UFC Quick Quote: Full-time fighter, Gabriel Gonzaga, dreams about being champ


"My life has changed a little bit from the last fight. Before I had to work and fight, but now I can just train. I'm just one step away from my dream of becoming the champion of the UFC. Since I've moved here I've been able to live my dream. I'm only missing one thing: the belt. He [Randy Couture] is an excellent fighter and he's very aggressive. I respect him as a person, but I'm there to do my job inside of The Octagon and I want to be the champ of the UFC."

-- Top heavyweight contender Gabriel Gonzaga tells the Boston Herald that he is now training full-time and is prepared to realize his dream of becoming a UFC champion when he goes up against current division titleholder Randy Couture at UFC 74: "Respect" on August 25 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
