Machida will be debuting at middleweight for the bout and is filling in for the injured Michael Bisping. UFC color commentator Joe Rogan broke down the intriguing contest, detailing why the bout is worth watching.
"Mark Munoz is a world class wrestler and has trained with Machida in the past, so he'll know his mannerisms and style," Rogan pointed out. "Machida brings a really unique aspect to the middleweight division that hasn't been seen before: his crazy karate game, wild and unpredictable kicking technique, and sniper-like attacks. It's going to be really interesting to see him battle against a guy like Munoz, a top-flight 185er."
The fight card will also feature a lightweight contest between England's own Ross Pearson and Melvin Guillard, as well as a host of local talent and UFC up-and-comers. Check out the full fight card below and check back this weekend for results from the fights.
