UFC on FOX 13 has received another compelling, heavyweight bout, as Matt Mitrione will battle Gabriel Gonzaga at the December 13th event.

The upcoming card will be hosted by the U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona.

The fight is being reported by FOX Sports.com and the UFC has retweeted news of the match-up.

Recently the UFC announced that heavyweights Alistair Overeem and Stefan Struve have agreed to fight at the Phoenix bound event.

Mitirone (8-3) will be looking to extend his winning streak to three, as the 36 year-old, NFL vet has scored knockout wins over Shawn Jordan and Derrick Lewis in his last two fights.

Prior to that Mitrione was choked out by Brendan Schaub at UFC 165 last September.

Gonzaga (16-8) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Stipe Miocic in January, after stopping Jordan and Dave Herman. “Napao” is currently ranked #12 in the UFC’s heavyweight division.
