The third match up has been announced for the January 25th UFC on FOX 10 event in Chicago. Rejuvenated Brazilian Gabriel Gonzaga will meet Cleveland’s Stipe Miocic as part of the first FOX event of the year.
Since returning to the UFC in 2012 Gonzaga has won four of five including back to back first round knockouts. He dismantled Dave Herman in a mere 17 seconds and followed that up with a flurry of punches to put away Shawn Jordan at UFC 166. Not only does he have that finishing power in his hands, he possesses some slick submission skills as well.
Stipe Miocic returns to action for the first time since June and looks to notch another win. He was impressive in winning a decision over Roy Nelson at UFC161. Miocic was a perfect 9-0 before losing to Stefan Struve in the main event of UFC on Fuel TV back in September of 2012.
UFC on FOX 10 is headlined by a lightweight battle between Josh Thomson and Benson Henderson. Featherweights Darren Elkins and Jeremy Stephens have also been added to the event that takes place at the United Center in Chicago with main card airing live on FOX.
