UFC officials confirmed the fight booking on Saturday evening prior to UFC 163 and the fight card will come from the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.

Bisping (24-5) has won two of his last three fights with the only defeat in that time period coming against top middleweight contender Vitor Belfort. He is coming off a victory over Alan Belcher at UFC 159 and a win over Munoz will put him back into title contention.

Munoz (13-3) is coming off an impressive decision win over Tim Boetsch at UFC 162 and has won five of his last six fights in the UFC. His only lost in his last six fights came against current UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman last year.

The UFC will be announcing more fights for this fight card in the coming weeks and ticket information is expected to be released shortly.
