Middleweights Mark Munoz and Ryan Jensen have signed to meet at UFC 108 on January 2 in Las Vegas, according to MMAjunkie.
Munoz (6-1), an All-American wrestler at Oklahoma State, improved to 5-0 following back-to-back wins at light heavyweight in the WEC in 2008, but suffered a first-round knockout loss in his UFC debut against Matt Hamill in March. Following his first career defeat, “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” dropped down to middleweight, making his debut at 185-pounds in August with a split decision win over Nick Catone at UFC 102.
After losing his first three bouts inside the Octagon, Jensen (14-5) finally notched his first UFC win in September at UFC Fight Night 19 with a first-round submission of Steve Steinbeiss. Jensen was just 2-4 over his last 6, losing UFC fights to Wilson Gouveia, Demian Maia, and Thales Leites, as well as a Strikeforce bout to Joey Villasenor while picking up two victories on the lower circuit.
UFC 108 is expected to be headlined by middleweight champ Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort and is also rumored to include Rashad Evans vs. Thiago Silva, Junior dos Santos vs. Gabriel Gonzaga, and Carlos Condit vs. Paul Daley.
