Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) Filipino Wrecking Machine Mark Munoz sings the "Wrecking Ball." Most of you have probably already seen Miley Cyrus's original video of her hit single. In Munoz's rendition, the UFC middleweight fighter cries, hit pads with a sledgehammer, and even rides atop a punching bag.
Watch Munoz's hilarious Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" parody below:
Munoz did his best impression of Cyrus. Well, except for a few things. He wasn't naked and there wasn't any tongue action there. As far as his singing is concerned, you must admit it was quite impressive too. It was a bit of effort and a bit of autotune, perhaps, but Munoz is an amazingly good sport. He even shared the video on his official Web site.
"This is my version of 'Wrecking Ball' by Miley Cyrus for the Fighters Only MMA Award Show last weekend," Munoz wrote.
"I wasn't at the awards, but I was there in spirit. Haha."
Munoz's "Wrecking Ball" parody was a skit featured during the 6th Annual Fighters Only World Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Awards. The awards night was took place on Feb. 7 and it will be aired on Fox Sports on Feb. 16. MMAJunkie has the complete list of winners if you want to know who made it before it airs on TV, just make sure you check the local listings of your cable providers for start times.
Munoz is 13-4 in his career. He had a four-fight winning streak from 2010 to 2011 before losing to Chris Weidman on UFC on Fuel TV 4 in July 2012. He fought twice in 2013, winning against Tim Boetsch in UFC 162 and losing to Lyoto Machida in UFC Fight Night 30.
What did you think of Munoz's "Wrecking Ball" parody? Often we get this mental image of fighters, like Munoz, being serious individuals. It is interesting to see them take a break and even attempt to act silly. It means people can stop taking themselves too seriously, at least for some time.
