Gabriel Gonzaga says Mirko Filipovic is still dangerous going into UFC Fight Night 64

#14 Gabriel Gonzaga (16-9) 7 KOs, 9 Subs & 0 DEC wins is scheduled to fight Mirko Filipovic (30-11) 22 KOs, 5 Subs & 3 DEC wins this Saturday at UFC Fight Night 64.

“He’s (Crop Cop) still danger in his strongest point, that is the high kick,” the Brazilian said. “If you mess up the timing, he’ll kick you.”

Gonzaga is 2-3 in his last five fights. He is currently riding a two fight losing streak. He lost to Travis Browne in April of 2013 by 1st round TKO, but then won his next two fights. He beat Dave Herman at UFC 162 by 1st round knockout and then over Shawn Jordan at UFC 166 by first round knockout. He lost to Stipe Miocic in January of 2014 by unanimous decision and then to Matt Mitrione in December of 2014 by 1st round TKO.

On their first fight that saw him knock out Mirko with a headkick: “My life changed a lot,” Gonzaga said. “After that I could stop work and become a real pro fighter and just train to fight. It was a hard time in my life because of a lot of change, but it was great.”

UFC Fight Night 64 takes place on Saturday (April 11) at Krakow Arena in Krakow, Poland on UFC Fight Pass.
