The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to England this Saturday (Oct. 26, 2013) with UFC Fight Night 30: 'Machida vs. Munoz' on Fox Sports 2. The bout is headlined by Lyoto Machida making his middleweight debut against Mark Munoz.
Munoz was originally scheduled to face Michael Bisping, but an injury forced Bisping off the card and Machida was pulled from his bout with Tim Kennedy and tabbed as the replacement. To make things more complicated, Munoz and Machida planned on working together to prepare for their matches.
Following the UFC 161 pay-per-view (PPV), UFC commentators Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg broke down the Manchester card. For a free card on Fox Sport 2, it's very possible that the winner of Machida and Munoz could be fighting for a title shot, which makes this a "can't miss" event.
