An intriguing middleweight scrap between wrestling standout Mark Munoz (12-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC) and undefeated prospect Chris Weidman (8-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC) takes center stage at UFC on FUEL TV 4.
The headlining matchup was revealed on Tuesday's new edition of FUEL TV's "UFC Tonight."
The contest takes place July 11, though a location for the event has yet to be revealed.
The Wednesday night event is also expected to feature a light heavyweight bout between James Te Huna and Brandon Vera, though that bout has yet to be officially announced.
Munoz returns after being forced to bow out of a key contest with Chael Sonnen at January's UFC on FOX 2 event. Munoz was replaced by Michael Bisping, who would go on to lose a decision to Sonnen, who will now challenge Anderson Silva for the middleweight title in July. Munoz is also considered one of the top contenders in the division after racking up a four-fight win streak and boasting a 7-1 mark in his past eight fights.
Meanwhile, it was Munoz's bad luck that allowed Weidman to step into the UFC on FOX 2 card on short notice, taking Bisping's slot against Demian Maia. While the fight proved a sloppy affair, Weidman grinded out a decision win to remain undefeated in his eight-bout career and earn his fourth UFC win in less than 11 months.
