Mark Munoz injured for UFC on FOX 2

Mark Munoz has been forced out of the co-main event against Chael Sonnen with an injury at “UFC on FOX 2” January 28th.  Taking Munoz’s spot against Sonnen will be British banger Michael Bisping.

UFC president Dana White tweeted the news earlier today saying,

“Munoz is injured & out of FOX fight! Now it’s Chael Sonnen vs Mike Bisping 1/28 & winner will fight Anderson for the title.”

The implication of a title shot is huge for Bisping, but it also yields a potentially easier matchup for Chael, who should be able to cruise to a decision over Bisping by controlling him on the ground.

Bisping was previously slated to fight Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace Demian Maia on the card, but Maia will now face the undefeated and super talented Chris Weidman.

This sets up an interesting bout, as Weidman is an extraordinary wrestler but may not want to take the grappling wizard Maia down.

The timing was inconvenient for this to go down, and it’s a terrible setback for Munoz, but the UFC pulled through and pieced together the card in crunch-time as they always do.
