Gabriel Gonzaga (11-6) dropped a decision to top heavyweight prospect, Brendan Schaub on UFC 121, and also lost to #1 contender, Junior dos Santos this past March. That makes two straight losses, leading to a pink slip for his UFC release. Today, 'Napao' said that while nothing is set in stone, he isn't planning to fight MMA again:

A lot of people are asking me the same question. If I'm gonna fight again... I don't know. I really don't know. Definitely I'm gonna try to fight again in ADCC and BJJ, important grappling tournaments. MMA, I don't know, because I'm not gonna fight for cheap money, and... the UFC was paying me well. Another organization is there, and I don't know if they're interested in me or not, but my main goal is to not fight mma again... but if you have a good prize, I can be back fighting.

Definitely, I can fight again, but I'm not gonna fight soon. I'm not looking for it right now, and I don't know if they want to pay me what I think I should have, to fight. A lot of if's... It's not completely done, it's not completely 'come back', so... maybe.
