Edgar, with a record of 22 wins and eight losses, is a seasoned combatant in the UFC and is the former lightweight champion. He has moved across weight classes twice now, first down to featherweight (where he twice unsuccessfully challenged for the title); UFC Fight Night: Munhoz vs. Edgar will be his bantamweight debut after moving down in weight again and signing a new multi-fight contract with the UFC.

Edgar’s first fight at this new weight class will be against Pedro Munhoz, who is ranked fifth on the UFC’s bantamweight roster with a record of 18 wins and only four losses. Both men are entering UFC Apex in Las Vegas following recent defeats, but Edgar — getting on in years at age 38 — has had a rougher time of things lately. The former lightweight champ was defeated in his two latest bouts and has won only one of his last four fights, while Munhoz has won three of his last four. Frankie Edgar is understandably eager to prove he’s still got what it takes to hang in the Octagon, but Pedro Munhoz will be no less hungry for a win here as it could line him up for a title shot in the near future.

The co-main event at UFC Fight Night: Munhoz vs. Edgar is a light heavyweight contest between veteran fighter Ovince Saint Preux (24-14) and up-and-comer Alonzo Menifield (9-1). There are currently 11 fights in total planned for the main and preliminary cards, with the prelims starting at 5:30 PM ET and the main event slated for 8:30 p.m. ET. You can catch all the action by signing up for ESPN+ now.
