Frankie Edgar will throw down with Urijah Faber this weekend at UFC Fight Night 66, and if the decorated fighter scores an impressive win, he very well could lock up a title shot.
After all, the former lightweight champ is coming off impressive wins over BJ Penn, Charles Oliveira and Cub Swanson now, since he was decisioned by featherweight champ Jose Aldo in 2013. The 33 year-old is currently sitting in the #2 spot at 145.
In keeping with that theme, the UFC has released a video segment titled “Frankie Edgar – Running For Gold“, which you can watch below.
Faber is returning to 145 after scoring back-to-back wins over Alex Caceres and Francisco Rivera.
UFC FN 66 will take place in Manila, Philippines.
