UFC Mark Munoz is out against Chael Sonnen

The UFC is reporting that middleweight Mark Munoz has sustained an injury and is out of the UFC of Fox 2 fight card. His replacement for the Jan. 28 fight against American Chael Sonnen (27-1-1) will be British fighter Michael Bisping (23-3-0), with the winner getting a chance to fight Anderson Silva for the UFC middleweight title.

Bisping was already scheduled for fight on the card that night against Demian Maia. Bisping's biggest concern now will be his fighting strategy. He was preparing to fight a jiu-jitsu fighter and now will be taking on a world-class wrestler in Sonnen.

"UFC on FOX 2: Rashad Evans versus Phil Davis" takes place at the United Center in Chicago.

Awesome. A fight between two world-class a-holes. I want Sonnen to win so Silva can shut him up permanently, and so we can stop pretending Bisping is an elite fighter.
