Coming out of a fairly entertaining UFC 252 event, the UFC will go back to their weekly smaller shows run out of UFC Apex. The first will come on August 22nd on ESPN, with a bantamweight fight on top.

The main event will see Frankie Edgar finally making his debut at bantamweight after a few hiccups prevented earlier matchups. The former lightweight champ will face off with someone already in the 135-pound mix - Pedro Munhoz.

This card has taken quite a beating in terms of COVID and injuries, which has led to a few short notice replacements and fights being moved to other cards. After the dust settled, the card was left with a co-main event between Ovince Saint Preux and Alonzo Menifield.

Here’s a look at the current card for the event:
