    Seriously no one finds this to be a big deal? Munoz is one of the sports most promising prospects. I love watching his fights and the fact that there wasn’t reason given besides an “injury” is worrisome.

    Terrible news. Munoz is exciting — vicious GnP.

    Mark tore his MCL training. He is still training his upper body 6 days a week with his trainer and is looking great. He will be back stronger than ever in 6-8 weeks. Don’t worry, you will see him again soon.
