Mark Munoz Tweets Before And After Pictures Of His ‘Battle With Obesity’
Mark Munoz has been inactive since his brutal KO loss to Chris Weidman, at UFC on Fuel in July 2012. The loss snapped Munoz’s four fight win streak, and sent him in to a spiral of injury and depression. The Filipino Wrecking Machine ballooned to 261lbs. after his surgery for a broken foot.
More than 70lbs. above his fighting weight, and in pretty bad shape, Munoz needed to do a u-turn. Check out the pics from Munoz’s Twitter account:

I’ve always been a Munoz fan, and I’m glad to see that he has managed to turn this in to a positive situation. He looks in great shape, my only hope is that the division hasn’t moved too far in his absence. He will face a tough battle in his octagon return at UFC 162, facing Tim Boetsch at Middleweight.
The Barbarian is coming off a loss to Costa Phillipou which snapped his four fight win streak. He lost by TKO in the third round of the UFC 155 scrap, and will be looking to bounce back in a big way. I do think that Boetsch is a tough challenge for Munoz, he has a great chin and heavy hands.I remember his awesome comeback knockout of Yushin Okami and the crazy reaction from Joe Rogan was a bonus.
Judging by the photos of Munoz, he looks to be in terrific shape, and I hope he comes fully prepared to face Boetsch. It will be a must win situation for both guys, which usually brings out the best in fighters.
