MAIN CARD

BANTAMWEIGHT 135 LBS

Pedro Munhoz had just turned 20 when Frankie Edgar made his UFC debut. The wide-eyed Brazilian was dreaming of becoming a professional MMA fighter and Edgar was among his first idols. Now, they are contemporaries and Munhoz will attempt to bolster his career at the expense of the former champion on Saturday when they meet in the main

event of UFC Fight Night: Munhoz vs. Edgar. Their clash headlines the MMA showcase from the Apex facility in Las Vegas, with the main UFC on ESPN card slated for 8:30 p.m. ET. Munoz turned pro in 2009 and won his first 10 pro fights before losing in his UFC debut.

At 38 years young, Frankie Edgar is finally making a move to bantamweight. If he would have done this years ago, what could have been, right? He’s not getting any favors here, as he’ll be looking across at #5 Pedro Munhoz. Munhoz has been on a little run, and against some big names. In 2015, he dropped a close split decision to Jimmie

Rivera, then went on to win four straight. John Dodson edged him out in another close split, then Munhoz made it another three straight wins before losing to Aljamain Sterling in his last matchup just over a year ago. So in the last five years, while

only losing two close decisions, he’s won seven of nine, including a highlight knockout against former champ Cody Garbrandt. Last we saw Frankie, he was on the losing end of a quick TKO against the Korean Zombie in December of 2019. That loss put him on a two-fight skid, while also losing three of four in the last two years.
