The UFC has had a rash of injuries mess up big fights on a number of their cards over the last several years, but in an interesting turn, an injury to next week’s UFC on Fox 2 card in Chicago may result in a bigger fight for the organization.

UFC President Dana White Tweeted on Tuesday afternoon that Mark Munoz has suffered an injury, taking him out of a co-main event fight with Chael Sonnen on the card next Saturday night. But moving into Munoz’s place is Michael Bisping, who will bump into that slot and out of a fight with Demian Maia.

The winner of the fight between Bisping and Sonnen will meet UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva sometime this summer for the title.

Penick’s Analysis: The most unfortunate change about this switch is that they don’t have much time to promote the new fight, and this is one that really could have led to a lot of trash talk in the lead up. It may still in just a little over a week until the fight, but it does put them behind on that front. Still, Bisping-Sonnen is a fantastically interesting fight, pitting Sonnen’s wrestling game against Bisping’s highly underrated guard, and Bisping’s stand up game against Sonnen’s improving striking skills. This is a huge switch to a big card, but it may have just made the better fight overall.
