The UFC has booked a compelling and pivotal middleweight fight for its upcoming card in Manila, as Gegard Mousasi will battle fellow contender, Costa Philippou.

Mousasi (35-6-2) quickly took out Dan Henderson in January, and has gone 3-2 now since he joined the UFC in 20103. The well rounded fighter is currently ranked #7 in the UFC’s middleweight division.

Philippou (13-4), on the other hand, bombed out Lorenz Larkin in his last fight, which went down in May, 2014. The heavy handed fighter is 2-3 in his last 5 scraps, and is ranked #12.

In addition, the UFC has announced that surging welterweight Neil Magny (14-3) will face Hyun Gyu Lim (13-4-1) at the May 16th card.

UFC FN 66 will feature a featherweight scrap between Urijah Faber and Frankie Edgar in the main event.
