    World Extreme Cagefighting on Friday announced that former NCAA wrestler Mark Munoz would be making his promotional debut against Iowa based fighter Chuck Grigsby on June 1 at the Arco Arena in Sacramento, Calif.

    Munoz is highly regarded as one the brighter prospects in mixed martial arts since making his debut in the sport in July of 2007. He enters his WEC debut fight with a perfect 3-0 record, having signed a six-fight deal with the Zuffa owned organization.

    He is a decorated collegiate wrestler, earning All-American honors twice while wrestling for Oklahoma State University. The pinnacle of his wresting career came in 2001, when he won the NCAA championship at 197 pounds.

    Munoz enters the fight having earned a decision victory over Tony Rubalcava in his last fight at Palace Fighting Championships 4. Grigsby comes off a submission victory over Mike Glenn at Midwest Cage Championships 11.

    The promotion also officially announced two previously rumored bouts. WEC bantamweight champion Miguel Torres makes the first defense of his title against featherweight King of Pancrase Yoshiro Maeda, who replaces the injured Manny Tapia. Former lightweight champion “Razor” Rob McCullough returns to action against wrestler Kenneth Alexander, who previously defeated McCullough in 2002 by decision.
