The UFC’s first trip to the Philippines has its main event, and it’s a pretty, pretty, promising fight.
Edgar (18-4-1) will be looking to extend his winning streak to four. The #1 ranked featherweight has scored wins over BJ Penn, Charles Oliveira and Cub Swanson, since he was decisioned by champ Jose Aldo.
Faber (32-7), on the other hand, is coming off victories over Alex Caceres and Francisco Rivera, after he was stopped by now former, bantamweight champ Renan Barao.
“The California Kid” hasn’t fought at 145 since 2010, when he was outgunned by Aldo at WEC 48 and lost via UD.
UFC FN 65 will go down at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, Philippines.
