On Friday, May 15, the UFC will host the weigh-ins for UFC Fight Night 66: Edgar vs. Faber which takes place Saturday, May 16, from the SM Mall of Asia Arena inPasay, Philippines.
In the night’s main event, former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar welcomes former WEC titleholder Urijah Faber back to the featherweight division. The two veterans will look to build on their current winning streaks and make a case for title contention. The 33-year-old Edgar has won three straight since falling short in his 145-pound title bid against Jose Aldo. Faber, meanwhile, has been plying his trade at bantamweight, where’s he’s racked up back-to-back submission wins over Alex Caceres and Francisco Rivera.
The co-main event features former Strikeforce light heavyweight kingpin Gegard Mousasi against TUF alum Costas Philippou in a middleweight clash. The 29-year-old Mousasi got back in the win column in January with a 70-second demolition of Dan Henderson in Sweden. Philippou has been out of action since last May, when he stopped Lorenz Larkin with strikes.
The 12-fight event kicks off Saturday with two preliminary card bouts streaming on UFC Fight Pass at 7 a.m. ET. Four additional prelims follow at 8 a.m. ET on Fox Sports, with the six-fight main card airing live at 10 a.m. ET, also on Fox Sports 1.
