The terms of the deal were not disclosed by Munoz, who holds a UFC record of 13 wins (6 KO) against 5 losses.
Muñoz is coming of a submission loss to Gegard Mousasi at the UFC Fight Night in Berlin, Germany on May 31, 2014.
He also lost two of his last three fights—against Lyoto Machida on October 26, 2013 via first round KO (Head kick) and Chris Weidman on July 11, 2012 via KO (Elbow and Punches) in the second round. His lone win came against Tim Boetsch in the undercard of UFC 162 in a three-round unanimous decision victory.
“That was a tough loss. I will pick up the pieces and keep going,” said Muñoz after the loss to Mousasi.
With a new deal in place, he’ll get the chance to bounce back.
