assumed they were talking about Rob. And to answer your question, Math and History were my best subjects.

I like Gonzaga's skillset but he really needs to get in better condition. He seems to have a bad habit of gassing down the stretch.

@ Aaron from alaska: Not big on reading comprehension, are you?

actually this is not Robs Yundts UFC debut this will be his second fight, I actually know Rob and he has fought here in Alaska. His first fight he lost to a guillatine to Ricardo almeida a fight he took on 3 days notice

Gonzaga should be facing Vera...they both lost their last fights...instead they put Verdum to fight Vera, so I think the same ulimatum should be given to Vera, I hate that fool....I think Gonzaga would tear Vera apart....oh well Gonzaga will win against Mccully anyways....

Kairo will make a good gate he should dress up like Rick Moranis and find the Keymaster.....

Cease and assist....I love it!! And Tito If it goes to trial...please wear your weigh-in shirt....I am sure the Judge would love that one....and no matter what they say in the courtroom you sit where Jenna tells you to sit.....

"Tito? I'd like you to meet Karma. Karma, this is Tito."

"Oh...I see you two have already met..."
