Munoz is set to face Chris Weidman in a bout which may determine the next Middleweight number one contender at UFC on Fuel 4.
“I think that’s setting it up to where should I win that fight, I should be getting a title shot. I’m looking to win the fight, I’m looking to win it with flying colors, and I’m definitely going to be requesting after the fight a title shot,”
Munoz states that in the past he has let his fighting do the talking but come UFC on Fuel 4 he’s going to be more vocal.
“The thing is I’ve always said that I’m going to let my fighting do the talking, and my fighting has done the talking, but now I’m going to do both. I’m going to state my case. I’m going to let the fighting do the talking and I’m also going to verbalize it and say I deserve a title shot.”
Munoz believes he is at the peak of his powers and there is no better time for him to challenge for the Middleweight Title.
“I do feel that this is my time. I do feel that all the events leading up to this point have actually culminated up to this point of my career. After having the career that I have had, it’s a lot of ups and downs and I think a career’s going to go through that. Mine is no different,”
Currently on a four fight win streak Munoz believes the losses to Yushin Okami and Matt Hamill have only made him stronger.
“I’ve been through the ups and downs and the times when I was down are the times where I had to get back up and climb again. Those are the times that actually made me tougher and those times are the times that are going to help me get to the top. I truly believe this is my time.”
