UFC announces Gegard Mousasi vs. Mark Munoz as main event of May 31st Berlin show

The UFC's first show in Germany for 4 years now has its main event.

For the 3rd day running we have a new main event confirmed for an upcoming UFC show. Today on the official UK twitter account, it was confirmed that the headlining act for the May 31st return to Germany will be between middleweights Gegard Mousasi and Mark Munoz:

Mousasi (34-4-2) won his UFC debut over Ilir Latifi at UFC on Fuel 9 in Sweden before dropping to middleweight, where he was recently defeated via decision by Lyoto Machida in a February main event. While Mousasi lost, he did pocket $50,000 in FOTN bonus money and put in a good performance nevertheless.

Munoz (13-4) went 1-1 in 2013, dominating Tim Boetsch at UFC 162 before suffering a 1st round head kick KO against Machida in an October Fight Night card in Manchester. "The Filipino Wrecking Machine" is no stranger to five-round main events, as this will be his 4th scheduled one in his last 5 bouts. Unfortunately for him, his last two main event appearances have ended in brutal KO losses, with the other one coming to Chris Weidman.

This is the first time the UFC has traveled to Germany since 2010 for UFC 122 (on Spike TV), when Yushin Okami beat Nate Marquardt in the main event, with their debut in the country coming one year prior at UFC 99: Wanderlei vs. Franklin I.

The UFC Fight Night: Berlin tickets go on sale on April 2nd, and the whole card will be streamed exclusively on Fight Pass. This is part of a dual-event day for the UFC, with the TUF Brazil 3 finale airing on Fox Sports 1 later that evening.
