Jeebus, nice KO from Munoz. (A guy that big is a tough assignment for your fourth MMA fight.)

Yeah, he fights below 155. UFC doesn't have a class below 155. It's just that simple.

Yeah, and Grigsby has a slew of fights. Granted, they're not top notch competition, but he still has some seasoning to him. He's got a bunch of KOs and six submissions. So that, plus his awkward size, makes him a tough task for someone in their fourth fight.

And he just pounded Chuck Grisby completely out.
Munoz definitely has a stong base on the ground - but his guard passing needs some work.

He played to his strengths in this fight and pounded out Grisby so he seems to be on the right track so far.

I'm sure the WEC is paying him awfully well these days, that's why he's in the WEC.

Plus, UFC doesn't focus so much on the lighter weights. WEC has kind of come along and snatched up the elite fighters at lighter weights, it seems. That being said, I'm sure Dana White would just love to get him the UFC.

Before long though (especially if he wins tonight), either Faber's going to have make some joint-organization fights or other fighters from other organizations are going to have to come to him. There's really no one left in teh WEC for him to fight if he beats Pulver.

I guess I never realized that the UFC just doesn't have a weight class lower than 155.

That's what you call a swift submission.

Having freaky long legs on the bottom helps, eh? Nice Jits right there.

I see Urijah's got the cornrows going tonight. He must have learned from Malignaggi because they're not long enough to require a between-round shearing.

See, I've always been told some other dude owned WEC.

I don't really follow that stuff too closely, obviously.
