A heavyweight matchup between Gabriel Gonzaga (16-7 MMA, 11-6 UFC) and Stipe Miocic (10-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) is the latest addition to the UFC’s first FOX-televised event of 2014.

UFC on FOX 10 takes place Jan. 25 at United Center in Chicago, the third straight January the venue has hosted a FOX show. The main card, including a Benson Henderson vs. Josh Thomson headliner, airs on FOX following prelims that are expected to air on FOX Sports 1 and stream at MMAjunkie.

The 34-year-old Gonzaga left the UFC in 2010 after struggling through a 3-5 stretch. However, after a year away from the sport, the submission ace returned to the sport and is 5-1 in his past six fights. All five of those victories have come by finish, including consecutive first-round knockout wins over Shawn Jordan and Dave Herman.

Meanwhile, Miocic opened his career with nine straight wins to open his career before suffering a September 2012 loss to Stefan Struve. He’s since rebounded with an impressive decision win over Roy Nelson at June’s UFC 161 event.

With the addition to the card, UFC on FOX 10 now includes:

Benson Henderson vs. Josh Thomson
Darren Elkins vs. Jeremy Stephens
