I'd pick Gonzaga if he comes in with a sprawl and brawl gameplan because IMO he can put Nogueira out if he carefully picks his shots (head kicks, straight rights, superman punches, low kicks). Nogueira looked very stationary against Couture, granted he won but he'll more than likely be looking the same against Gonzaga and we all know Napao hits like a meteor. Minotauro's ability to take shots is deceasing with every fight since his UFC debut.
I love Nogueira but this fight is a make it or break it for him.
