Does Munoz have what it takes?

He's been on a warpath his last three fights. Mark Munoz (8-1) is on a mission. His only loss has come at the hands of Matt Hamill at UFC 96. Since then Munoz has collected wins over Nick Catone, Ryan Jensen, and Kendall Grove.

An NCAA title winner at 197 lbs., Mark Munoz presses for takedowns and utilizes his grappling prowess as his chief strategy in the cage.

Munoz is scheduled to face world ranked middleweight Yushin Okama, a Japanese fighter with prominent wins over Nick Thompson, Mike Swick, and Dean Lister, among others. Their 'UFC on Versus 2' match may determine future title contention in the UFC middleweight division.

In preparation for the big match, Mark has kicked his training program up a notch, recruiting popular names like Jason "Mayhem" Miller, Anderson Silva, and Jake Ellenberger to add the finishing touches to a brutal training camp.
