Gonzaga blisters Jordan in the first
Gabriel Gonzaga is always going to be best known for the night he “Cro Copped” Mirko Cro Cop, but as of late, the veteran Brazilian heavyweight is starting to add more impressive finishes to his personal highlight reel.
Saturday night at UFC 166, “Napao” earned his second consecutive first-round stoppage win – and fourth stoppage win in five fights since returning to the UFC in January 2012 – by knocking out rising prospect Shawn Jordan.
As the former LSU fullback stepped in to close the distance and land with his right, Gonzaga slipped the punch and countered, catching Jordan square on the jaw with a crashing right hand.
