Before lightweight standouts Benson Henderson and Josh Thomson take center stage this Saturday at UFC on Fox 10, heavyweights Stipe Miocic and Gabriel Gonzaga will go to war.
In a co-main event that will dictate the next budding contender in a top-heavy division, Miocic vs. Gonzaga will be sure to produce.
For Miocic, a young and hungry prospect yearning for his spot among the heavyweight's best, a victory over a storied veteran like "Napao" would cement his contender status for 2014.
As for Gonzaga, a Brazilian comprised of ungodly knockout power and scintillating submissions kills, knocking off a promising young gun like Miocic would allow the 34-year-old to work his way toward a title shot sometime in 2015.
Here's their final head-to-toe breakdown on the doorstep of a very interesting showdown on Jan. 25.
