He ain't pretty no more

Mirko Cro Cop certainly got his over Gabriel Gonzaga at Fight Night 64.

Eight years ago, the Brazilian shocked the world by beating the master at his own game. Gonzaga scored a brutal head-kick KO against the Croat, who had become famous for the head-seeking missiles attached to the bottoms of his legs.

It looked like Gonzaga was going to get another victory over Cro Cop in the main event of UFC Krakow as he dominated him for the first two rounds.

However, the course of the fight changed in the third stanza when Cro Cop rocked his opponent with sharp elbows during a clinch at the fence. Cro Cop then finished the fight off by unleashing some devastating ground and pound until the referee had seen enough and awarded him the TKO victory.

Gonzaga uploaded a selfie to his official instagram, which shows that those elbows quite literally left their mark on the Brazilian.

Guys i did my best !! Pessoal eu fiz o meu melhor
