Pedro Munhoz plans to make Aljamain Sterling pay for PED comments

Pedro Munhoz loss to Frankie Edgar: ” I won that fight and want a rematch now”

Pedro Munhoz does not agree with the judge’s and wants to run it back with Frankie Edgar.

In the main event of UFC Vegas 7, Munhoz was welcoming the former UFC lightweight champion to the bantamweight division It was a really intriguing matchup with Edgar being a sizeable underdog. Yet, that didn’t matter as when the fight went the full 25 minutes it was Edgar getting his hand raised by split decision.

For Pedro Munhoz, he does not agree with the judge’s decision and hopes to get an immediate rematch. For most media, they had Munhoz winning the fight either 4-1 or 3-2. Yet, the fight was so close, having Edgar win is by no means a robbery.

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

With the loss to Frankie Edgar, Pedro Munhoz is now on a two-fight losing streak. This was his first fight in over a year after dropping a decision to Aljamain Sterling last June at UFC 238. Before the skid, the Brazilian was on a three-fight winning streak, which included the massive KO win over Cody Garbrandt.

Frankie Edgar, meanwhile, snapped his losing streak and has now won fights in three different weight classes. With the win, he is likely only a win or two away from earning a bantamweight title shot. So, it is unlikely the future UFC Hall of Famer will have any interest in running it back with Munhoz right away.
