Gabriel Gonzaga, Ben Rothwell To Clash In Brazil This January

A heavyweight battle between Gabriel Gonzaga and Ben Rothwell is on deck for January, according to a report by MMAWeekly.com.

Gonzaga and Rothwell would meet January 19 at a yet-to-be-named UFC event from Brazil. The card is not slated to be a pay-per-view, meaning it will likely air on either FX or Fuel TV.

Gonzaga (13-6) made his triumphant return to the UFC by submitting Ednaldo Oliveira earlier this year in Brazil. He was slated to meet Geronimo dos Santos in October, but dos Santos pulled out of the fight.

Rothwell (32-8) is coming off a convincing knockout finish of Brendan Schaub. He has alternated wins and losses in each of his last seven bouts.
