Chael Sonnen wants a rematch with Anderson Silva by any means. First, though, he has to make it past Mark Muñoz. The matchup was confirmed by the Ultimate Fighting Championship and is set to take place at the January 28 UFC on Fox 2 show in Chicago, USA. The winner is tipped to challenge the “Spider” for his middleweight crown.

Sonnen is coming off a submission win over Brian Stann at UFC 136, while Muñoz is on a four-fight winning streak.

Now in the evening’s main event, Rashad Evans and Phil Davis will do battle for a shot at the light heavyweight title, facing the winner of the December 10 showdown between Lyoto Machida and current champ Jon Jones.

Check out the card as it stands:
