    Michael Bisping vs. Mark Munoz slated for UFC in Manchester on Oct. 26

    For the first time in three years, "The Count" will fight on English soil, it seems, and he'll welcome a "Filipino Wrecking Machine" into the octagon.

    MMAjunkie.com(www.mmajunkie.com) has learned from sources close to the event thatMichael Bisping (24-5 MMA, 14-5 UFC) and Mark Munoz (13-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC) have verbally agreed to meet at an as-yet-unnamed UFC event tentatively scheduled for Oct. 26 in Manchester, England.

    The bout is expected to serve as a five-round main event for the card, which is expected to take place at Manchester Arena (formerly known as Manchester Evening News Arena).

    UFC officials were unable to offer confirmation on either the matchup or the event, but multiple sources outside of the promotion indicated the plans were firm and an announcement was expected shortly. The sources could not confirm the official name or number of the event, but it seems likely to air in North America on FOX Sports 1 and not as a pay-per-view event.

    No other bouts are currently rumored for the card.

    Bisping was recently on the cusp of a long-awaited title shot before a January loss to Vitor Belfortruined his chances. However, he's since rebounded with a technical decision win over Alan Belcherand remains a top contender at middleweight. He also hasn't always had the best opinion of his new opponent, who he often refereed to as both "fat" and "out of shape" for Munoz's devastating knockout loss to now champ Chris Weidman.

    Meanwhile, Munoz books his next appearance less than one week after earning a convincing win overTim Boetsch at this past weekend's UFC 162 event. It was Munoz's first fight in one year after battling through both injury and depression following the loss to Weidman. Still, Munoz is now 5-1 in his past six fights, and with Anderson Silva's recent loss, the UFC 185-pound division is now wide open.

    UFC 152 lineup finalized, Dunham vs. Grant demoted to FX-televised prelims

    Following the cancellation of UFC 151 and some subsequent card-shuffling, the lineup for next month's UFC 152 event is again finalized.

    The event, of course, now features a headliner between light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones (16-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC) and Vitor Belfort (21-9 MMA, 10-5 UFC).

    To make room for the title fight – one of two on the card – a lightweight bout of Evan Dunham (13-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) vs. T.J. Grant (18-5 MMA, 5-3 UFC) has been demoted to the event's preliminary card.

    UFC 152 takes place Sept. 22 at Toronto's Air Canada Centre, and five fights are part of the PPV lineup. FX and Facebook carry the prelims.

    Jones shifted to the UFC 152 card after Dan Henderson pulled out of this weekend's canceled UFC 151 event. That set off a chain reaction in which Chael Sonnen was tapped a replacement, though Jones turned down the fight. Jones then was slated to fight Lyoto Machida at UFC 152, but Machida then turned down the fight. That opened the door for middleweight fighter Belfort, who hasn't fought at light heavyweight in five years, to step up for a surprise title shot in his former weight class.

    Also slated for the UFC 152 main card is a title fight between Joseph Benavidez (16-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Demetrious Johnson (15-2-1 MMA, 3-1-1 UFC), who fight in the final of a four-man tournament for the UFC's inaugural flyweight title.

    Rounding out the main card are middleweights Michael Bisping (22-4 MMA, 12-4 UFC) vs. Brian Stann (12-4 MMA, 6-3 UFC), light heavyweights Vladimir Matyushenko (26-6 MMA, 7-4 UFC) vs. Matt Hamill (10-4 MMA, 9-4 UFC), and featherweights Cub Swanson (17-5 MMA, 2-1 UFC) vs. Charles Oliveira (16-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC).

    Four prelims are slated for FX, and three stream on Facebook.
