(WSCR) UFC fans might want to circle Jan. 25, 2014 on their calendars.

That Saturday evening at the United Center in Chicago, No. 4 lightweight contender Josh Thomson will take on the No. 1 lightweight contender Ben Henderson at the UFC on FOX 10 headliner.

“This is a great opportunity for both of us – for him to get back on the winning track and for me to get one step closer to my title shot, one that was taken away from me,” the ex-Strikeforce titleholder Thomson told 670 The Score’s Brendan McCaffrey. “We know it’s a business. We’re civil with each other. We respect each other a lot. I think this is going to be a great fight. The people who are going to win in this fight are the fans. The fans are going to get a great fight out of this. That’s what I think it’s going to be.”

Tickets for the fight go on sale at 11 a.m. CT this Friday, Dec. 6.
