According to MMAWeekly.com, heavyweights Gabriel Gonzaga and Ben Rothwell will meet in January. The two are slated for the Brazil card, which has yet to be confirmed by the UFC but is expected to go down January 19.
Gonzaga (13-6) returned to the UFC earlier this year, submitting Ednaldo Oliveira. He was released from the UFC in 2010. Gonzaga was expected to fight in October, but his match with Geronimo dos Santos was scrapped.
Rothwell (32-8) has alternated wins and losses in his last seven, but stopped Brendan Schaub by first round knockout this year.
