Pedro Munhoz is excited to share the Octagon with Frankie Edgar.
“Frankie is a guy who used to have my attention because it was not a jiu-jitsu guy fighting a boxing guy,” Munhoz said during virtual media day (via MMAJunkie). “It was a well-rounded guy. Now I have the opportunity to fight a living legend like that in a main event. It’s one of the biggest fights of my life. … This is one of the biggest fights of my career, but I do believe every fight is the biggest fight of my career. My fights previously prepared me for this.”
Although this is Frankie Edgar’s debut fight at bantamweight, Munhoz knows he is a big name, so he plans on making a statement. He is looking to get back into the win column and believes a win over Edgar puts him into the driver’s seat for a title shot.
“I do believe that I did my homework,” Munhoz said. “Saturday is a good test to see where I am. I want to make a big statement, and I want to be next for the title shot.”
