No longer undefeated
LightweightUFC
August 9, 2020
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.
