Mark Munoz heads into the UFC on Fuel TV 4 main event with Chris Weidman, it will have been eight months since he last set foot in the Octagon.
He had been scheduled to face Chael Sonnen at UFC on Fox 2 in January, the winner getting a crack at Anderson Silva. But after suffering an elbow injury, Munoz had to drop out, leaving Sonnen to face Michael Bisping and eventually win the shot at Silva.
Munoz has worked hard to make his way back to the Octagon and will now be fighting Weidman to try and move back to the head of the “shot at Anderson Silva” line.
Our friends over at Xyience have produced a behind the scenes look at Munoz as he’s been preparing for this fight, following both his training and his life outside the gym in this special series, “Mark Munoz: The Comeback.”
