Munoz eager for shot at title
Mark Munoz is an accomplished former NCAA wrestling champion who is currently on a 3 straight victory streak and is ready for a fourth one as he will be facing another American in Chris Leben at UFC 138 on November 5. Munoz’s immediate plans are focused on getting a shot for the title and about this, he mentioned that “I definitely feel a victory over Leben gets me a step closer to where I want to be.

At the same time, I want to be the world champion and it’s only a matter of time before I get there.”
