Johnny Munoz reveals he fought against UFC contract and hopes to re-sign


LAS VEGAS – Johnny Munoz no longer has a fight on his UFC contract.

The UFC bantamweight fought the last fight of his contract on Saturday at UFC Fight Night 214. Munoz (12-2 MMA, 2-2 UFC) defeated Liudvik Sholinian (9-4-1 MMA, 0- 2 UFC) by unanimous decision on the event’s preliminary card.

Munoz doesn’t know what’s next, but he hopes to get another contract with the UFC.

“Of course I love fighting here,” Munoz said when asked if he would like to re-sign. “There is no better organization. I know a lot of people say this and that, but this is where I always wanted to be.

As for the potential added pressure of going into a fight without a new UFC contract, Munoz said he felt calm. He wanted to perform well for a new contract, but not at the expense of stress.

“I was trying not to think about it,” Munoz said. “I feel like a lot of guys are thinking, ‘Oh, I have to go out there and win. At the end of the day, I like fighting here, (but) the most important thing is that I’m out of it. Company, I love fighting here, but at the end of the day, I’m more important. I’m a very selfish person, and you have to be to be awesome. The big thing for me is, fuck all that, I don’t care about that noise. I have to show myself and be me. I know that if I show up and be myself, the other things will add up.
