UFC Fight Night 30 has a new look to its headlining bout, as Michael Bisping (24-5 MMA, 14-5 UFC) has been forced to withdraw from a planned matchup with Mark Munoz (13-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC).

An eye injury forced Bisping's removal from the card, and Lyoto Machida (19-4 MMA, 11-4 UFC) has stepped in to take his place in the main event of UFC Fight Night 30, which takes place on Oct. 26 at Phones 4u Arena (previously known as Manchester Arena) in Manchester, England. The evening's main card airs in the U.S. on FOX Sports 2 following prelims on Facebook.

ESPN first reported the switch, and MMAjunkie.com subsequently confirmed it with company officials.

Damn, that picture was just posted with them training together too. Interesting fight, Munoz will want this fight on the ground as soon as possible. It'll be interesting to see if he's able to put Machida there.

I was actually looking forward to original match up more. This is still a good match up though. Would rather see machida against belfort or even mousasi.

Honestly I have to say that I've kind of got tired of machidas style, especially in his last few fights. Hopefully this is a rebirth for him at mw and we get some classic machida finishes.

Ya know what?
Machida is not a bad guy; he’s a victim of the Brazilian education system. There are better ways to get electrolytes than drinking piss...especially by cutting to 85.

That being said, Mark Munoz >> the man, the legend, my training partner via 2nd round Donkey-Kong destruction!

Would have rather seen Jacare step in here considering he can't step in against Kennedy since chances are a rematch between the 2 wouldn't be popular with fans. Wonder who fights Kennedy now on a already weak card, PLEASE don't be Carmont. Please
