The fight booking was announced by the UFC on Monday evening.

UFC on FOX 13 will come from the US Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona and will be headlined by a heavyweight bout as former UFC champion Junior dos Santos meets Stipe Miocic.

Saunders (17-6-2) returned to the UFC in August and submitted Chris Heatherly to win a performace of the night bonus. He has won four of his last five fights and three of those wins have come by stoppage.

Riggs (40-14, 1NC) was recently signed by the UFC after he was released from his Bellator contract. He was scheduled to return in September, but he suffered a gun injury at his home that forced him to pull out of the event.
