Chris Weidman-Mark Munoz July 11
Munoz-Weidman is expected to headline the fourth UFC card on the network. A location for the event has not yet been determined.
"Finally the cat is out of the bag," Weidman said on Twitter. "So excited for this one."
Munoz (12-2) was scheduled to face Chael Sonnen in a middleweight title elimination bout on Jan. 28 in Chicago, but Munoz injured his right elbow and was forced to withdraw.
Weidman (8-0) is one of the fastest-rising fighters in UFC. During his most recent outing on Jan. 28 in Chicago, Weidman defeated former top contender Demian Maia by unanimous decision.
