True, it's not Anthony Pettis, but it's the next best thing.
Depending, of course, on whether or not Josh Thomson can overcome the confusion of his latest pairing against Ben Henderson in the UFC on FOX 10 headliner, which is scheduled to take place on Jan. 25, 2014 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
Henderson is trying to overcome a submission loss to Pettis in the main event of UFC 164 back in August -- one that cost him the 155-pound title -- while Thomson is trying to prove his knockout win over Nate Diaz earlier this year on FOX was no fluke.
And the best way to get 'er done is by replicating that performance against "Smooth" in the "Windy City."
UFC on FOX 10 will also feature a heavyweight mash-up between Gabriel Gonzaga and Stipe Miocic, while Donald Cerrone looks to make it two in a row against the dangerous stylings of fellow lightweight Adriano Martins. See the entire fight card and line up here.
