Gonzaga is probably going to win whatever fights he takes on a local level so he'll eventually be back in UFC so he have mixed results in the UFC again.
I think Gonzaga's will to fight was smacked out of him by randy carwin jds and so on.. he hasnt shown he wants to win fights, and by his comments I dont see him joining SF anytime soon i believe he wanted out of his contract.. wants to go back to normal life and the bjj.. guy can still make a mega living well not getting the shit kicked out of him..he's not a true MMA fighter he's a BJJ artist that got lost in the sport of MMA..n dont get started with that freakin headkick.
Not shocked by any means, he's such a waste of talent in my eyes. He always seems to go into a fight with no game plan what so ever and just sees where the fight takes him. If he could actually work a game plan and put everything in his arsenal to use he could be quite the force. But I don't feel this will ever really happen.
It's a shame because if Gonzaga had taken this fight to the ground, he would have had a huge advantage over Schaub and therefore could have saved his UFC contract. He seemed pre-occupied with trying to put on an exciting fight on his feet and KO Schaub. I'm sure we'll be seeing Gonzaga in Strikeforce really soon!

Now that he's not in the UFC, he can finally use his BJJ again... if he remembers how.
i think the ufc made a new rule that if you get knocked out by junior dos santos your getting cut sooner rather then later haha.
werdum, gonzaga, i would assume yvel was cut after losing 3 in a row and getting knocked out by JON MADSEN!, and struve isnt far away from getting his walking papers either if he didnt catch morecraft hed be gone right now.
gabe was cut for one simple reason.
his heart wasnt into it. look at the last fight. he offered nothing to very end. look how quickly he was in and going for a sub as the time ran out. im sorry, but if gabes heart was into it, he would of finished brendan in the first. that was his gimmie fight and he came out flat. that is why he was cut. gabe is a master on the gound......but if he isnt gonna put forth the effort............................................ ..........
i mean come on, sorry if anyone thinks this is fighter bashing but his last fight was shit. he is better than that. thats why he was cut. if he EVER puts the heart and effort into mma, he will be back in the ufc and near the top once again

i shoud have worded what i said better. my above post tells what i thought was funny. getting kicked in the nuts wasnt funny but his reaction to it was what was amusing to me
Sounds to me like he really is contemplating quitting. He said this before he was officially released:
Thanks everyone saying I should use my BJJ , but if I didn't use is because I couldn't ,more than everybody I want win my fights, I don't know way but I didn't fought well my lest fight, if I do fight again I hope win
Sounds like he's done fighting by the sounds of it... back to a normal life and BJJ forever.
