Mark Munoz is getting ready to retire from mixed martial arts competition, but not before he takes on one last fight against Luke Barnatt at UFC Fight Night 66 on May 16th in the Philippines.
Destination wise Manila couldn’t be a more perfect location for the man known as ‘The Filipino Wrecking Machine’ to hang up his gloves and he’s guaranteed to get a hero’s reception their whether he wins or loses.
Nevertheless, the 37 year-old will be eager to ensure he gets his hand raised one last time and put an end to a disappointing run of form that’s seen the former middleweight top 10 regular win just one of his last five fights.
Standing in his way of accomplishing that is England’s Barnatt who’s looking to stop a two-fight losing streak of his own after having previously held an unblemished 8-0 career record, including three wins inside the Octagon.
Munoz Vs Barnatt should land on the main card and joins a line-up that’s set to be headlined by an intriguing fight between Frankie Edgar and Urijah Faber who’ll be moving back up to featherweight to take on the former lightweight champion, while Gegard Mousasi Vs Costas Philippou serves as a solid co-main event.
