Mark Munoz parodies Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball


The world of MMA can sometimes be so serious, that a lot of the fun is lost. Fans and media need to remember that through all the controversies there are always silver linings. Over the past week a lot of MMA news has been negative, so today we are going to switch it up.

This past weekend, Fighters Only magazine held the World MMA Awards. In one of the funnier segments of the show, Mark Munoz did a short skit parodying Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball. If you have not seen the original Wrecking Ball video yet, check it out here before watching Munoz’s skit.

Munoz’s nickname is the ‘Filipino Wrecking Machine’, so it works perfectly into the skit. Watch Munoz cry, hit pads with a sledgehammer, and more in the video above.

Munoz (13-4) is currently in a rough patch in his career. After winning four straight in 2010-2011, Munoz faced off against Middleweight prospect Chris Weidman. Weidman earned his shot at Anderson Silva’s belt with an unbelievable step in elbow KO. Munoz bounced back from that loss with a dominating win over Tim Boetsch at UFC 162. His next fight, however, was another big setback as he was knocked out by Lyoto Machida. As of now, his next bout is not scheduled.
