As if we have not been bombarded with enough middleweight UFC news this week, Ariel Helwani confirmed on “UFC Tonight” Tuesday evening. Mark Munoz will be battling fellow middleweight, Chris Weidman at UFC on Fuel TV 4 on July 11. The middleweight bout will headline the card; the location of the event is still undetermined.
This will be Munoz first fight back following surgery to clean bone fragments from an ailing elbow. Before the surgery Munoz was set to take on Chael Sonnen for the number one contender spot but later withdrew from the fight due to the elbow problem. Mark Munoz is coming into the middleweight tilt boasting an impressive four fight win streak. With yet another impressive win against Weidman, he sets himself up for a title shot in the near future.
Weidman, on the other hand, is undefeated in his professional MMA career (4-0 in the UFC). His most recent win was a unanimous decision over a very tough Damian Maia. The former All American wrestler is looking to stay undefeated against his fellow wrestle in Munoz.
Both fighters are coming into the bout very hot and it is sure to be a middleweight war.Tags: featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news, UFC on FOX, UFC on FOX 2, ufc on fox 3, UFC on Fuel, UFC on FX
