I laughed my ass off as soon as I saw this thread title. If Mark Munoz feels like he's paid his dues more so than Hector, than this fight does make since in that aspect.
He's not ducking Silva. He's been calling Silva out for years, but he feels that he deserves respect from Mark Munoz, and I don't blame him for feeling this way. The way I see it, if he beats Boetsch the way he's been dominating everybody at Bellitor, he'll run through Munoz, and his title fight with Silva will inevitably happen anyway.
