There we have it, Dana White came on Twitter a few hours ago to reveal an injury to Mark Munoz, Chael Sonnen will instead fight Micheal Bisping.  Before letting that sink in, let us just spare a thought for Damien Maia who is essentially demoted to a fight with Chris Weidman.

So, Bisping vs Sonnen.  This is great news for British MMA fans since it represents a Brits best chance of a shot at a belt since Dan Hardy lost to GSP.  A run down and predicitons for the event will appear here in the week leading up to the 28th but for now I will just say that the Sonnen's powerful wrestling and top control will be a stern test for "The Count".

The fight is one of the most hypable fights imaginable.  Micheal Bisping is much hated for allegedly spitting in the direction of Jorge Rivera while Chael Sonnen is resembling a pro wrestler more and more every day.
