Mark “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” Muñoz is making a return to the Philippines for UFC Fight Night Manila, but he won’t be in his usual fighting gear.

Muñoz, the former UFC middleweight contender who retired last year, will be in Manila to promote UFC’s second live event here which will be held on October 15 at Mall of Asia Arena.

Muñoz has been tapped as the event’s official ambassador and part of his role is to appear in several press and fan engagements.

Starting this month to October, Muñoz will be conducting MMA clinics, workshops meet-and-greet sessions with the press and fans apart from participating in community activities and charity events as part of the UFC’s “We Are All Fighters” campaign.

The last time the 38-year-old Muñoz was here was in May last year when he beat Luke Barnatt in an emotional farewell fight during the UFC’s first staging in Manila.

“It is a dream to come back to the country that gave me an unforgettable ending to my journey as a professional fighter,” Muñoz said.

“As I return to promote UFC Fight Night Manila, I also hope to share my passion, talent, and abilities to our young Filipino athletes. I look forward to helping my kababayans take their game to the next level. I hope to see more Filipinos make a name for themselves in the Octagon in the future.”
