A matchup between Fighters.com’s seventh-ranked heavyweight “Cigano” Junior dos Santos (9-1) and former UFC title challenger “Napão” Gabriel Gonzaga (11-4) is in the works, Fighters.com has confirmed with a source close to one of the fighters.


Fighters.com hasn’t confirmed the date of the fight and no contracts are signed. If the matchup is in December, it’s likely to occur at UFC 107 at the FedExForum in Memphis December 12. However, according to unconfirmed reports, that card is already stacked with pay-per-view quality matchups. UFC 108 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas January 2 and is also a likely event for the matchup.

Hopefully Gonzaga doesn't come out trading and instead tests dos Santos' ground game. Everyone has already proclaimed that dos Santos is god and he hasn't even hit the mat yet.

I'm not sure just how good Dos Santos is, I haven't seen enough of him, but I do think that he'll put a whooping on Gonzaga.

Dos Santos has had three great fights. Stoppages over two top opponents and a stoppage over a good up and comer.

He will win this fight if it stays standing but its true he hasn't been tested on the ground. Gonzaga needs to do just that to win. However, considering he trains with the Nogs I'm sure he's at least decent on the ground. You've kinda gotta be if you train with those guys.

I am excited about this matchup even more than the previous rumored matchup of Nog and Gonzaga. Jr and Gonzaga are more evenly matched imo.
Who will Nog fight next???
