Chael Sonnen and Mark Munoz Both Want Title Shot, Who Wins Out?

Let the middleweight contender argument begin.

After taking care of business at UFC 138 with a win over Chris Leben, Mark Munoz shared his feelings about his place in the middleweight rankings. “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” feels he’s worthy of a shot at the kingpin… Anderson Silva.

“I paid my dues in this weight class and I think I deserve a title shot,” Munoz said. “I consider (Anderson Silva) a friend, but right now I would love to get a title shot.”

Some may look at this stance as bold, but Munoz has indeed fought for it. The fighter out of Reign Training Center has topped seven of eight middleweight opponents and finished four of those fights before going to the judges.

Another middleweight that gets a lot of contender talk – even when it doesn’t come directly from him – is the always-vocal Chael Sonnen. His manager, Mike Roberts, feels his client deserves another shot at Silva, but representing Munoz as well, he wouldn’t sell his other charge’s efforts short either.

“Mark and Chael both deserve a title shot,” Roberts told MMAWeekly.com via text message.

Obviously, UFC president Dana White and matchmaker Joe Silva will have the final say in who Silva defends his belt against next. It’s only appropriate that both Sonnen and Munoz are speculated to be the front-runners for No. 1 contender status, but only time will tell who gets the next crack.

Maybe the method in which Munoz and Sonnen call out the champion will be taken into consideration. Munoz had the very respectful approach and admitted he has all the respect and honor for the champ. Sonnen, however, had one of the most memorable call outs in recent history when he said, “Anderson Silva, you absolutely suck!”

Clearly, Sonnen’s and Munoz’s methods are polar opposites. Now fans wait to see which message comes across louder to White and Silva.
