Pedro “The Young Punisher” Munhoz (18-4) is the fifth ranked UFC Bantamweight challenger, and he’d certainly like a chance at another title. He was the Bantamweight champion in the RFA promotion before he made the move over to UFC. 

Munhoz is 3-1 over the last two years, but he’s coming off a loss to Aljamain Sterling back in June. There has been a lot of movement in this weight class after Henry Cejudo dropped the belt back in May, so a win could put Munhoz in the mix for top fights and eventually a title shot.

Frankie “The Answer” Edgar (22-8-1) is not currently ranked as a Bantamweight fighter, but he is eight in the UFC Featherweight rankings. This will be his debut at bantamweight, but Edgar has a long and successful career in the UFC.

Edgar was the UFC Lightweight champion for two years, and he also fought for the UFC Featherweight title several times. Edgar needs the change in weight, as he’s coming off a 1-3 stretch over the last three years. Could this be the reset Frankie needs, or the end of the road?
