We should have known as soon as Chael Sonnen said that he was not fighting Mark Munoz.
The UFC announced today that Sonnen will face Munoz in the co-main event of UFC on FOX 2, in a bout that will decide which fighter will get the next crack at middleweight champion Anderson Silva.
In the night’s main event, former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans battles the unbeaten Phil Davis to determine the next challenger to the 205-pound title.
