...chael sonnen is 1 and 3 in his last 4.
Why isn't anyone calling for his retirement? Actually, if people are going to just look at arbitrary points in a career, I'm pretty sure Munoz is 5 and 3 in his last 8, sonnen is 4 and 4.
Taking a step back does not mean they won't make a run for a title. Look what its gotten him, so far out of the title picture, he will not be considered a title challenger for years. I would without a doubt tell any fighter I managed after 2 loses to take a step back in competition and right himself.

Even if you told him he should take a step back doesn't mean he is going to listen. I have never thought very much of Munoz. I never thought he would get a title shot, even when MW was the most shallow division. He has always believed in himself though. As a manager it would be your responsibility to present to him any offers and if he accepts that is his choice.
Munzo needs to get healthy and a good fight to get his confidence back.
