As UFC 102 continues to fill up, a middleweight bout has been added as New Jersey fighter, Nick Catone, returns to action to face former NCAA champion wrestler, Mark Munoz, in an undercard match-up.
The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com on Sunday by sources close to the fight.
Currently 1-1 in the UFC, Nick Catone returns in August after a disappointing loss in his last fight to former “Ultimate Fighter” contender, Tim Credeur.
Catone debuted for the promotion in February with a submission win over Derek Downey, after two canceled bouts scheduled against former “Ultimate Fighter” winner, Amir Sadollah.
Mark Munoz comes into UFC 102 following a devastating knockout loss to Matt Hamill at UFC 96 in Columbus, OH. The former NCAA wrestling champion and WEC light heavyweight will make his middleweight debut against Catone in August.
