Heavyweights Gabriel Gonzaga and Travis Browne have agreed to face off at The Ultimate Fighter Finale on April 13.

UFC president Dana White announced the news via his Twitter account (@danawhite) on Monday.

Gonzaga (14-6) is riding a three-fight win streak with submission victories over Parker Porter, Ednaldo Oliveira, and Ben Rothwell.  The former title contender is looking to keep his streak alive and get back into top ten ranks in the heavyweight division.

Browne (13-1) is coming off the first loss of his career to Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.  Browne is looking to rebound from that loss and move up the heavyweight ladder.

The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas will host this season’s finale.  The event will air on FX and FUEL TV.
