Why don't people like Mark Munõz?

Ares11Ares11 Posts: 1,486Free
I never really paid attention to him before now for some reason partly because I'm a fairly new MMA fan, but he's such a nice dude, pretty great fighter and I think the struggles he's been through makes him more relatable to me. Definitely becoming one of my favorites. If he goes out there and has a great fight on Saturday he'll have a huge fan in me.
Favorite fighters:

HW: Lesnar, Schaub, dos Santos
LHW: Gustafsson, OSP
MW: Weidman, Jacare, Mousasi
WW: Hendricks, MacDonald, Ellenberger, Thatch
LW: Cowboy, Khabib
FW: McGregor, Poirier

    He's got a tall order in Lyoto but if by some how he pulls It off I want to see him fight for the title

    He has the best GNP at MW...and if he's 100% I think he give Weidman a way tougher fight (assuming Weidman still has the title)
    Sig record

    What do you get when you take A.Silva's clinch game + Mark Hunt's Iron Chin + Mushy Lady Parts?

    A: Cat Zingano....the UFC's true #1 women's contender

    Agreed... I know people say he makes excuses but I watched all I his UFC fights in the past two days and he just didn't seem himself in that Weidman fight. And I agree with you saying he has the best GNP at middleweight.

  • Munoz is a boss. Always liked him. Mostly because he's from the 707. But he's one of the nicest guys in the sport, has vicious GnP and is constantly improving. He has a nice gym going for himself too. I think he will start to work his way back up the ladder. He looked really solid in his last fight. Always glad to see Munoz win

    I've got to wrestle him before,he's a VERY NICE GUY! That being said after wrestling him I don't think he is top 5 by any means.
  • He seems like a genuinely nice guy and I enjoy watching him fight. I could understand if people don't love his style, but you can't hate on the guy.

    The big problem is the UFC constantly pushing him as a top 5 MW, despite being above average at best

    is that why the Spitts ducked him hard? Munoz is top 5.

    1. Weidman
    2. Anderson
    3. Vitor
    4. Souza
    5. Munoz

    I like him both as a fighter and a person from what i've seen/heard but he's just not very consistent fighter and i don't think he's as mentally strong as he could be.

    I like Munoz. Nothing to hate about the guy in my opinion.

    I think a lot of mma fans like Munoz. He is a down to earth kind of guy.
    What??
  • Yesterdays_HeroYesterdays_Hero Posts: 23,650Free
    Munoz is a great fighter and seems like a cool dude. I always thought it was weird that he got tons of hate for nothing.
  • GalvanikGalvanik Posts: 1,004Free
    Yeah I don't know what the hate is for, seems like a really cool dude and he's usually pretty fun to watch. Too bad he has to get decisioned by Machida though.
    Bet Record: 2-3

    I'm picking Munoz in that fight via actually fighting, instead of standing around the entire fight.

    I also picked Muñoz but it's a tough fight for him. If Machida implements a game plan similar to the Phil Davis fight, Muñoz has a good shot of winning. If Machida is aggressive, it'll be tough for Mark to win.

    No chance in hell that Machida comes out aggressive. It will be the same Machida that fought Hendo and Davis.

    The question will be, can Munoz avoid the counters that Machida will throw like Davis did.

    Hendo and Davis couldn't beat him, neither will Munoz. Their styles play right into his hands, they all fall to The Dragon.

    I dont have a problem with Munoz he seems like a nice guy but I'm picking Machida to win and I think Bisping would have beat him to.

    Why did you flag my post? He was a guest coach at the wrestling camp I went to.
    Don't get me wrong he beat me ofcourse BUT I thought it would have been alot worse than it was.
