BREAKING: Mark Munoz Injured, Bisping vs. Sonnen Now For #1 Contender Spot

(Pillow-fists > Toilet-brush-hair.) 

Here you have it, folks, incontrovertible proof that The Great UFC Title Curse of 2011 has satiated its thirst for champions and is now moving on to any viable contender within sight. Dana White (via his Twitter) broke the news just a few minutes ago that Mark Munoz has suffered an unknown injury which has forced him to withdraw from his number one contender bout with Chael Sonnen, which was set to go down at the second UFC on FOX event in just 11 days. Taking his place will be none other than TUF 14 coach Michael Bisping.

Bisping, who most recently dominated opposing TUF 14 coach Jason “Mayhem” Miller back at the TUF 14 Finale in December, was originally scheduled to face Demian Maia at the same event, but has now catapulted himself into a marquee match-up against Sonnen for a crack at middleweight champ Anderson Silva. Maia has been left without an opponent as a result. Since dropping a unanimous decision to Wanderlei Silva at UFC 110, Bisping has collected four straight victories, including the aforementioned win over Jason Miller, a second round TKO of Jorge Rivera, and a pair of unanimous decisions over Dan Miller and Yoshihiro Akiyama.

Who you guys got for this one? Hint: Sonnen.

Maybe you can view as standing in an Americans shoes. You got some better men, less popular than Bisping, Hardy, and Daley that you didn't name.
Also, since we are talking about he Crown, that includes the commonwealth too. So you can sideline into Aussie, Canadian, and Kiwi fighter's too.
I used to root for Elvis Sinosic, but he started the game too late in life and dropped off too fast. He was the guy that Mayhem copied with the flammie red hair - but most forget that.

Let's just say that Chael Sonnen will be than Jason "Exhaustion" Miller was
silvaupkick- January 18, 2012 at 8:25 am
the last thing Bisping will see is Chael's roid backne as he peers down from a deep double leg. testosterone replacement therapy is a hell of a drug. War Sonnen.

Is this real?...
It's like Christmas twice inside of a month. I will not leave my home for 11 days for the fear of an accident or unusual act of God rendering me blind or vegative, leaving unable to partake in the beautiful shit storm Chael P is about to reap on Bisping. Oh how Happy I am.

Pulling for Sonnen. If Bisbing wins it will be one of the biggest upsets in UFC history. Not just for the fact that Sonnen is a beast, but it will nix Silva Vs Sonnen 2.

^^^^GSP v Matt Serra??

There is no way Bisping wins this fight. He has pillow hands and know wrestling. Chael will finish him by the second round.

Can't wait to see Bisping get slammed on his neck, smashing his spinal cord and ending his career
Dagnut- January 18, 2012 at 4:27 am
Am I the only one who rates Bispings take down defence? He has fought strong wrestlers before..Evans and Hamill and he has improved a lot since then..I think he is stronger then people give him credit for..I don't think Sonnen will have this all his own way..I see him winning but not the domination people are expecting
gruge- January 18, 2012 at 2:06 am
Ohhh Great. As a Brit, I now have to spend the next 10 days afraid to look at any MMA relatated website for fear of seeing Bisping represent my country. I may be bias, but I dont actualy hate Bisping. I am however, a huge fan of Chael, but its very hard to stay supportive of a fighter who I have no doubt will berrate the country I love over the next 10 days. Lets face it, we (Britain and England in particular), do not have our share of representatives in the UFC. We have Mike, a good fighter but he behaves horribly, we had/have Paul Dayley, a man with such a poor sence of sportsmanship that he quite rightfull got himself kicked out of the UFC, and we have Dan Hardy. These are our 3 best know, and therefor are three representatives. MMA is growing increibly rappidly here in the UK. Many young guys, myself included, are what one might call "up and comers", but untill that time we have to sit back and watch the whole world get the wrong idea about what our country is all about.

Yes! really did not want to see Munoz fight for the title.
Need to get people who will actually challenge Silva in his last couple of fights ;)
Puntoklup- January 18, 2012 at 12:54 am
Oh man I cant wait.. I love watching Chael fight but now I CANT FUCKING WAIT!@!!!! haha poor Bisping even if he woulda got a 1 spot for the belt he will never win this fight.. Poor goddamn bloke
errandboy- January 18, 2012 at 12:49 am
Silva will make a miracle recovery and be ready to fight within 2 months if Bisping manages to pull off the upset by sticking and moving for the whole fight.
Nippletwist- January 18, 2012 at 12:07 am
why not just have sonnen get his shit pushed in by belfort. that would shut him up and we don't have to watch him try to sit on anderson for 25 minutes again.
XENOPHON- January 17, 2012 at 11:09 pm
Yeah, and to make it worse Bisping could get lucky twice and drop Silva.
maazhii- January 17, 2012 at 10:16 pm
Sonnen would smash Munoz just as easy as Bisping
RwilsonR- January 17, 2012 at 9:32 pm
I don't check the site all day, then see this news. Could not be happier!
MMA-TUBE.COM- January 17, 2012 at 8:44 pm
I want to see Chael vs Paul Harris!
pinkyslayer- January 17, 2012 at 8:35 pm
is anybody else upset because munoz/sonnen was gonna be a great fight?
fatbellyfrank- January 17, 2012 at 8:30 pm
Well now, this makes things interesting, Sonnen should take Bisping, however there's no knockout power in Sonnen, although he does possess IMO one of the best takedowns in MMA, Bisping aint knockin anyone out either,should be a good scrap, with Sonnen taking it fairly easy, the best part of the whole thing is gonna be Sonnen at his condescending worst, he is gonna turn Bisping into a frothing,gibbering mess within approx 5 days with his shit talk, then beat Bisping up in the cage to really humiliate him
Irishwolfhound491- January 17, 2012 at 8:02 pm
Does anybody else hope Bisping pulls the upset so he has to face Silva?
Todd M- January 17, 2012 at 7:41 pm
^ Agreed, win win for every body body.
enrikk- January 17, 2012 at 7:12 pm
Oh, I couldn't be happier! I really couldn't care less if Munoz faced Silva, but this is TOTAL win-win for fans around the world! If Sonnen wins, we get the matchup we've been waiting for. If Bisping pulls off the upset, we get to see him lit up like Hiroshima, and that would be so so so sweet....omg so happy...
