The bout, which takes place at the Odeum Colorado in Broomfield, Colorado, is part of the UFC’s first show on the VERSUS network.

Tickets for this event, which is headlined by the light heavyweight showdown between Brandon Vera and Jon Jones, will go on sale Saturday, January 16 at 10 a.m. MT and are $300, $150, $75, and $50 (plus applicable service charges).

Born in Santa Catarina, the 25-year old Dos Santos (10-1) has been on a tear during his UFC stint, finishing Fabricio Werdum, Stefan Struve, Mirko Cro Cop, and most recently Gilbert Yvel en route to a perfect 4-0 Octagon record. In Rio De Janeiro native Gonzaga (11-4) he may be facing his stiffest test, as “Napao” – who is coming off a first round TKO of Chris Tuchscherer last August - is as dangerous on the ground as he is on his feet.

In other March 21st bouts made official this week, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and John “Doomsday” Howard will meet in a welterweight bout that has been gaining a lot of steam thanks to an escalating war of words between the two 170-pound standouts; and former light heavyweight title challenger Vladimir Matyushenko meets jiu-jitsu ace Eliot Marshall.
