According to MMAWeekly.com, heavyweights Gabriel Gonzaga and Ben Rothwell will meet in January. The two are slated for the Brazil card, which has yet to be confirmed by the UFC but is expected to go down January 19.

Gonzaga (13-6) returned to the UFC earlier this year, submitting Ednaldo Oliveira. He was released from the UFC in 2010. Gonzaga was expected to fight in October, but his match with Geronimo dos Santos was scrapped.

Rothwell (32-8) has alternated wins and losses in his last seven, but stopped Brendan Schaub by first round knockout this year.

Gonzaga should win this fight but Rothwell could easily knock Gonzaga out as well, very entertaining bottom of the main card fight for two former contenders who aren't going anywhere right now but are interested in building momentum.

Good scrap both are big boys and heavy hitters. If Gonzaga can get top position on Big Ben I can see him getting the submission but if they stand and bang I got a feeling Big Ben puts Gonzaga to sleep. This fight is going to be a hard one for me to make a pick on

Big Ben has looked pretty great lately. If GG keeps it standing, he might be the one in trouble.
