Munhoz is more proven in the UFC bantamweight division and deserves to be the favorite, but you shouldn’t completely discount Edgar here either.

In the co-headliner, OSP opened as a -165 betting favorite, with the comeback on Menifield at +125. OSP is far more proven at 205lbs but Menifield has incredible KO power. OSP needs to be careful, but if he can avoid getting knocked out in the first round he should have a big edge when it comes to conditioning the further the fight goes.
