A middleweight match-up between Tim Boetsch (15-6 MMA, 7-4 UFC) and Mark Munoz (12-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC) is the latest addition to the UFC 162 card slated for July 6 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Boetsch returns to the octagon for the first time since suffering a TKO loss to fast-rising contender Constantinos Philippou at UFC 155. Prior to that loss, Boetsch had strung together 4 straight victories since dropping from light heavyweight to the UFC’s middleweight division.

Boetsch now faces Munoz, who returns to action for the first time since having his four fight win-streak snapped by Chris Weidman this past July. “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” will look to put himself back into title contention with a win over “The Barbarian” this July.

“UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman” takes place July 6 in Las Vegas, Nevada at a yet to be determined venue. The evening’s main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook. The event is headlined by a middleweight title fight between champ Anderson Silva and challenger Chris Weidman.
