LAS VEGAS—Mark “Filipino Wrecking Machine” Munoz won a mixed martial arts (MMA) undercard fight by unanimous decision over Tim Boetsch on July 6.

The family relocated to Vallejo, California, in 1980, when Mark was two years old. Mark had his first MMA fight in July 17, 2007.

Munoz’s love of athletics began at a very young age, his main focus being football. However, when he was a sophomore in high school, he suffered from an injury that prevented him from playing the sport. So he took up mixed martial arts.
