Big brawling heavyweights Junior dos Santos (9-1) and Gabriel Gonzaga (11-4) will likely fight at UFC 108 on January 2nd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Nothing is signed, but a verbal agreement is in place for the fight.

Dos Santos is coming off a impressive win over Mirko Cro Cop at UFC 103 “Franklin vs Belfot”. The Brazilian striker has made a quick name for himself in the UFC by racking up wins over Fabricio Werdum, Stefan Struve and Mirko Cro Cop.

Gabriel “Napao” Gonzaga made quick work of UFC newcomer Chris Tuchscherer at UFC 102 “Couture vs Nogueria”. The win tainted, as a low blow by Gonzaga hurt Tuchscherer, who seemed to never fully recover.
