For Gegard Mousasi, his next fight will be against Mark Munoz in Germany.
After Mousasi appeared on “UFC Tonight” asking to face Munoz Wednesday, UFC officials announced the main event for UFC Fight Night 41 on May 31 from the O2 World Berlin in Germany.
Mousasi, a former Strikeforce champion, was bested by Lyoto Machida earlier this year. Munoz is also coming off a loss to Machida, as he was knocked out by “The Dragon” last October.
“I think it makes sense,” said Mousasi, during a recent appearance on UFC Tonight. “He comes to fight. I expect a good fight…if I’m fighting him.”
The fight is the only bout booked to date for the show, which is scheduled to air on UFC Fight Pass as part of a day-night doubleheader with another Fight Night card from Brazil.
