April 27, 2015 6:06 pm by bjpenndotcom


UFC middleweight is preparing for his upcoming retirement. He has one last fight with Luke Barnatt, taking place in the Philippines, then the UFC vet is stepping away from the sport.

On the recent episode of The MMA Hour, Munoz revealed that he has already sold his longtime gym, Reign Training Center.

“I’ve actually sold Reign Training Center, and I’m looking to get into coaching for wrestling again. For me, my son is going into high school, and my daughter has got two more years of college, and I want to be a dad that leaves a legacy with his children. I want to be able to spend time with them. These past six years have gone by so fast, and I haven’t really gotten to spend time with them. I’ve been spending 12, 13 hours days at the gym, teaching, coaching. And then I’ve been doing a lot of my community work with my anti-bullying campaign, all the while trying to be a husband to a wife and four kids, and then being a UFC on top of that.

“It’s been a hard year as far as injuries, a lot of stress. So I just want to simplify my life.”
