A battle will commence on British soil.
That’s what MMAjunkie.com is reporting, anyway. Michael Bisping and Mark Munoz have verbally agreed to fight each other at an unnamed UFC event tentatively scheduled for Oct. 26 in Manchester, England.
The fight, according to Junkie’s sources, will be a five-round main event and broadcast in the U.S. on the new Fox Sports 1 platform, which is scheduled to launch on Aug. 17.
Munoz (13-3) recently told The Choke MMA Show that a fight with either Bisping or Vitor Belfort would make the most sense following his drubbing of Tim Boetsch at UFC 162. It now appears the British fighter is on board.
Bisping (24-5) is coming off a win at UFC 159, wherein he won a technical decision over Alan Belcher. The fight got him back on the winning track after suffering a devastating headkick knockout to Belfort in January.
