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.

It’s never fun to punch your friend in the face, but as Munoz says, they are professionals and will put on an exciting fight for the fans, looking to move up the ladder… and then go they’ll go hang out together.
