As we reported last week, on March 7, in his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) debut, the “Filipino Wrecking Machine” Mark Muñoz, encountered his first loss as he faced veteran Matt Hamill in Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, before 17,033 mixed martial arts (MMA) enthusiasts.
Although upset with the loss, Muñoz acknowledges Hamill’s fight and congratulated him on the win.
If Muñoz’s resiliency and determination shown as a college wrestler can foretell the future, it is guaranteed that his MMA skills will sharpen as his career continues in the UFC. In an interview a week after his fight Muñoz said, “I’m definitely going to be a better fighter. I am
going to be 110 percent better.”
With 5 wins and 1 loss, Muñoz is committed to learning from this
experience, to returning to the Octagon with renewed vigor, and to earning his sixth win.
I want to know how his wife deals with his fights. That definitely has to be upsetting to watch. More to come on Mark Munoz.
