(Gabriel Gonzaga, turning heads with his fists)

Gabriel (Napao) Gonzaga is a world class BJJ player with big striking power, and in his earlier UFC career, he seemed to get away from his grappling roots while going for the knockout against opponents.  This led to a couple of key losses that jettisoned him from the UFC.  But he's back now, and in his fight at UFC 142 with Ednaldo Oliveira he put on a BJJ clinic, taking his man down and finishing him with a rear naked choke.

It's great to Gabe back in the big leagues.  He's a very good fighter, and once again has his sights set on the UFC HW title.  He has a long road ahead of him on that score, obviously, but it's always fun to watch him perform in the Octagon, and he's sure to give some HWs fits in there.  Here's hoping to see him in the top ten again.
