The last year has not exactly gone to plan for Mark Striegl. He lost his UFC debut and suffered serious facial injuries and then saw his sophomore appearance in the octagon cancelled at the last minute.

But ‘Mugen’ appears to be fit and healthy judging by this video he just posted on his Instagram:

Striegl nails a takedown in training at the Brawler’s Lab gym in Manila. The 33 year old does not currently have a fight booked, but it has been a frustrating period for the Fil-Am bantamweight.

His UFC debut was delayed after he contracted Covid-19. When he finally did make his first appearance in the octagon it ended with a trip to the hospital with a fractured orbital.

The reasons for his withdrawal from the UFC 261 card was never disclosed. But hopefully it won’t be too long before we see Striegl back in the octagon and his takedowns look as if they are already on point.
