UFC Vegas 7: Munhoz vs Edgar Results
UFC Vegas 7 goes down this weekend at the APEX Center in Las Vegas. In the main event, Frankie Edgar makes his long awaited bantamweight debut against Pedro Munhoz, and will be looking to become only the twelve fighter in the promotion’s history to win in three different weight classes.
Edgar will also be looking to get back to winning ways, after losses to Max Holloway and ‘The Korean Zombie’. Munhoz will be looking to get back to winning ways as well, after losing a unanimous decision against Aljamain Sterling at UFC 238.
In the UFC Vegas 7 co-main event, Ovince Saint Preux was expected to return back to 205lbs and face Alonzo Menifield. However, OSP was pulled from the fight a few hours before the card started, after testing positive for the coronavirus. The fight will now be rescheduled for September 5th. As a result, Marcin Prachnio’s light heavyweight clash with Mike Rodriguez has been moved to the co-main event slot.
