The UFC’s fully packed event calendar isn’t about to stop any time soon. Unfortunately, with a busy 2020 in full swing, not every card is can look like a winner on paper. The main event of this week’s Fight Night promises to be a fascinating bantamweight contest between Pedro Munhoz and former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar. After that? The pickings get pretty damn slim.
