A middleweight contest between two of the best wrestlers in the UFC headlines UFC on FUEL TV 4 as powerhouse contender Mark Munoz takes on undefeated prospect Chris Weidman at the July 11 event.

Ariel Helwani officially announced the bout on Tuesday’s edition of “UFC Tonight” on FUEL TV.

A location and venue for the event has yet to be revealed.

Munoz (12-2) returns to the octagon after undergoing surgery on his elbow to fix an injury that forced him out of a UFC on FOX 2 bout against Chael Sonnen. The fight against Sonnen was slated to determine the number one contender in the UFC middleweight division, and Munoz is understandably disappointed with the missed opportunity. “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” looks to reassert his position as one of the division’s top contenders at UFC on FUEL TV 4.

Weidman (8-0) earned the biggest win of his career last January when he defeated Demian Maia by a lopsided unanimous decision. Weidman took the bout against Maia on just 11 days notice and while it wasn’t pretty, the “All-American” grinded out the win. The 27-year-old holds a 4-0 record in the UFC and will headline a UFC event for the first time in his young career.
