As UFC 102 continues to fill up, a middleweight bout has been added as New Jersey fighter, Nick Catone, returns to action to face former NCAA champion wrestler, Mark Munoz, in an undercard match-up.
The bout was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com on Sunday by sources close to the fight.
Currently 1-1 in the UFC, Nick Catone returns in August after a disappointing loss in his last fight to former “Ultimate Fighter” contender, Tim Credeur.
Catone debuted for the promotion in February with a submission win over Derek Downey, after two canceled bouts scheduled against former “Ultimate Fighter” winner, Amir Sadollah.
Mark Munoz comes into UFC 102 following a devastating knockout loss to Matt Hamill at UFC 96 in Columbus, OH. The former NCAA wrestling champion and WEC light heavyweight will make his middleweight debut against Catone in August.
Numerous fights for UFC 102 have been confirmed by sources, but as of yet the promotion has not announced anything officially for the card. Current rumors have the show taking place on Aug 29 in Portland, Oregon, but as of now negotiations are still under way to solidify a location and venue.
