MANILA -- Filipino Wrecking Machine Mark Muñoz will go up against veteran Dutch fighter Gegard Mousasi at the main event of UFC Fight Night 41.

The 36-year-old Filipino wrestler will try to revive his campaign for the middleweight crown when he goes through a 5-round bout against Mousasi.

The fight will take place at the O2 World Arena in Berlin on May 31.

Muñoz rebounded from his defeat to Chris Weidman in July 2012 by dominating Tim Boetsch a year later.

He, however, lost momentum after getting knocked out by former heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida last October 26, 2013.

Just like Muñoz, Mousasi will be coming off a loss to Machida.

Mousasi (34-4) was outpointed by "The Dragon" in their 5-round clash last February.
