Due to an injury during atraining session, Mark Munoz (12-2-0) was forced to withdraw from his upcoming UFC on FOX 2 bout against Chael Sonnen (26-11-1). Michael Bisping (22-3-0) is now scheduled to fight Sonnen and the winner will then officially face Anderson “The Spider” Silva for the middleweight title. UFC President Dana White confirmed the news via Twitter:
“Munoz is injured and out of the FOX fight! Now it’s Chael Sonnen vs Mike Bisping jan 28th and the winner will fight Anderson for the title.”
Both fighters have already begun to do what they love doing best, and that’s some good old trash talking…
“I am going to knock the teeth out of this snot nosed Brit who calls himself royalty, who calls himself a Count. I am MMA royalty and America will tune into the Chael Sonnen show next Saturday on FOX.”
“Chael Sonnen’s best weapon is his mouth, and that’s something that’s going to be absolutely useless in this fight…I see a very bright future for Chael Sonnen as a used car salesman very soon… Unlucky for Chael Sonnen. I’m now fighting him next week. Tune in, jan 28th, fox tv. Fight of the year mofo’s. He’s been kicked out of politics, kicked out of real estate, and I am going to kick him out of the middleweight division.”
Demian Maia (15-3) was scheduled to face Bisping in the same card, but Maia was immediately given a new opponent as well. The BJJ black belt will be fighting undefeated fighter Chris “All American” Weidman (7-0).
