Stipe Miocic 478x270The Windy City is expecting some UFC heavyweights to blow through town.

A match between Stipe Miocic and Gabriel Gonzaga has been verbally agreed to for UFC on Fox 10, company officials announced late Wednesday evening.

The heavyweight match-up adds to the developing fight card, which takes place on Jan. 25 at the United Center in Chicago.

Miocic (10-1) is coming off a unanimous-decision win over Roy Nelson at UFC 161 last June. The only loss in the fighter’s 11-fight career came against Stefan Struve in September 2012. He is 4-1 in the Octagon.

Gonzaga (16-7) is a winner of two consecutive wins in the UFC, both by knockout. In his last outing, Gonzaga dropped Shawn Jordan in the first round of their UFC 166 fight. Since coming back to the organization in early 2012, Gonzaga has groomed a 4-1 record.

UFC on Fox 10 will be headlined by a lightweight title fight between Benson Henderson and Josh Thomson.

    Probably Gonzaga by KO again.

      I believe Miocic’s solid boxing will help him avoid that, and coupled with his wrestling, he’ll secure a win with second round TKO or a decision

    This is good and quite interesting match up. Both fighters have a winning streaks, so match up also make sense. We all know Gonzaga has great ground game, the aspect we didnt see much of Stipe. So maybe Gonz will try to take him down and submit him. But Stipe is far more athletic than Gonz so maybe thats gonna be a hard task. In the stand up they’re both good, Miocic imo has a better movement and technique, but Gonz has power. Im excited for this one, i dont know what the hell is going to happen.
