UFC 184: Mark Munoz vs. Roan Carneiro booked for Feb. 28 in Los Angeles

Caio Magalhaes out, Roan Carneiro in.

After several months on the sidelines, Mark Munoz will return to the Octagon to face Carneiro at the upcoming UFC 184: "Weidman vs. Belfort" pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for Feb. 28, 2015 inside the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

UFC Tonight confirmed the booking on Wednesday.

Munoz (13-5) was squashed by Chris Weidman in July 2012, before storming back to capture a unanimous decision win over Tim Boetsch. Unfortunately, "The Filipino Wrecking Machine" couldn't parlay his "Barbarian" win into a run for the middleweight title, and was instead finished by Lyoto Machida and Gegard Mousasi in consecutive fights.

At age 36, this may be his last shot to get something going.

Opposing him is one of the longtime veterans of the sport. Carneiro (19-9) -- also 36 -- had a brief and fairly unspectacular run through the ranks of ZUFFA from 2007-08. Since then, he's gone 7-1 with four finishes and looks to be (finally) hitting his stride.

Who ya' got?

UFC 184 features a championship doubleheader in the main- and co-main events, with middleweight kingpin Chris Weidman leading the charge against top-ranked 185-pound contender, Vitor Belfort. Not to be outdone, Ronda Rousey will defend her 135-pound tiara against Cat Zingano in the supporting act.
