UFC Fight Night 66 Frankie Edgar vs Urijah Faber full fight video preview

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Frankie Edgar is about to do battle with ex-World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) featherweight kingpin Urijah Faber in the UFC Fight Night 66 main event later today (Sat., May 16, 2015) on FOX Sports 1 from inside SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, Philippines.

Since coming up short against division champion Jose Aldo at UFC 156 back in early 2013, Edgar (18-4-1) has reeled of three consecutive wins in his new home, including a dominant victory over Cub Swanson at UFC Fight Night 57 last November.

And after getting passed over for a rematch against "Junior" in favor of Conor McGregor, "The Answer" looks to lock up his status as the next title challenger with a win over "The California Kid."

Faber (32-7) has been competing at bantamweight for the past four years. Despite his success in the lower weight class, "The California Kid" failed to find gold in three attempts. Currently on a two-fight win streak at 135 pounds, a big win in Manila might compel him to hang around for another run at 145.

Check out the "Edgar vs. Faber" fight video preview below:
