Mark Munoz on how it felt being injured and that chael offered to pay for surgery

Quote:
Mark Munoz is ready to call out Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva with a win over Chris Weidman at UFC on Fuel TV 4. However back in January Munoz was set to face Chael Sonnen at UFC on Fox: Evans vs. Davis but had to withdraw due to injury and was replaced by Michael Bisping. He admits it was hard to watch the bout between Sonnen and Bisping.

“I was actually really down, I was down. After watching that fight it was crazy. After seeing Chael’s performance and Bisping’s performance, I was like, ‘That could have been me.’ I could have put a really good performance inside the Octagon, so I was down. I’m just going to be real, I’m real right now. I cried man. That was my opportunity and this and that and I could have been number one contender and it was really hard for me. I had people just encouraging me. I’m a religious guy, and in my mind of faith, people were just pouring over me saying, ‘Hey, this is your story. This is what you’re going to go through. Adversity is the dust that polishes a diamond. You’re a diamond brother, you’re going to go through this and you’re going to shine at the end of this. Life is 10-percent of what happens to you and 90-percent of how you react to it. This is your story, have a great attitude, get your head out of your butt and start training.’ I was down for about three months after the injury. I couldn’t snap out of it and I was training and people were like, ‘Munoz, what’s wrong with you?’ And I was like, ‘I’m, good.’ But it was affecting me. After those three months, I had twelve weeks to get back in shape and I truly believe adversity makes a fighter who he his and a person who they are. I’m so in shape right now. I’m better in shape than I was with Chris Leben and I broke him in the second round. I’ve been working on my striking and it is great and my MMA wrestling and my transitions are good and I’m feeling good for this fight. I’m going in there confident and on fire so you’re going to see a ferocious ‘Filipino Wrecking Machine,’ for sure.”

Munoz also reveals that Chael Sonnen offered to assist him in paying for the surgery to repair his elbow.

“Yes, that is very true. And for everyone that hates Chael Sonnen, Chael Sonnen is actually a guy that is a very compassionate person. He actually extended his hand to me and he goes, ‘If you need any financial help, I will help you out. I know how much this fight meant to you and I will help you out.’ That speaks volumes about him man, it really does. I was like, ‘Man thank you Chael, I really appreciate that and if I really do need it, I will ask for it, but I am good.’ Despite what people may think about him, he is actually a really good person.”

Munoz is one stand up guy and I hope gets the win vs. Weidman.

That gesture from Chael is pure class. If people take away the hype and some overboard comments (He's a marketing genius) you'd find a super down to earth guy who has a heart of gold.

This whole Anderson/Chael II discussion has burnt most people out by now I think.

Man that had some heart put into it. What a great guy, sad though that he's going to have to face Andy. On the plus side, I think people are finally realizing what kind of guy Chael is. As a #1 Silva fan, I have come to forgive him for what he has said because in reality he was only trying to pick a fight with Silva (and be a marketing genious) because he TRUELY believed he would win after their first fight.

It had to be a lot. Because there's no way possible that Chael is a caring individual who has a good heart and a general respect for a fellow fighter. It's just...unfathomable.
