Gonzaga is a sleeper and has proven that in big opportunities he has the ability to shine. He may not have the name like Mir, but I think he is easier to sell than Mitrione and they were ready to put him in there. I can picture the commercial now. A non stop reel of the head kick to CroCop with a voice saying, "last time he was supposed to be on someone else's highlight reel... He made his own." Or something along those lines.
And I can't help but root for him because he trains right down the street from me.
