The UFC officially announced that UFC on Fox 10 will take place on Saturday, January 25 from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The main event will feature former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson facing off with former Strikeforce lightweight champion Josh Thomson. In the co-main event Stipe Miocic will battle Gabriel Gonzaga in heavyweight action.
We haven’t seen Henderson in the octagon since he lost his title to Anthony Pettis at UFC 164 in August. Thomson was originally supposed to face Pettis in the main event of next week’s UFC on Fox 9, but Pettis had to bow out due to a knee injury. “The Punk” hasn’t competed since UFC on Fox 7 in his return to the UFC as he stopped Nate Diaz.
The rest of the main card will feature Donald Cerrone battling Adriano Martins in lightweight and in featherweight action Darren Elkins faces Jeremy Stephens.
