Midnight Mania! After the positive COVID-19 test by Pedro Munhoz, Bantamweights fights for the fight of Frankie Edgar


Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Pedro Munhoz is the last fighter to test positive for COVID-19, while the virus continues to wreak havoc on athletes who must visit Fight Island. Munhoz’s illness leaves Frankie Edgar without a dance partner for July 15, and the initial report was that Edgar would be left without an opponent.

However, several Bantamweights are fighting for a fight with the former champion. Currently, the favorite is the top wrestler Aljamain Sterling, who recently strangled Corey Sandhagen to position himself as the best competitor at 135 pounds. after Jose Aldo and Petr Yan settled their affairs.

I don’t know if the fight makes sense for “Funkmaster”, who is already the # 1 candidate, but maybe he wants an extra paycheck!

Aside from Sterling’s seemingly imminent travel plans, many other fighters throw their hats into the ring. For example, Ricky Simon is already in Abu Dhabi (and therefore COVID negative) to corner Paige VanZant.

Likewise, the always exciting Marlon Vera is in town. Vera’s last fight was a very competitive loss to Song Yadong, and there is no doubt that “Chito” is just the type to replace on short notice.

Cody Stamann, who won an excellent victory a few weeks ago against Brian Kelleher, also threw his name in the hat. It should be noted that the fight against Kelleher took place at variable weight, because Stamann reduced a lot of weight. Edgar probably wants to make his debut at Bantamweight, so it’s a potential hurdle.

Finally, it’s been about a year since the last time we saw Jimmie Rivera, ranked n ° 9, inside the Octagon, but his manager claims that he also wants the fight.

Ultimately, it appears that the UFC and Frankie Edgar have many options for discussing whether Edgar is ready to fight a new opponent. Who would you like to see “The Answer” battle?
