The UFC’s first Fox fight card, which takes place Jan. 25 at United Center in Chicago, is now complete with four exciting matches.

In the main event former UFC Lightweight champion Benson “Smooth” Henderson takes on former Strikeforce Lightweight title holder Josh “The Punk” Thomson. The Punk was scheduled to take on Anthony Pettis for the UFC Lightweight title, but an injury forced “Showtime” out of the fight. If Thomson defeats Henderson, he will no doubt solidify himself as the No. 1 contender to the lightweight title.

Other exciting matches include former title contender Gabriel Gonzaga taking on up-and-comer Stipe Miocic in a heavyweight clash, Donald Cerrone vs. Adriano Martins in a lightweight bout and Darren Elkins vs. Jeremy Stephens in a featherweight contest.

The preliminary card will air on Fox Sports 1 before the main card.
