Hot off the wire, MMAWeekly is reporting that Gabriel Gonzaga will take on UFC newcomer Chris Tuchscherer at UFC 102:

A heavyweight bout between former contender Gabriel Gonzaga and newcomer Chris Tuchscherer is likely for UFC 102 on August 29. learned of the match-up Wednesday through multiple sources close to the fight, confirming both parties have agreed to the contest. Itís unknown, however, if bout agreements have been signed.

Though not announced by the UFC, sources say a venue agreement with the Rose Quarter arena is close to finished and an official announcement is expected soon.

For those you who haven't heard of Chris Tuchscherer, he's had a fairly impressive career in the sport. At 17-1, Tuchscherer has only lost once to current Sengoku fighter and former UFC veteran Travis Wiuff. He's the primary training partner of the UFC Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, and obviously with that said, trains out of Minnesota Martial Arts Academy.

Many of you may remember Tuchscherer's involvement with the classic laugh-a-thon that was YAMMA. Tuchscherer received his lone loss in the final of the tournament.

Primarily a power wrestler, Tuchscherer uses that background to put opponents on their back and crush them. Most hardcore fans who've seen him in the cage would classify him as a "lay and pray" type of fighter, but his size at 6'2", 265 lbs. presents huge problems for anyone in the UFC's Heavyweight division.

Tuchscherer has also been linked to a possible stint on the 10th season of the Ultimate Fighter. With a loss at UFC 102, we may still see him there, although I'm unsure how long casting calls will continue for the show.
