Matt Mitrione (pictured) may have respectfully wanted a piece of Andrei Arlovski next, but it appears the UFC has different plans for “Meathead.”

On Friday, FoxSports.com confirmed with UFC officials Mitrione will battle Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC on FOX 13.

The December 13 event takes place inside US Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona.

Mitrione is just 14 days removed from knocking out Derrick Lewis. He’ll be riding a two-fight winning streak into the shootout.

Gonzaga, meanwhile, hasn’t been seen since dropping a unanimous decision to Stipe Miocic in January. The former heavyweight top contender has won five of his past seven contests.

Here is the card’s updated roster:

Joe Ellenberger vs. Bryan Barberena

Drew Dober vs. Jamie Varner

Matt Mitrione vs. Gabriel Gonzaga

Alistair Overeem vs. Stefan Struve

Junior dos Santos vs. Stipe Miocic
