Pedro Munhoz v Frankie Edgar: Who is Favourite in the UFC on ESPN Main Event?    

Both fighters are coming into this bout on the back of losses and will be keen to get back on track in the bantamweight division.

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.

A first round knockout for Munhoz can be backed at 9/2 and is the shortest odds you’ll find in the Method & Round market, with Paddy Power expecting a similar fight.

Edgar can be backed at 2/1 to win the fight with Betfred, but he’s lost three of his last four bouts and is generally unfancied for this one by the media.

Our UFC on ESPN: Munhoz v Edgar Predictions 

It’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.
