Lyoto Machida Replaces Michael Bisping, Fights Mark Munoz At UFC England

UFC Fight Night from England has received a new main event, and knocked another planned one out for the time being.

Michael Bisping has suffered an eye injury in training and forced out, with Lyoto Machida taking his place vs. Mark Munoz in England. The card is set for October 26 from Manchester.

Machida, a former UFC light heavyweight champion, is making his 185-pound debut. He was scheduled to fight Tim Kennedy in November, but Kennedy will now need a new opponent to remain on the card.
