UFConFOX10The UFC on FOX 10 event will take place on Saturday, January 25, at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The event will be headlined by the lightweight fight between former UFC lightweight champion Ben Henderson and former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson.

The co-main event will feature a heavyweight matchup between rising contender Stipe Miocic and former title challenger Gabriel Gonzaga.

Henderson (19-3) is coming off the submission loss to Anthony Pettis in his last outing at UFC 164. Henderson had successfully defended his title three times before the loss and will look to get back in the win column against Thomson.

Thomson (20-5, 1NC) is coming off a huge TKO win over Nate Diaz in his last outing at UFC on FOX 7. Thomson became the first fighter to stop Diaz via TKO in his career.

Miocic (10-1) is coming off a huge win over Roy Nelson in his last outing at UFC 161. Miocic suffered his lone defeat in the fight before Nelson, getting knocked out by Stefan Struve in the second round.

Gonzaga (16-7) is coming off back-t0-back wins since losing to Travis Browne at the TUF 17 Finale. The former title challenger will look to take out the rising contender in Miocic, and insert himself back into the mix of heavyweight contenders with his third straight win.
