Things haven’t gone so well for Mark Munoz in his two previous UFC headlining appearances, but he’ll have a chance to redeem himself next month in Germany.

Munoz (13-4 MMA, 8-4 UFC) fights Gegard Mousasi (34-4-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) in the main event of UFC Fight Night 41, which takes place May 31 at O2 World Berlin. The card will stream on UFC Fight Pass in the United States.

This past October, Munoz was knocked out by Lyoto Machida in the main event of UFC Fight Night 30 in England. And in July 2012, he was stopped by current UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman in UFC on FUEL TV 4's main event.

Munoz knows he has a tough task against Mousasi, who is coming off a loss of his own to Machida.

“His striking is amazing. His standup is great,” Munoz told MMAjunkie. “He’s planted, and always ready to fire. He’s got power shots from both hands. His kicks are unbelievable. For an MMA guy, he has amazing striking, and on the ground he’s amazing, too. That’s everything he has, and he goes forward and doesn’t stop coming forward.”

Check out the video above to hear Munoz talk about training with Chael Sonnen, what he’s working on for his fight with Mousasi, the current state of the middleweight division and more.
