Who will win UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs Munhoz?

Frankie Edgar is building up some resume across a variety of UFC weight divisions. Claiming the lightweight championship way back in 2010, he defended it three times before finally handing the belt to Benson Henderson almost two years later.

The American dropped to featherweight and has a mixed record there, including losing a title fight to Jose Aldo on debut in 2013, and he now makes his first bow at bantamweight. All told, the 38-year-old has a 23-8 record in the UFC.

While Edgar, who calls himself "The Answer", has been bouncing around divisions, Munhoz has carved out a long career as a bantamweight. Making his professional debut back in 2009, he reeled off 10 consecutive wins before joining the UFC in 2014.

Munhoz (18-4 record) is yet to earn a UFC title fight. But the fifth-ranked bantamweight could take another step towards that goal with a win over Edgar. This is a tight one to call but we're leaning towards Munhoz taking advantage of this opportunity and moving onto potentially bigger nights ahead.
