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 over 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

Someone should hit him up on twitter and break it down. I'm sure a crazy workout regime went with his diet. No way someone does that on diet alone.

Wish he posted up how he did this, would be great to get the insight he used for his transformation.
