The UFC returns to Chicago in late January for UFC on Fox 10 in the United Center. The main event of the show will lsee former lightweight champion Ben Henderson take his first bout since he lost the title, where he meets former Strikeforce lightweight champ Josh Thomson. Thomson had been scheduled for a title shot against Anthony Pettis but an injury forced the champ onto the sidelines and pushed Thomson into this bout.
A co-main event hasn't been announced yet, but there are currently six fights scheduled for the card. Donald Cerrone will look to continue his lightweight run with a win over Adriano Martins, while Stipe Miocic will try to build on his big win over Roy Nelson when he takes on former title challenger Gabriel Gonzaga.
Here's a look at the early card:
