A light heavyweight bout between former NCAA wrestling champion Mark Munoz and Arizona Combat Sports product Steve Steinbeiss has reportedly been signed to take place at a planned World Extreme Cagefighting event on September 10th.
The news comes from MMA Weekly, which has confirmed with sources from within Steinbeiss’ camp that bout agreements have been signed. The fight will be the first on an apparent multi-fight deal that Steinbeiss has signed with the promotion.
Munoz, a heralded wrestler out of Oklahoma State University, remains undefeated thus far in his professional career. He was victorious in his WEC debut back in June, scoring a first-round stoppage of Chuck Grigsby. Munoz currently trains alongside reigning WEC featherweight champion Urijah Faber.
Steinbeiss spent the early stages of his career under the BodogFight banner, winning two out of his three bouts in the promotion, including an impressive first-round TKO of HDNet Fights veteran Jeff Ford. He most recently defeated Franchesca Alcanter at a Rock & Sock Promotions event in June.
