He's still good enough to beat the like of Boetsch, Maia and Dollaway

Yeah he didn't looked good vs. Machida or Mousasi, but so "Hacksaw" CB Dropaway did?

Shields and Okami got cut because they are really good but tend to be boring and tend to make their opponents not look good even if the happen to lose to them. The only guys I can think of that looked good against them(outside of a quick finish) recently are Anderson and Lombard.
Never thought of it that way but your right they don't like fighters who can make any fight boring regardless of who your fighting. Phil Davis is similar.

Munoz seems a great dude, but his fighting skills are very dubious. His wrestling hasn't translated well at all, bar the Boetsch fight,

I think he'll dominate Roan Carneiro, who has no business fighting at 185lbs, then he'll either headline the UFN in Manila or co-main, we'll see.

Munoz > Leben > Wanderlei > Arona > Overeem > Werdum > Fedor

The UFC loves fighters that either smash people or get smashed. Munoz does both and he made a guy like Okami fight him in an entertaining fight.

He's a fine mid to low level fighter..Problem is that he is one of, if not the most, over rated fighter ever.

Even his biggest win, against Maia, he should have lost. Re watch that puppy. He was losing the stand up the entire fight! He's known for having great wrestling and a well rounded striking game but he consistently gets outclassed in both areas by top ten fighters.

Give CB Dollaway a rematch with him and I'd bet on Dollaway.

Define "good".

He looks terrible in every fight. Utterly terrible. Gun shy, slow, horrible TD accuracy.

He should just stick to coaching. Not even bashing but thats the best thing for him.

The UFC run 50 shows a year they need fighters who have a name, it's the same reason Hendo will continue to get fights near the top of the card. If the UFC ran less shows they could start trimming the fat of the roster. Not to say Munoz doesn't deserve a spot, he's still a pretty good fighter all of his losses are to top guys in the MW division.
