    ScottD, article says he fights at LHW. Seems like a good prospect but I don’t think I would have given him that kind of money yet.

    High six figures doesn’t seem likely to me. But he is a great prospect. When I interviewed Urijah Faber in Philly last November, he was raving about Munoz off the record.
