Zuffa-owned World Extreme Cagefighting has signed former NCAA wrestling champion Mark Munoz to its roster, the Vallejo Times-Herald is reporting.

According to the paper, Munoz signed a guaranteed six fight contract. Financial terms were not disclosed but the paper quotes the light heavyweight as saying the deal is a “high six-figure” contract.

The report specifies that he is scheduled to make his WEC debut on June 1 in Sacramento, Calif. at the Arco Arena. The show will be televised on VERSUS and is expected to feature a WEC featherweight title match between Urijah Faber and Jens Pulver.

I always like to see former NCAA champs take a try at MMA. They already have an advantage of one great strength. I hope he does very well.
