Munoz fighting to KO bullying
Today, Mark Munoz is a contender in the UFC middleweight division, and a former NCAA Division I National Champion wrestler. But the man known as “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” only made his way to the mats after being bullied as a kid.
Now, Munoz is working with the Orange County Department of Education to create an anti-bullying campaign.
UFC Ultimate Insider accompanied Munoz to a speaking engagement at Valley High School in Santa Ana, California, where the 13-3 competitor--who squares off with Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida later this month in Manchester, England--shared his personal story with bullying, and how it ultimately led him to the Octagon.
Munoz and teammate Jake Ellenberger discuss the importance of spreading the anti-bullying message and how everyone can play a role in preventing bullying from happening in their schools and their communities.
