Former UFC fighter Mark Munoz was fired from his high school wrestling coaching gig after letting two kids work out their differences with boxing gloves on.
Two Fairmont private school students allegedly got into a fight and went to Munoz in the middle of their fight to ask for boxing gloves to decide the match.
Munoz reportedly had no idea the two were arguing and allowed them to use the gloves, thinking it would be playful.
According to TMZone parent was extremely upset by the fight and called for discipline.
The fighter-turned-coach has been suspended from school for the rest of the year and is not expected to return.
A Fairmont spokesperson said: “[He] will not return to campus.
Munoz (14-6) last appeared in the Octagon against Luke Barnatt. The former won via unanimous decision and retired after that. Munoz’s other high profile bouts include fights against Lyoto Machida, Demian Maya and Chris Weidman.
