Still searching for first UFC win
LightweightUFC
April 17, 2021
Munoz lost to Luis Pena via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Munoz fought very well in a fight that could have legitimately gone either way. He clearly won Round 1 before slowly allowing Pena back into the fight. Munoz had his difficulties in the striking exchanges between the two men, but he landed three successful takedowns and did a nice job of targeting Pena's lead leg with kicks. Munoz deserves credit for his effort. He was right there with Pena for the entire bout despite entering as a +140 underdog. The 31-year-old Dallas native and Team Alpha Male product is still in search of his first UFC victory.

No longer undefeated

Munoz lost to Nasrat Haqparast via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC on ESPN+ 32 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Munoz was able to set up a takedown from a big left hand early in the first, but that was the only one of his eight attempts that was successful. It was downhill from there, as the (+230) underdog was thoroughly outclassed by a better fighter. His significant strike count was doubled by Haqparast in every round, and he ended up with just 37 total (compared to 104 for Haqparast). Munoz withdrew from what was supposed to be his UFC debut in February and he wasn't competitive here, so there's likely not much to get excited about moving forward.
