The Ultimate Fighting Championship on Saturday touches down for a long-awaited show in the Philippines with a solid offering on Fox Sports 1. In the main event, Frankie Edgar takes on Urijah Faber in a dream matchup of lighter-weight fighters that has been discussed and desired for years. That fight alone makes the card worth watching.

Underneath the main event, things drop off, but the card still contains a number of intriguing fights. Gegard Mousasi meets Costa Philippou in an intriguing middleweight co-headliner; Mark Munoz draws Luke Barnatt in the former NCAA wrestling champion’s retirement fight; and the bout between Neil Magny and Hyun Gyu Lim is a “Fight of the Night” waiting to happen. The rest of the card features a few intriguing prospects, namely Levan Makashvili and Yui Chul Nam, but only the most dedicated fans will find much of interest on the undercard.
