Edgar (18-4-1) is the former UFC Lightweight champion that has spent his past handful of fights at featherweight. He is on a three-fight win streak right now against some of the top 145-pounders in the UFC. Faber (32-7) is a former 145-pound champion in the WEC, but he has never held gold in the UFC. He has spent the past few years fighting at 135 pounds and is moving back up in weight for this chance to fight Edgar.

The latest odds according to the latest oddsmakers, Edgar as the favorite in this fight, as he has a money line of -450 to win, while Faber has been given odds of +325 to prevail. This fight will be the main event of UFC Fight Night today at 10AM ET. The event takes place from the Mall of Asia Arena and air live on Fox Sports 1.

This fight should be very entertaining, as both men possess great speed and quickness and are well-rounded fighters. Each is able to mix up quick striking combinations and takedowns. Both are also well conditioned, so neither should gas while attempting to go 25 minutes if needed. Faber tends to be a quick starter, while Edgar seems to get better as the fight moves along. If Faber can jump out quickly, there will be an opening for him to get the upset. However, Edgar is a veteran fighter that will stay patient and stick to his game, which should be enough to counter Faber’s speed. Edgar should have the size and strength advantage in the fight as well, which will be important if it goes 25 minutes.
