LAS VEGAS- The countdown has begun for one of the most anticipated fight cards of the year for the
Ultimate Fighting Championship. Fil-Am Mark Munoz, better known as “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” will slug it out with Tim Boestsch in a 3 round undercard bout of the Silva VS Weidman bout at the UFC162.
Munoz who is notable for his grappling, takedowns, and wrestling skills is ready to take down and combat Boetsch.
“My shape is amazing right now the best shape, maganda ang katawan ko. Amazing work where I’d been and where I am now so the training has been amazing so I’m ready” said Munoz.
“It requires a lot of consistency in the training and eating. A lot of determination and discipline, he is ready just look at him his abs are just popping and his arms are ripped up his in great shape,” his conditioning coach Todd Norman said.
Munoz’ disappointing loss to Weidman last year prompted him to take a break for a year to recover from a foot injury.
“I’m not weak at all so I did it right this time. The last time I didn’t do it right it was a crash diet and that wasn’t good,” he said.
Many predict that the Munoz vs. Boetsch fight is one of the most exciting matches to watch this Saturday as both are extremely talented in Wrestling. It’s also a comeback for both fighters.
