A featherweight number one contender’s bout will headline December’s TUF 22 Finale event in Las Vegas, as UFC officials announced that Frankie Edgar and Chad Mendes will square off on December 11.
Frankie Edgar (19-4-1 MMA) will be looking to extend his current win streak at five in a row when he faces “Money” in Sin City. “The Answer” was most recently seen in action at May’s UFC Fight Night 66 event, where he earned a unanimous decision victory over former WEC champ Urijah Faber. Prior to that, Edgar had posted victories over Cub Swanson, Charles Oliveira and MMA legend B.J. Penn respectively.
Meanwhile, Chad Mendes (17-3 MMA) will be looking to rebound, this after suffering a TKO loss to Conor McGregor at July’s UFC 189 event in Las Vegas. Prior to the setback, “Money” was coming off a first-round TKO victory over former title challenger Ricardo Lamas.
The TUF 22 Finale event will take place December 11 in Las Vegas. No venue for the event has been named at this time.
