Mark Munoz could possibly be sidelined for a year with foot injury | UFC News

By: Chris Taylor

Top 10 middleweight Mark Munoz is coming off arguably the most lopsided beating of 2012, when he suffered a KO loss to top contender Chris Weidman at UFC on FUEL TV this past July. Since then, news hasn’t gotten any better for the “Filipino Wrecking Machine”, as he recently revealed that he may be out of action for some time.

Munoz apparently suffured a foot injury while training for the Weidman fight and depending on the severity of the injury, he could potentially miss up to a full calander year. Here is what Mark had to say:

“I hurt my foot training for the Weidman fight; I was training with Jason (Miller) inside the cage and my foot got caught. I am not sure if it is broken. I will be getting an official MRI tomorrow and I will know. I just hope they do not have to break it in order for it to heal properly as it has somewhat started to heal.”

Tough news for one of the nicest guys in MMA, who is already coming off what has to be the worst loss of his career. He is likely to be sidelined at the very least for the remainder of 2012. Hopefully the injury is not to serious and Mark is able to return to the octagon in the near future.

Potential matches against the likes of Alan Belcher, Tim Boetsch, Brian Stann or Hector Lombard could await the “Filipino Wrecking Machine” upon his return.
