Mark Munoz: “I would have loved to fight Bisping just because he’s a bigger name”

UFC middleweight powerhouse, Mark Munoz says he’s surprised that he was overlooked in favor of Tim Boetsch to take on Michael Bisping at UFC 148 in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 7th, adding the Brit has his hands full either way.

Speaking via ESPN.com, Munoz said:

“It was surprising to me. I thought we were on a collision course. I know there are a lot of people in the general public that wanted us to fight. I would have loved to fight Bisping just because he’s a bigger name and I match up well with him. But hey, he’s fighting Boetsch and he’s got his hands full. That’s a real intriguing fight. We’ll see what happens.”
