Gabriel Gonzaga’s Camp to File a Complaint with NSAC Over Illegal Elbows

Marco Alvan, the manager of heavyweight contender Gabriel Gonzaga, has revealed that they will be filing an official complaint with the Nevada State Athletic Commission following this past Saturday night’s loss to Travis Browne at TUF 17 Finale in Las Vegas, Nevada, due to what they describe as a series of “illegal” elbows.

Alvan, speaking via his Facebook page, said:

“I need to review it to count how many illegal elbows but its a fact that it was illegal. I contacted Keith Kizer head of Nevada Athletic Comission and he told me to file a complaint and he would review it. I true believe it was illegal. I never complaint about a losses who knows me know that I handle it good but illegal we can not accept.”

“We appeal to the Nevada State Athletic Commission because we think were the illegal elbows neck. Whenever we had accepted any defeat, but this was illegal. This video is clear about the elbow… I very hope the commission look it carefully and make a correct decision about it. We respect Travis and his camp but it was a sad night. We hope this result can be fixed and get a new fight between them.”
