Heavyweights Shawn Jordan and Jared Cannonier will kick-start 2015 by squaring off at UFC 182, officials announced recently.

Set for January 3 from Las Vegas, the card features Jon Jones defending his light heavyweight title vs. Daniel Cormier. Ronda Rousey-Cat Zingano is still rumored for the night, as well.

Jordan (16-6) ended a two-fight losing streak by defeating Jack May earlier this year. He was coming off losses to Gabriel Gonzaga and Matt Mitrione after opening his Octagon career with wins over Mike Russow and Pat Barry.

Cannonier (7-0) will be making his debut with the promotion. He went the distance in his last fight, which was a win over Tony Lopez. The Alaskan native had finished each of his previous six opponents.
