Pedro Munhoz is being backed as the favourite with the bookies, with Paddy Power pricing him at 4/11 to get the win.
The 33-year-old lost by a unanimous decision last time out but is a powerful fighter that has stopped his opponents twice in his last three fights in the first round.

Our UFC on ESPN: Munhoz v Edgar PredictionsIt’s expected that we’ll see a comfortable victory for Pedro Munhoz in the early hours of Sunday morning, although his training will have been hampered following being tested positive for COVID-19 a little over a month ago.
That said, he’ll be keen to bounce back following defeat last time out and the knockout at 6/4 with VBet would be where we’d look to in this one.
Half of his wins have come via submission though, which could be worth considering at 11/2, but the power he’ll show early should be enough to end the fight in the opening rounds.
Our punt, as noted above would be a first round knockout, which is priced at 10/3, while you can back a round two knockout at 8/1, if you believe Edgar will hold on to see out a round.
If you’re looking for an upset, Edgar by decision is likely your best bet there at 7/2 with Paddy Power, but it really is difficult to see past Munhoz in this one.
