Thread: Hamill vs. Munoz @ UFC 96

    Default Hamill vs. Munoz @ UFC 96

    Tough debut for Mark Munoz. Whats with Hamill continuing to face wrestlers?

    Rex Holman, Reese Andy, and now Munoz. Even Jesse Forbes wrestled in college.

    Its just not the best style matchups in my opinion as their wrestling cancels out and its an ugly stand up fight. There arent that many wrestlers at 205 so they could create better matchups.

    I also wonder why they are doing this. Like you said, new fighters with a great wrestling background aren't going to find Matt easy to get down. Almost a guaranteed loss for them.

    i'm convinced the ufc is all about stand up and anti wrestling. that's why they pair up wrestlers and why the mats are so damn soft.

    Tim Boetsch was another wrestler Hamil faced. He wrestled at Heavy for Lock Haven.

    Somewhat interesting that Munoz, Andy, and Holman all technically have better wrestling credentials than Hamill

    Munoz is not only a California hs state wrestling champion, he is also a division 1 college national champion. He should be right in the mix in terms of wrestling prowess and frankly, I'm excited to see which one wins that aspect of the match up. This fight could go either way. I don't like that one of them will go out with a loss, (barring a draw) but it is a fight that should be of a lot of interest to fans of wrestling who know both of these guys back grounds.
