Unfortunately, it appears UFC middleweight Mark Munoz won’t be back in the Octagon before the end of the year after disclosing he’d suffered an unknown foot injury while training and may spend a lengthy period of time on the sidelines as a result. Munoz has only fought a single time in 2012, losing by way of knockout to Chris Weidman, and missed a number of months earlier this year based on issues with his elbow.

“I am not sure if it is broken. I will be getting an official MRI and I will know. I just hope they do not have to break it in order for it to heal properly,” explained Munoz in an interview with Fight Hub TV, also saying it could be up to a year before he’s healthy again.

"The Filipino Wrecking Machine" also mentioned a staph infection had hindered his overall recovery though he’s since gotten it cleared up.

The 34-year old Munoz was on the cusp of title-contendership before falling to Weidman. He holds an overall record of 12-3 including wins over Aaron Simpson, Kendall Grove, Demian Maia, and Chris Leben.
