Mark Munoz says the reason he is retiring because he needs to concentrate on himself

Mark Munoz (13-6 MMA, 9-6 UFC) is 1-4 in his last five bouts and has decided that his bout with Luke Barnatt at UFC Fight Night 66 will be his last.

Munoz recently commented on why he is retiring.

“I need to concentrate on myself sometimes, and this is one of those times,” he said. “I feel that, ‘Hey, I’ve done a lot, and although I wanted a 12-pound gold strap around my waist, I’ve got a precious treasure at home.’ And I need to tend to that.”

The event takes place on May 15 at SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, Philippines. The event airs on FOX Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

The main event for the event will be Frankie Edgar vs. Urijah Faber.
