veteran Gabriel Gonzaga has retired from MMA

Post by MR.WILLIE on Thu Sep 29, 2016 1:46 pm

"I don’t fight for less than 100 thousand dollars," he said. "I’m 37 years old and I won’t risk my health or waste my time training and suffering for this. I don’t need it anymore. God gave me a good opportunity in life, and I don’t need this anymore. That would be my number. For less than 100 thousand, I wouldn’t step into a ring anymore."

Gonzaga competed under the UFC banner from 2005 to 2016, and watching the recent changes in the sport have altered the way he sees the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

"The UFC is more like a show than a fight sport now," Gonzaga said. "[Conor] McGregor is the biggest example. I’m embarrassed to be in a sport where McGregor is the biggest idol. If you wouldn’t like your son to be like the biggest idol in your sport, there’s something wrong with it. And I don’t believe anyone would like to have a son like McGregor."

"Sports are made to create examples to the society as a whole," he continued. "If that’s the example, someone that talks trash about people or an entire community, he become the example for the young generation entering the sport, they will want to be like this idol. If that’s the idol, I don’t want my son fighting MMA anymore and behaving like that."

I agree with him. He needs to get out of his contract and go to Rizin. There he can compete in real MMA.

Always loved Gonzaga and I wish him well. I wish he did better in MMA and I think he never came close to fulfilling his potential. Good for him for saying what he believed.

maybe he's 50k +50k win bonus? = 100k

He has been in the UFC for 10 years now. why is he worth less? just because he lost a few fights?

UFC want you for cheap. The reebok deal also stops these guys from making as much as possible too.

There's a good chance he'll end up in Rizin. If he does decide to leave. If he has absolutely no aspirations to fight in the US again. I don't think they can stop him in Brazil or Japan.

Too bad, if he had just went to another promotion he could have been a great next fight for Java Ayala.
