UFC Bantamweight Pedro Munhoz Demands A Rematch Against Frankie Edgar

UFC Bantamweight Pedro Munhoz Demands A Rematch Against Frankie Edgar

Following their five-round war on Saturday night, Pedro Munhoz has called out for a rematch against Frankie Edgar as the bantamweight feels that he won their respective match-up. Check out his statement.

Pedro Munhoz is not happy with the decision made last weekend.

In the main event of UFC Vegas 7, the bantamweight fought Frankie Edgar in a five-round war that ultimately saw the former UFC Lightweight Champion squeeze out a victory via split decision. Many feel that the fight could’ve gone either way, but to Munhoz, his match-up against Edgar should’ve resulted in a win.

On social media, the top ranked bantamweight aired his grievances over the result and demanded that he receives a rematch against the 38-year-old:

I’ve always done my talking in the octagon but this needs to be said. I work too hard to get screwed by poor judges who have no training and even less accountability. Look at the stats and the damage. Look at the 17 of 20 media sites who agreed I won, 7 of which had it 49-46. Tell me how the deciding judge gave round 3 to Frankie. He’s a legend, but I won that fight and want a rematch now @danawhite 🇧🇷 Sempre falei dentro do octógono, nas minhas atitudes, mas isso precisa ser dito. Eu trabalho muito para ser prejudicado por juízes ruins que não têm treinamento e ainda menos responsabilidade. Veja as estatísticas e os danos. Veja os 17 dos 20 sites de mídia que concordaram que eu ganhei, 7 dos quais tinham 49-46. Diga-me como o juiz decidiu ter dado o terceiro round para o Frankie. Ele é uma lenda, mas ganhei essa luta e quero uma revanche agora @ufc

Thus far, White hasn’t responded to Munhoz’s request. Edgar officially bumped the bantamweight from the No. 5 spot in the division and could likely end up fighting Marlon Moraes, Cory Sandhagen, or Aljamain Sterling.

As for Munhoz, the 33-year-old is currently riding a two-fight losing streak, though he’s still in the top 10 in the division rankings. If a rematch is shot down by Edgar and White, then the Brazilian still has plenty of opportunities to reach the No. 1 spot of the division.
