Mark Munoz will take on Tim Boetsch at UFC 162 in Las Vegas on July 6, while Roger Gracie and Tim Kennedy will make their UFC debuts when they face one another on the same fight card.

With Anderson Silva's battle against Chris Weidman being announced on Wednesday in what promises to be a thrilling middleweight match, the tussle between top ten middleweights Munoz and Boetsch will be just as exciting.

Munoz was last in action in July 2012 when he was defeated by a dominant Weidman - who twice took his opponent down and was worthy of the victory. Munoz had been on a run of four consecutive triumphs before the loss.

Munoz's latest opponent Boetsch's best win to date was the one over Yushin Okami in the UFC 144 bout, and had won four matches in a row before losing to Constantinos Philippou at UFC 155.
