While Michael Bisping’s dominant win over Jason Miller this weekend put the Count even deeper “in the mix” at middleweight, he still won’t be next in line for a title shot. The UFC confirmed yesterday afternoon that despite conflicting reports, Chael Sonnen and Mark Munoz will indeed be facing off at UFC on FOX 2 (January 28th, Chicago), with the winner earning a shot at Anderson Silva‘s coveted 185-pound belt.
Sonnen won his first post-suspension fight at UFC 136 in October, choking out Brian Stann in the second round. Last week he hosted the World MMA Awards, and successfully charmed Ronda Rousey into giddiness on the red carpet. Munoz has won four straight fights in the Octagon, most recently scoring a corner stoppage TKO over Chris Leben at UFC 138.
Sonnen and Munoz will join UFC on FOX 2 headliners Rashad Evans and Phil Davis in a press conference this Wednesday at the United Center in Chicago to discuss the event. We’ll see if Munoz brings up the fact that Sonnen wrestled him dirty back in college.
