For the first time since 2009 we’ll be seeing Frankie Edgar face off against an opponent in a non-championship bout that doesn’t involve some sort of title being on the line.
Like everyone else Frankie Edgar will have to work his way back up the ladder and craft a new path for himself back to the title.
Hot off the heels of signing a 4-fight contract extension with the UFC and after his very brutal knockout loss to Cub Swanson, Charles Oliveira will be the man looking to upset the former Lightweight champion at the upcoming UFC 162.
Also added to this card is a great stylistic matchup between German kickboxer Dennis Siver and solid Jackson’s MMA striker Cub Swanson, with both coming off impressive winning streaks which will come to an end when the clash at the Silva vs Weidman headlined UFC 162.
With these two fights announced in addition to Chang Sung Jung vs Ricardo Limas, this sets up the division with some great potential matchups and gives fans a very bright and competitive future for the Featherweight division and it’s reigning champion.
Let us know what you think of these matchups in the comments below.
