Gabriel Gonzaga has replaced Rob Broughton and will return to the UFC against heavyweight newcomer Ednaldo Oliveira at UFC 142 on January 14 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Gonzaga (12-6) retired after being cut by the UFC following back-to-back losses to Junior dos Santos and Brendan Schaub in 2010, but returned in October with a third-round submission on the regional circuit. Oliveira (13-0-1), a training partner of UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos, has scored stoppages in 10 of his 13 wins.
UFC 142 is headlined by UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes and also features Vitor Belfort vs. Anthony Johnson.
