    Default Bisping vs Munoz?

    MMAjunkie.com ([url
    www.mmajunkie.com[/url]) has learned from sources close to the event that Michael Bisping (24-5 MMA, 14-5 UFC) and Mark Munoz (13-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC) have verbally agreed to meet at an as-yet-unnamed UFC event tentatively scheduled for Oct. 26 in Manchester, England.

    The bout is expected to serve as a five-round main event for the card, which is expected to take place at Manchester Arena (formerly known as Manchester Evening News Arena).

    UFC officials were unable to offer confirmation on either the matchup or the event, but multiple sources outside of the promotion indicated the plans were firm and an announcement was expected shortly. The sources could not confirm the official name or number of the event, but it seems likely to air in North America on FOX Sports 1 and not as a pay-per-view event.

    No other bouts are currently rumored for the card.

    Bisping was recently on the cusp of a long-awaited title shot before a January loss to Vitor Belfort ruined his chances. However, he's since rebounded with a technical decision win over Alan Belcher and remains a top contender at middleweight. He also hasn't always had the best opinion of his new opponent, who he often refereed to as both "fat" and "out of shape" for Munoz's devastating knockout loss to now champ Chris Weidman.

    Meanwhile, Munoz books his next appearance less than one week after earning a convincing win over Tim Boetsch at this past weekend's UFC 162 event. It was Munoz's first fight in one year after battling through both injury and depression following the loss to Weidman. Still, Munoz is now 5-1 in his past six fights, and with Anderson Silva's recent loss, the UFC 185-pound division is now wide open.

    This took me a long time to format and I hope it worked...this little box keeps bouncing around from top to bottom on me for some reason.

    I like this fight and I hope (I think I hope anyway) that Munoz beats Bisping.

    HOSS-Bork, you should spend more time brushing up on your MMA history, and less time complementing guys on how young their penises taste.
