Mark Munoz has suffered an undisclosed injury, removing him from his top contender fight with Chael Sonnen at UFC on Fox 2 on Jan. 28. With only a weeks notice, Michael Bisping will be stepping in to save the event. Advantages for Bisping, as White has tweeted that the winner can expect to fight UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
“Munoz is injured and out of the FOX fight,” White posted via Twitter. “Now it’s Chael Sonnen vs. Mike Bisping Jan. 28, and the winner will fight Anderson for the title.”
Prior to the development Bisping was scheduled to face Demian Maia on the card, Maia is expected to receive a late replacement.
*Update: Maia has been matched up against undefeated Chris Weidman for the UFC on Fox 2 card.
