Mark Munoz Denies Reports Of Retirement, End Of Fighting Career

Mark Munoz wants everyone to know that he will not be announcing his retirement anytime soon.

Instead, Munoz hopes to resume training in the coming weeks, and hopefully sign up for a fight as soon as possible.

Reports of Munoz suffering a career-ending foot injury were denied by the fighter, who lost to Chris Weidman earlier this year in his return bout from elbow surgery.

“That’s inaccurate, it’s inaccurate,” said Munoz, during an interview with Radio. “I was just talking to somebody inside my gym and he came in and was just hanging out, and unfortunately, he posted something on the Internet. And it just caught on like wildfire.”

Munoz (12-3) made sure to end those rumors of retirement, as well, saying, “I’m not retiring. I’m here to stay. I get down, but I don’t stay down.”

The former standout college wrestler believes he’ll be cleared to resume training from a stress fracture suffered in his foot in “two, actually, three-to-four weeks, or so,” and that he is hoping to sign a fight contract in the near future.
