Heavyweights Gabriel Gonzaga (13-6 MMA, 8-5 UFC) and Geronimo Dos Santos (31-14 MMA, 0-0 UFC) are likely headed to UFC 153.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed with sources close to the event that verbal agreements are in place for the bout. Brazilian website Tatame first reported the pairing.

UFC 153 takes place Oct. 13 at HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro. The event's main card, including a featherweight title bout between Jose Aldo and top contender Erik Koch, airs live on pay-per-view while preliminary-card fights air on FX.

this match is interesting because we will get another chance to see if gabe still has it, and, we get to see a new face ( at least i do because i have no idea who this Geronimo is)

after really looking at this card, it does look pretty promising.

Gonzaga is back to stay if he fights smart like he has been.

I think he stops Geronimo pretty easily if he doesn't get clipped early.

Geronimo has some nasty power and Gonzaga has always been susceptible to fighters hitting him in the face.

Hopefully he replicates the flashes of fight IQ he showed against Oliveira.
