A bantamweight clash between Frankie Edgar and Pedro Munhoz will be taking place four days later than originally anticipated.

Initially scheduled for UFC 251 on July 11, the bout has been moved to UFC Fight Night on July 15, where it will be the co-main event. Edgar vs. Munhoz was slated for the prelims at UFC 251. Ag Fight was first to report the change. Both events will be held at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

Edgar will make his 135-pound debut after successful stints at featherweight and lightweight in the UFC. “The Answer” is currently on a two-bout skid after falling to Max Holloway in a 145-pound title fight at UFC 240 and suffering a first-round TKO loss against Chan Sung Jung at UFC Fight Night 165.

Munhoz has won seven of his last nine Octagon appearances dating back to 2016. Most recently, however, he dropped a unanimous decision to Aljamain Sterling at UFC 238 in June 2019.

The UFC card on June 15 is headlined by a featherweight showdown between Calvin Kattar and Dan Ige.
