Pedro Munhoz (18-4), a fighter in the UFC lightweight division, spoke about the upcoming match with Frankie Edgar (23-8-1).
“I have a fight with a legend, a real gangster. I already fought a veteran in the person of Jeff Curran when I spoke at the RFA. But the duel with Frankie Edgar is still a more significant event.
Every day I think about how to make him give up. Frankie is a tough opponent. He is very good. He has a black jiu-jits belt issued by Henzo Gracie and he never lost submissions, so if I make him knock it will be a great achievement that will go down in history.
I think in the lightest division he will feel even better than in the featherweight. And I’m sure that he’ll have no problems. He is a true professional, and in fights with guys of his size he will have more opportunities to demonstrate his skills.
An interesting confrontation awaits us, and I am very happy about this. I love to test myself in fights with the best fighters in the world. ” Munhoz concluded.
