The one with all to lose here is Edgar. A loss would mean he will be looking at a potential retirement
Time for Frankie Edgar to finally fire on all cylinders when he faces off Pedro Munhoz on Saturday, August 22, in the Bantamweight division. The clash was slated to happen in July but had to be delayed after Munhoz tested positive for Covid-19.
Nicknamed "The Young Punisher", Munhoz has spent half a dozen years in the UFC and will be keen to shake the rust off and give Edgar a tough fight. On the other hand, Edgar has been in the UFC since 2007 and despite the early success, he had a string of losses that saw him come down to the Bantamweight division.

Pre-buzz around the bout
It is a spicy clash as Munhoz comes off a loss to Aljamain Sterling at UFC 238 that broke his three-match winning streak.
