The UFC announced what many have figured for several weeks, as Mark Munoz will face Chris Weidman in the main event of UFC on FUEL TV 4. A location has not been announced, but the card will take place July 11.
Along with Munoz-Weidman, Jon Fitch vs. Aaron Simpson is expected to take place the same night. UFC Tonight first confirmed the main event on Tuesday.
Munoz has been on the sidelines rehabbing from elbow surgery, as nearly 30 fragments were removed from his elbow. He was scheduled to face Chael Sonnen in a No. 1 contender match earlier this year, but the injury knocked him out of the bout.
Weidman has won all four of his UFC bouts, including a victory over former contender Demian Maia. The rising prospect will face a stern test in Munoz.
