Making good on his eventual bantamweight call, former UFC lightweight best, Frankie Edgar got off to a winning start at his new 135-pound home – taking a close split decision win over #5 ranked challenger, Pedro Munhoz. Snapping a two-fight slide, Toms River native, Edgar took home a 49-46, 48-47, and a 47-48 split judging win.

Gritting out a stern, aggressive, pace-pushing Munhoz for all twenty-five minutes – Mark Henry and Ricardo Almeida student, Edgar countered on cue on his way to success. Eating a massive right-hand, and stiff right calf kick for the majority of the headliner, the ever-present Edgar mixed in some rapid combinations, with two successful takedown shots – to conceivably upset the odds at the UFC Apex. Back in the win-column – the 38-year-old can continue with blueprints for one final push toward champion status which he once held, two divisions higher.
