Middleweight action has been added to the July 6 lineup for UFC 162 in the form of a match-up between Tim Boestch and Mark Munoz. Both men are near the upper-echelon of their respective division thanks to a number of notable wins despite losses in their most recent rumbles.
UFC officials have confirmed the clash’s presence on the card’s lineup. UFC 162 is headlined by a title-defense from 185-pound champion Anderson Silva who faces unbeaten grappler Chris Weidman at the event.
Boetsch is 16-5 in his career with a 4-1 mark at middleweight. “The Barbarian” had beaten the likes of Yushin Okami and Hector Lombard prior to suffering a strike based defeat to Costas Philippou last December.
The 12-3 Munoz has been out of action since losing to Weidman last May. He too had won four straight before the stumble including success against C.B. Dollaway, Demian Maia, and Chris Leben.
