Chael Sonnen vs Mark Munoz at UFC on FOX 2 on Jan. 28 still not signed

MMAMania is reporting that Sonnen vs. Munoz is a done deal:

Anderson Silva's next fight may be against Chael Sonnen but Chael Sonnen's next fight won't be against Anderson Silva.

That's because the number one contender to the middleweight championship will put that distinction on the line when he battles Mark Munoz at UFC on FOX 2 on Jan. 28 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.

MMAmania.com was able to confirm the pending bout with sources close to the contest.

UFC President Dana White said he would be "stupid" not to make the Silva fight but a pesky shoulder injury is reportedly going to keep "The Spider" on the shelf until June, when the world's largest fight promotion heads back to Brazil.

If Sonnen can get by Munoz and make a good impression on network TV, he'll be joining his arch nemesis in his home country.

However, MMAMania's sister site, BloodyElbow, is reporting that the bout is not finalized:

While some sites are reporting it as a done deal according to their sources, BE spoke to Mr. Sonnen himself and he says the bout has not been confirmed or signed. A matchup with Munoz remains a possibility, but nothing has been set in stone as of late last night.

It's pretty safe to say we're not going to see Silva/Sonnen 2, since Munoz does everything better than Chael does besides talk shit. He's actually got a much better chance to beating Anderson anyway IMO. That being said I'd rather see Sonnen fight Silva just to see the look of crushing defeat on his face when he loses again :)

You're right... sonnen is only the #2 MW in the world, and #1 Contender for the MW beltand Ellenberger is just a beast at WW, no reason he deserves to be on a main card to try to show a new mass of people how good the kid is.
