  • Junior ‘Cigano’ Dos Santos vs. Gabriel ‘Napao’ Gonzaga
  • Anthony ‘Rumble’ Johnson vs. John ‘Doomsday’ Howard

From a source close to us:

On Wednesday, the Ultimate Fighting Championship announced the co-main event for the upcoming UFC on Versus show as top ten heavyweight, Junior Dos Santos, returns to action to face fellow Brazilian, Gabriel Gonzaga.

The two heavyweights were originally scheduled to meet at UFC 108 earlier this month, but Gonzaga fell prey to a staph infection that put him out of action.

Now back and healthy, Gonzaga is looking for an opportunity to get back into the top ten, and he has quite the challenge ahead of him facing Dos Santos.

Since his debut in the UFC in October 2008, Dos Santos has put the heavyweight division on notice that he’s ready for any and all challengers. The heavy handed fighter has defeated notable opponents such as Fabricio Werdum and Mirko Crocop.

With a win, Dos Santos could be poised for a shot at the heavyweight title in the near future, while Gonzaga looks to get back into the title picture himself with this fight.
