On Friday FoxSports.com reported a heavyweight matchup between Matt Mitrione and Gabriel Gonzaga has officially been added to UFC on FOX 13.

Mitrione (8-3), a veteran of the 1oth season of The Ultimate Fighter, is coming off a very impressive 41-second knockout over Derrick Lewis at UFC Fight Night 50 earlier this month. Prior to this victory ‘Meathead’ scored a first round knockout over Shawn Jordan at the The Ultimate Fighter China Finale in March, earning a ‘Performance of the Night’ bonus in the process.

Gonzaga (16-8), a nine year veteran of the UFC, is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Stipe Miocic at UFC on FOX 1o in January. Prior to this loss ‘Napão’ was riding a two-fight winning streak, which included knockouts over Shawn Jordan and Dave Herman.

UFC on FOX 13 is currently scheduled to take place on Dec. 13 at the US Airways Center in downtown Phoenix. While a main event for the card has yet to be announced, a heavyweight matchup between former champion Junior dos Santos and Miocic has been linked to the card.

Here is how the rest of the card is shaping up:
