Gabriel Gonzaga underwent a pair of surgeries for a broken right hand following his last UFC bout, and he’s finally ready to get back inside the Octagon.
The Brazilian heavyweight, who hasn’t fought since a unanimous decision loss to Stipe Miocic in January, is set to meet Matt Mitrione on the main card of Saturday night’s UFC on FOX 13 in Phoenix, and is feeling “great” after an 11-month layoff.
“My recovery was great. I had two surgeries and my hand is 100 percent,” Gonzaga told MMAFighting.com. “I trained hard for this fight. I did everything the doctor told me to do, and I had no problems getting back at 100 percent.”
