Alexander Muñoz is an American mixed martial arts fighter and a veteran of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He began his career in 2001, and has since become one of the most successful fighters in his division. His skill set includes an aggressive mix of takedowns, ground-and-pound, and submissions. Muñoz has fought at multiple promotions throughout the world, including UFC Japan: “Revenge of The Warriors” in 2003 where he won a three round unanimous decision victory over Shigeki Matsui.
Muñoz made his professional debut against Houston Alexander at UFC 46 on January 31st 2004 when they faced off for a three round bout that ended with a split decision victory for Alex Munoz. After this win he was signed to the UFC’s light heavyweight division where he defeated future hall of fame inductee Dan Henderson by submission via rear naked choke at UFC 59: Reality Check on April 15th 2006. He then went on to compete against Forrest Griffin at the first ever season finale for The Ultimate Fighter reality show which aired live from Las Vegas on April 9th 2007. The fight went all five rounds but resulted in another loss for Munoz as Forrest took home a unanimous decision victory that night despite being rocked earlier by some hard shots from Alex early in Round 2.
Despite these losses, Muñoz pushed onward and would go onto win six consecutive fights between 2007-2009 before ultimately retiring after losing to Ryan Bader at UFC 119: Pro vs Nogueira II on September 25th 2010 via TKO due to doctor stoppage after only one minute into round two due to swelling around Alexanders left eye socket . He had amassed an impressive record during his nine year long career with fourteen wins out of eighteen total fights with four losses being come decisions or doctor stoppages due to injury rather than technical knockouts or submissions . Throughout his time fighting he showed great resilience , heart , courage & determination which are all qualities necessary for success inside any octagon battle . It was always clear that Alexander wanted nothing more than success each time he entered & exited it . This unyielding drive coupled with his relentless technical skill sets were surely part of why so many fans followed him as faithfully as they did during those years leading up to retirement .. something which even today still holds true among many who still regard him highly among peers regardless if their opinion differs upon whether or not they think another fighter may have been better during any given event involving him !
