And the crazy son of a gun says he's confident enough to strike with the noted knockout artist (via Tatame):
"You know, I'm ready wherever the fight goes against Chris Leben. I'm a wrestler, so I'm gonna try to take him down, and I think he knows that, but at the same time I'm confident with my striking as well. So, I've proven myself to be a good mixed martial artist and you gonna see a mixed martial artist in there, no matter if it's on the feet or on the ground, you gonna see good aspects of both on my feet or on the ground. Yeah, I'm being more of a complete fighter now."
Famous last words? Or simply an effective method of delivery for misinformation?
Of course, "The Filipino Wrecking Machine" has better options, like his NCAA Division I wrestling credentials and proficiency in the grappling arts.
But he seems to think he's more of a complete fighter and if the fight plays itself out a certain way, he'll be in the pocket exchanging punches with Leben.
All that said, let's get some predictions, Maniacs. Which one of these two powerful middleweights will travel back across the pond having notched another victory? Munoz or Leben?
