Fight Night Berlin Headliners Revealed

The UFC returns to Germany on May 31 with a hard-hitting middleweight main event...
Two middleweight standouts will end May with a bang, as Gegard Mousasi and Mark Munoz meet in a five round main event that headlines the UFC's return to Germany on Saturday, May 31.

Taking place at the O2 World Berlin, the event marks the UFC's first in Germany since November 2010's UFC 122 card in Oberhausen.

Ranked number seven in the world at 185 pounds, Munoz has won five of his last seven bouts, including wins over Demian Maia, Chris Leben, and Tim Boetsch. The 12th ranked Mousasi's recent run is just as impressive, as he's gone 6-1-1 in his last eight, with wins over Ovince Saint Preux, Mike Kyle, and Ilir Latifi.

"I've always wanted to go to Berlin," said Munoz. "To be able to compete there is an added bonus. Berlin is a historic place and I'm looking forward to being part of MMA history and putting on a great show for the fans! Mousasi is a great opponent and competitor. I am looking forward to competing against him and getting one step closer to fighting for the title."

"Mark Munoz is an excellent opponent and sportsman," said Mousasi. "I am looking froward to competing in Berlin. It will be a great fight, and I am happy to test my skill set against Mark."

Tickets go on sale to UFC Fight Club members on April 2, with newsletter code holders having the opportunity to purchase tickets on April 3 and a general sale beginning on April 4.
