Gabriel Gonzaga Back in UFC

After an injury to Rob Broughton left a slot open for a heavyweight contender at UFC 142 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, UFC contacted a former contender to fill his place: Gabriel Gonzaga. Gonzaga returns with a new, multi-fight contract and will face the undefeated Ednaldo Oliveira on the show. Gonzaga was 7-5 in his 12 fights in the Octagon.

UFC 142 marks the second trip to Rio for UFC in six months after their return this past August with UFC 134, headlined by a fight between UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva taking on Yushin Okami. The main event of UFC 142 will see UFC Featherweight champion Jose Aldo taking on Chad Mendes.
