Toyo is now sponsoring Ultimate Fight Club middleweight fighter Mark Munoz. Nicknamed "The Filipino Wrecking Machine," Munoz has a 10-2-0 record; he will face Brazilian Demian Maia on June 11 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada.

The 6-foot-tall, 33-year-old Munoz weighs 185 pounds. A former wrestling coach at the University of California at Davis, Munoz specializes in both wrestling and Muay Thai. He will wear the Toyo logo on his fighting gear while also promoting the company’s tires through personal appearances and other marketing efforts.

“I am honored to be part of the Toyo Tires team,” says Munoz. “As a professional athlete, I am driven to perform and having the support of a great company like Toyo Tires just motivates me even more.”

“We are excited to have Mark Munoz represent Team Toyo for 2011,” says Stan Chen, manager of events and motorsports. “Munoz is a popular fighter in the sport of mixed martial arts and will represent the Toyo Tires brand well.”

“We are very fortunate to have a great partner like Toyo Tires. Toyo Tires is an exceptional company and Mark Munoz is an exceptional athlete,” says Jeff Meyer, CEO of MMA, Inc., the fighter’s management firm. “The support Mark receives from Toyo Tires enables him to focus on training and increasing his performance in the octagon. It is a great combination.”

Munoz is the second MMA fighter to be sponsored by Team Toyo this year; UFC lightweight Anthony “Showtime” Pettis joined the squad in March.
