Bisping takes on Munoz at Phones 4u Arena
Phones 4u Arena Manchester will light up this Autumn when Britain’s Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping faces one of his toughest challenges to date against Mark ‘The Filipino Wrecking Machine’ Munoz.
Tickets for the Saturday 26 October show go on sale from Monday 19 August at 10.00am, priced:
£473 – VIP
£190.50 – Diamond

Manchester-born Bisping has not fought on British soil since October 2010 when he defeated Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 120 in London. The Ultimate Fighter and UFC veteran, currently ranked No. 4, knows victory against No. 6 ranked Munoz will put him within striking distance of the title.
Speaking ahead of the event, Bisping said, “First and foremost I’m thrilled to be back in England. It has been three long years since I last fought at home in front of the people who’ve supported me my entire career.”
“I’m really up for this challenge against Munoz. I wanted the best possible opponent and I got him. I respect Mark as an opponent and on a personal level he’s one of the nicest men you will ever meet, but he’s getting beat. I’m sending the British fans home very happy.”
The full card for UFC Manchester 2013 will be announced shortly. All bouts live and subject to change.
