UFC acts quick and calls on Gonzaga for Rio event

Napão / Photo UFC

The call-up came quickly, right after English heavyweight Rob Broughton injured out of his January 14 fight with promotional first-timer Ednaldo “Lula” at UFC 142.

Gabriel “Napão” Gonzaga had some striking moments in the UFC, like his beating Mirko Cro Cop with a head kick and losses to Junior Cigano and Fabrício Werdum.

Fate has brought Napão back. Will he put on a show for Jiu-Jitsu fans at UFC Rio?
