Chael Sonnen says he's not fighting Mark Munoz, hints at Bisping-Miller winnerPosted on December 1, 2011, 07:24 AM by Anton Gurevich
Editor's Note: I guess there's a bit of truth in every joke. This interview with Chael Sonnen was made almost two months ago, when the fight with Mark Munoz was just a rumor. Sonnen had a clear vision he's going to fight the winner of Bisping VS. Miller.
The fight between Sonnen and Munoz was confirmed by multiple sources as a co-headliner of the upcoming UFC on FOX 2 fight card, currently scheduled to take place at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois, on January 28th. But despite the reports, Sonnen declared he has no fight with Mark Munoz at UFC on FOX 2.
According to Sonnen, who avoided to reveal too much information, his next fight inside the Octagon will be against the winner of this weekend's TUF 14 Finale scrap between Jason "Mayhem" Miller and Michael "The Count" Bisping. In case of Brit's victory, MMA fans around the world could be up for an endless trash talk spree, since both Bisping and Sonnen are well-known for their verbal skills. Earlier this year, Sonnen expressed his desire to fight Bisping, who was at that time fresh off the infamous UFC 127 "Spit-gate" victory over Jorge Rivera (via MMAWeekly.com):

Re: Spitsbing & his tainted victory
If you get a chance to talk with him, please mention to your idiot-in-residence Michael Spitsbing it’ll be a little tougher to knee ME in the head when I’m charging at him like a runaway train and mincing him through the fence like a boiled potato, should we ever have the pleasure of each other’s company for a few (VERY few) moments in the Octagon.
Oh; and I’d suggest to him being a little careful about spitting on any of MY cornermen, since any one of them can beat him up as badly as I can. Thanks ever so much.
Hope all is well.
"I have no fight with Mark Munoz. My next fight will be based on... I don't know how much I can say, but I will be watching the TV on Saturday night. Put it that way."
