Edgar vs. Munhoz

Edgar (23-8) was supposed to make his 135-pound debut this past January against Cory Sandhagen. But the star elected to fight featherweight Chan Sung Jung in December first, and was stopped by the contender.

Munhoz (18-4), meanwhile, is coming off a decision loss to Aljamain Sterling in June, 2019. The veteran was scheduled to fight Edgar in July of this year, but Munhoz tested positive for COVID-19 and the fight was postponed.

Munhoz tipped the scales at 136 pounds for Saturday’s main event, and Edgar was 135.
