A long overdue middleweight match-up appears to be on deck this fall in the form of a fight between UFC stars Michael Bisping and Mark Munoz. Both have lurked at the top of the division for years without ever challenging for a title but haven’t crossed paths. However, that should change on October 26 when the UFC heads to Manchester, England for an event believed to be UFC on FS 4.
Officials have not announced the card or bout but MMAJunkie has confirmed verbal agreements are at least in place with sources on both sides of the scrap. The effort is also expected to be a five-round main event.
The meeting will mark the 24-5 Bisping’s return to his native England after a three-year break from competing in the country. He was last seen scoring a decision win over Alan Belcher this past April.
Munoz (13-3) is fresh off a one-sided outpointing of Tim Boetsch at UFC 162. The victory was his fifth in six fights.
