Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Josh Hendricks set for UFC 91

Former UFC heavyweight title challenger Gabriel Gonzaga will make his Octagon return on Nov. 15 at UFC 91 in Portland, Oregon against UFC newcomer Josh Hendricks. Bout agreements have yet to be finalized but both camps have verbally committed to the fight.
FiveOuncesOfPain.com first learned of the matchup early Tuesday morning from a source speaking on the condition of anonymity.
Gonzaga ended a two fight losing streak at UFC 86 on July 5 when he submitted Justin McCully with a Kimura at 1:57 of round 1. Prior to the victory he had lost a UFC heavyweight title fight against Randy Couture at UFC 74 last August and then had lost a rematch to Fabricio Werdum at UFC 80 this past January.
Hendricks is based out of Ohio and has a record of 14-4 with one no contest. He hasn’t lost in his last ten fights with his most recent victory coming against James Powell via knockout at 3:35 of round 1 during a Legends of Fighting event this past November. He also fought and lost against former UFC veterans Sam Hoger and Travis Wiuff earlier in his career.
The only match officially announced for UFC 91 thus far is a lightweight encounter between Kenny Florian and Joe Stevenson. FiveOuncesOfPain.com was also the first to report over the weekend that season seven winner of “The Ultimate Fighter” Amir Sadollah announced at Combat Sports Challenge 26 on Saturday that he expects to fight on the show as well.

I think he needs to find a new camp, and get some guys, just as big, or even bigger then him to train against, along with guys that have more experience. If your the teacher your not improving.

thats cool that they are giving him less then stellar comp, border line cans.
This guy lost to Hogar who is a bad lhw, not saying he hasn't improved since then. But i won't get my hopes up.

I'd rather see Gonzaga fight quality opponents, but whatever. I hope he smashes this guy.

I really like Gonzaga, so I hope he makes quick work of this fight. He then needs to start climbing back up the ladder. This will be his 2nd fight against some lower level talent, so his confidence should be back where it needs to be. I'd like him to take on someone like Herring or Kongo after this -- and if he wins that, back into the top level with Werdum, Mir, Nog and Couture.

He'll probably dust this fool.

gonzaga by kick kick punch arm bar.
I do hope Gabe eventually makes friends with adversity in fights because he's way too talented to never win the title.
