UFC 162 fight card finalized, Mark Munoz vs. Tim Boetsch in featured prelim


The fight card for next month’s UFC 162 event is set with the official lineups for the FX and Facebook portions of the preliminary card.

mark-munoz-10.jpgUFC 162 takes place July 6 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The main card, including a middleweight title fight between champion Anderson Silva (33-4 MMA, 16-0 UFC) and challenger Chris Weidman (9-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC), airs on pay-per-view.

Prior to the five-bout PPV lineup, seven fights take place on the prelims.

The featured prelim includes two middleweight contenders: Tim Boetsch (15-6 MMA, 7-4 UFC) vs. Mark Munoz (12-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC).
Munoz fights for the first time in a year following a July 2012 knockout loss to Chris Weidman, which spoiled his title hopes and a four-fight win streak. Boetsch, meanwhile, had a four-fight win streak of his own snapped in December when he suffered a TKO loss to Constantinos Philippou. Both look to get back in the title picture with a win at UFC 162.

The full UFC 162 card includes:

MAIN CARD (Pay-per-view, 10 p.m. ET)

PRELIMINARY CARD (FX, 8 p.m. ET)

PRELIMINARY CARD (Facebook, 6:30 p.m. ET)
