UFC 251 Edgar vs Munhoz live in Las Vegas for Saturday’s UFC 251 pay-per-view event. In the main event contest at UFC Apex.
UFC 251 will be held at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, July 11. Once again there will be no fans in attendance and the event will be closed to the public. The Early Prelims will kick off at 6pm ET / 3pm PT, the Prelims will follow after at 8pm ET / 5pm PT and the Main Card will start at 10pm / 7pm PT.
Edgar will make his 135-pound debut when he battles Pedro Munhoz on July 11. The UFC has yet to announce the matchup or the event location.
Edgar (23-8-1) was originally scheduled to make his bantamweight debut back in January; however, “The Answer” stepped in on short notice to replace the injured Brian Ortega against Chan Sung Jung at UFC Busan last December, a featherweight fracas that ended in Edgar’s second straight loss at 145 pounds.
The submission-savvy Munhoz (18-4, 1 NC) is currently ranked No. 7 in the bantamweight division and should prove to be a stiff test for the debuting Edgar. “The Young Punisher” has won three of his last four, including his technical knockout win over Cody Garbrandt at UFC 235 roughly one year back.
