On the same night when the UFC middleweight title will be on the line, two future championship contenders will square off.
MMAjunkie.com confirmed with sources that Mark Munoz and Tim Boetsch will meet at UFC 162 in July. The event is set to be headlined by Anderson Silva-Chris Weidman for the title.
Munoz (12-3) last fought against Weidman, as he had his four-fight win streak snapped at the hands – or more specifically, the elbow – of “The All-American.”
Boetsch (15-6) is also looking to rebound after having his four-fight win streak halted by Costa Philippou.
The bout is added to previously announced fights between Roger Gracie and Tim Kennedy, and Rafael Cavalcante and Thiago Silva.
