Luke BarnattMiddleweights Luke Barnatt and Andrew Craig will square off at UFC Fight Night 30: Bisping vs. Munoz on Oct. 26 in Manchester, England.

UFC officials announced the bout on Thursday.

Fighting out of Cambridge, Barnatt (6-0) will be competing on his home turf for the event.

He made his way to the Octagon via The Ultimate Fighter: Team Jones vs. Team Sonnen. Although Barnatt lost in the quarterfinal round of the reality series, he bounced back at the finale, earning a unanimous decision victory over Collin Hart.

Craig (9-1) was called by the UFC as late replacement for Jared Hamman. It proved to be a golden opportunity for the Texan, as he upset Kyle Noke at UFC on FX 2.

He lost via decision to Ronny Markes earlier this year, but rebounded with a victory over Chris Leben in May. Craig is currently 3-1 during his UFC tenure.

A pivotal middleweight bout between Michael Bisping and Mark Munoz headlines the UFC Fight Night 30 event at the Manchester Arena. The event airs live on Fox Sports 2 in the United States.
