Mark Munoz: Obese to beast

 

A title-run ending loss to Chris Weidman and multiple injuries derailed Mark Munoz psychologically; by January the middleweight had ballooned to 260 lbs.

Munoz fights Tim Boetsch at UFC 162 next Saturday live on PPV, and he is a new man.

Munoz explains, via Twitter.

Mark Muñoz ‏@mark_munoz

My sincerest gratitude to @Todd_Norman @sunfare & many thx to @rileyrross Sam & Monica Calavitta, & Stu White!

Battled through injury, self-doubt, and depression. I turned to food for comfort and what I found was more heartache. A never ending cycle of "eating because I was sad and sad because I was eating."

No matter what adversity, you have in your life, you can be transcendent over it with God by your side and you can accomplish all things. Thank you all who believed in, encouraged, motivated and prayed for me! I thank you for you compassion and care! Now I am going in confident to #UFC162 with all I had to work through!

There r a lot asking, "how long it took for me 2go from 261 to 199." Took 5 months of #desire #direction #discipline #diligence #dedication

It's amazing he did that, takes a lot of determination/commitment, even for a guy like Mark who has probably been dieting and training all his life before getting that way.

Crazy transformation. Funny thing is, he was still a little smaller than Big Country. Can you imagine how many minds would be blown if Roy secretly did the same thing and posted pics a few months later?

if nelson would be bright, he would make a documentary while losing the weight and get massive publicity and exposure.
