According to MMAFighting, middleweight Mark Munoz will return to action against Tim Boetsch at UFC 162.
The event takes place July 6 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Either Mandalay Bay Events Center or the larger MGM Grand Garden Arena will host the gig.
Munoz had his four-fight winning streak snapped by Chris Weidman the last time he took center stage. “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” hasn’t been seen since the July contest.
Boetsch will also be looking to bounce back from a loss. “The Barbarian” dropped a TKO to Costas Philippou at UFC 155 in December.
Here are the athletes expected to perform Fourth of July weekend:
Thiago Silva vs. Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante
Mark Munoz vs. Tim Boetsch
Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva (UFC middleweight champion)
