UFC President, Dana White just made the the announcement that Mark Munoz is injured and that Michael Bisping will now face Chael Sonnen in what will be a number one contender fight for a shot at Anderson Silva’s middleweight crown. The severity of Munoz’s injury or possible timetable for a return has yet to be revealed.
White, posting via his Twitter, said:
“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.”
