Mark Munoz to Face Roan Carneiro at UFC 184

Mark Munoz will fight Roan Carneiro at UFC 184 in Los Angeles, according to a report on Wednesday.

“UFC Tonight” revealed the pairing during their broadcast. UFC 184 will take place on Feb. 28 at Staples Center.

Munoz was set to make his comeback from injury with a UFC 184 fight with Caio Magalhaes. The ink on the contract wasn’t even dry yet before Magalhaes had to withdraw from the bout due to an infection that will apparently affect his timing for the February card.

Carneiro will be making his return to the UFC with the Los Angeles fight. The last time he was in the Octagon, Carneiro fought Ryo Chonan, dropping a split decision at UFC 88 in 2008. He’s gone 7-1 since his last UFC tenure.

UFC 184 is scheduled to be headlined by a middleweight title fight between champion Chris Weidman and challenger Vitor Belfort.
