    Default Mark Munoz: Obese to beast

    Mark Munoz: Obese to beast - Mixed Martial Arts News

    A title-run ending loss to Chris Weidman and multiple injuries derailed Mark Munoz psychologically; by January the middleweight had ballooned to over 260 lbs.

    Munoz fights Tim Boetsch at UFC 162 next Saturday live on PPV, and he is a new man.

    Munoz explains, via Twitter.

    Mark Muñoz ‏@mark_munoz

    My sincerest gratitude to @Todd_Norman @sunfare & many thx to @rileyrross Sam & Monica Calavitta, & Stu White!

    Battled through injury, self-doubt, and depression. I turned to food for comfort and what I found was more heartache. A never ending cycle of "eating because I was sad and sad because I was eating."

    No matter what adversity, you have in your life, you can be transcendent over it with God by your side and you can accomplish all things. Thank you all who believed in, encouraged, motivated and prayed for me! I thank you for you compassion and care! Now I am going in confident to #UFC162 with all I had to work through!

    There r a lot asking, "how long it took for me 2go from 261 to 199." Took 5 months of #desire #direction #discipline #diligence #dedication

    Pics on the left look like he changed his last name to Hunt.

    Munoz looks damn good. Really excited for he and Boetsch, leaning towards Munoz, but enjoy both guys.

    Glad to see Munoz so motivated. If Boetsch starts slow it could be a short night.

    this...

    and he let himself go when he was depressed. I highly doubt he did anything different than his regular fight-camps.

    Amazing. Ya know, the guy on the left is a pretty normal sight in the outside world.... and he definitely wouldn't be considered obese
