Munoz and Boetsch are two of the top ten contenders in the UFC middleweight class.
Mark was born in a US military base in Japan to Rodolfo Munoz of Pasay City and Imelda Kenery of Santa Ana, Manila.
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.
