Mark Munoz Fixed On Future Fight With Michael Bisping

Mark Munoz had a 2012 to forget, as the UFC middleweight was defeated by Chris Weidman.

Now, as he continues to rehab from elbow and knee issues, Munoz is focusing on one fight in specific upon his return.

“There are a lot of guys I want to face, but now I can only think of one person: Michael Bisping,” said Munoz, during a recent interview with Tatame. “I want this fight for some time now. He is one of the top fighters in the category and I think a win puts me back in the title race.”

Bisping, however, is currently set to face Vitor Belfort in January. No timetable for a return to action has been assigned to Munoz, who is 12-3 in his MMA career.
