Report: Michael Bisping and Mark Munoz Have Agreed to October 26th Bout
By FCF Staff
It appears as though Mark Munoz might have his next bout lined up already, only days removed from the unanimous decision he recorded over Tim Boetsch at UFC 162. A report has surfaced stating that Michael Bisping and Munoz have verbally agreed to fight on October 26th, at a yet to be announced event in Manchester, England.
The match-up is being reported by MMA Junkie.com, which says multiple sources have confirmed the fight and the England bout card. The UFC has not made any official announcement regarding the proposed fight.
Bisping (24-5) is coming off a decision win over Alan Belcher at UFC 159 in April, after he was stopped by Vitor Belfort at UFC on FX 7 in January. The British fighter has gone 3-2 in his last five fights.
Munoz (13-3) returned to action at UFC 162 for the first time since he was knocked out by newly crowned, middleweight champ Chris Weidman last July. The decorated wrestler is 4-1 in his last five bouts.
The UFC has been planning to return to Britain in recent months, since it recently signed a new broadcasting agreement with the region’s BT Sports.
