Mark Munoz, at UFC on Versus 3 on Thursday night, once again will fight one of his wrestling buddies in C.B. Dollaway. It’s all part of the fight game for the two former collegiate wrestling standouts as they work their way up the ranks of the UFC’s middleweight division.

Munoz is 9-2, Dollaway 11-2. The winner of this bout will be thrust into the ranks of title contenders, challenging the throne currently occupied by Anderson Silva.
