As reported last week on Fighters.com, Michael Bisping was forced out of his main event bout with Mark Munoz to undergo eye surgery. With the event scheduled to take place in Manchester, England, Bisping’s home town, the last thing he wanted was to be sitting cage side instead of fighting. Bisping took to twitter to post a picture of the damaged eye this morning that forced him off the card.
UFC Fight Night Machida Vs Munoz takes place on October 26 at Manchester, in Manchester, England. In the main event, Lyoto Machida will be making his middleweight debut in a five round bout against Mark Munoz to see who takes a big step up in the middleweight division. In the co main event, lightweights Ross Pearson and Melvin Guillard are set to throw down.
