Sonnen vs Munoz is the most logical fight if Silva is out. Sonnen vs Wanderlei doesn't make much sense at this point because Wanderlei isn't close to a title shot. Sonnen vs Bisping makes more sense than Silva/Sonnen but the fight that should and most likely will happen is Sonnen vs Munoz

I pretty much agree,though I want to see Wandy apply his "I will kill him quickly/Swiftly" quote. If he can that is.
Stylisticly it would be I think possibly bad for Silva but considering the two have a history already established I personally wouldn't mind seeing not only the fight but the hype they would build behind it.

I bet we see Chael take on Dans leftovers so they can avoid showing his mediocrity. Bisping will probably beat Miller and we have heavy hype and exposure, not to mention he has no chance against Silva.

I am hoping for the next contender to beat a real fighter to qualify for a title shot.

I'm thinking Munoz vs. Sonnen



me too. neither deserve a shot based on their last opponent, but one would easily be deserving w/ a win over the other



My thoughts also

Sonnen could elect to sit out and keep his title shot. In fact I think that's what will ultimately happen.

Its a gamble because someone could pass him up for it but he keeps himself at the forefront of MMA with his mouth more than his fighting anyways. I don't see Bisping passing him for a shot even with a win over Miller. Munoz possibly but he'd need to take another fight and how would he manage to squeeze that in before Anderson's return in a couple of months.

Also Anderson has already challenged Sonnen via twitter but wants the fight in Brazil. Chael accepted his challenge last night.
