Chael Sonnen vs. Mark Munoz Rumored to Headline UFC on FOX 2 on Jan. 28th

The ever outspoken middleweight contender, Chael Sonnen will not wait for the champion, after it was rumored that he will headline the next UFC on FOX 2 event against Mark Munoz in a Number one contender bout to determine the next challenger to face UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva.

The Brazilian is currently rehabilitating from a shoulder injury he suffered during his bout against Yushin Okami at UFC 134, and Sonnen has previously stated he would rather fight in the mean time instead of waiting for the champion to make a full recovery.

The winner of Sonnen vs. Munoz is expected to challenge Silva when he is slated to make his return to the Octagon in June 2012. UFC on FOX is scheduled for January 28, 2012, from the United Center in Chicago.
