Munhoz lately advised MMAJunkie.com that he knew he’d finally be combating somebody as high-ranked as Garbrandt:
“I was not surprised (to get this fight). The way I fight is entertaining to people. I’m standing there looking for the knockout. When the fight goes to the floor most likely I’m going to get a guillotine or tap you out. He’s an exciting fighter, I’m an exciting fighter so I didn’t see any reason for this fight not to happen. It’s a great fight for the public. Out of the last seven fights, I’ve won six. Against John Dodson, I don’t have anything against him, but I thought I won that fight. Marlon Moraes and Raphael Assuncao are going to fight, they are beasts and I believe they both deserve to fight for the title. If I beat Cody and they want to match me up with one of those guys, great. If it’s for the title, even greater. I’m here to do my job. To come and fight and whoever they put in front of me that’s who I’ll try to finish.”
