Mark Munoz: “Plain and simple, I have what it takes to beat him and beat him dominantly.”

Mark Munoz: “Plain and simple, I have what it takes to beat him and beat him dominantly.”

UFC middleweight Michael Bisping has been talking plenty of trash about Mark Munoz since a match-up between the two was announced for an October 26 show in England. The smack-spewing Brit has even tried to make things personal by poking fun at a bout of depression Munoz overcame after being shelved for a year due to injury.

Though Munoz is well-aware of Bisping’s behavior, the 13-3 “Filipino Wrecking Machine” isn’t bothered by it for a few reasons. Not only is he confident he has what it takes to beat “The Count” at UFC Fight Night 30, but he isn’t at all concerned with Bisping’s arsenal of abilities.

“That stuff doesn’t bother me. I show my talk inside the Octagon,” said Munoz in an interview with RM Sports contributor Rick J. Lee. “He was telling me he was going to beat me into depression…but the fact of the matter is, he has pillows for fists. He hasn’t knocked anybody out and he said he’s gonna knock me out? He hasn’t knocked anybody out. It is gonna be like a pillow fight when I fight him. He’s gonna have pillows and I have hammers, so who is gonna win that fight?”

“Plain and simple, I have what it takes to beat him and beat him dominantly,” he concluded.

Bisping (24-5) has compiled fourteen TKOs to his credit though he’s known more for the volume of strikes he lands rather than putting opponents to sleep with a singular shot.

    He better be able to take Bisping down or he’s in for a long night…I’m not a big fan of Bisping but if he avoids the takedowns and works his Jab well he’ll take this.

    I’d love to see Munoz pull it off but I’m not sure he’ll be able to do it. The only guys to KO Bisping (Hendo and Belfort) have insane KO power and are known for putting guys to sleep. Wrestlers like Chael and Rashad have won narrow decisions but I wouldn’t necessarily put Munoz on their level. As a pure wrestler, sure, but not as a complete MMA fighter. Both guys are talking like they’ll beat the hell out of the other but I see it being a fairly close contest with Bisping pulling out a unanimous decision.

    I can’t stand Bisping but I think he wins an easy decision… I think he avoids the takedown attempts and puts a boxing clinic on Munoz… I wish Munoz the best though. Maybe Mark can land a huge looping right hand, floor him & pound him out….but I wouldn’t put a dollar on it
