UFC Fight Night: Munoz vs. Mousasi
|UFC Fight Night: Muñoz vs. Mousasi|
|Promotion||Ultimate Fighting Championship|
|Date||May 31, 2014|
The event was the first of two that took place on May 31, 2014, with The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 Finale: Miocic vs. Maldonado being the other making it only the second time in UFC history that they have hosted two events in one day.
The octagon's canvas was exceptionally lacking sponsor logos, due to the Berlin event's canvas having been unintentionally shipped to São Paulo's event.
In a rare move following the event, no single fight was honored as Fight of the Night. Instead, four separate fighters were given Performance of the Night bonus awards.
