Munoz eyes February return, Weidman rematch


ďIím planing to come back as soon as possible. I do have an injury here, but Iím not going to let it stop me. This is perspective for me. Iíve had kind of a tough year this year with having an elbow injury and coming back from surgery and then rushing back into a fight which probably I could have taken a little bit more time off, and then, sustaining this injury. Suffice to say, Iíve learned a lot. It wasnít quite me in that last fight. Iím going to redeem myself with a fight coming up, whoever I fight,Ē Munoz promised. ďI fought a lot of times in two years, I think that would have been my eighth fights in two years. And Iím very active so, Iím just kind of going to take it easy. This is my bodyís way of telling me. It was like camp, after camp, after camp. I was fighting every three, four months. Iím going to take some time off and get back into it and just be a raging bull when I get back in the cage again. Iím planning probably around February or so, weíll see how my body heals up.Ē

Following the fight with Weidman, the doctor told Munoz after he was X-rayed that his right foot was almost completely broken.ĒI didnít know my foot was fractured at all. I didnít know there was a stress fracture.Ē The doctor was in disbelief that Munoz fought on it in the first place. ĒMy bone was actually fractured. They actually put me in a boot.Ē

When The Filipino Wrecking Machine does return, he said heís looking to take a fight that gets his name back on the map. ďIíd like to have a rematch with Weidman, Iíd like to fight Bisping. Thereís a lot of guys out there. The fact of the matter is, I want a fight thatíd get me back on track to becoming a world champ. I definitely want to redeem myself on my last performance and show people that Iím a man that learns from his mistakes. And for me, champions arenít measured by how many wins they have, but how they pick themselves after a loss. Thatís the true meaning of a champion and thatís what I want to show.Ē
