Frankie Edgar showed he’s still got plenty of tread left on his tires on Saturday when he beat Pedro Munhoz in the UFC on ESPN 15 main event.

Edgar (24-8-1 MMA, 18-8-1 UFC) made his long-awaited debut in the bantamweight division against an established contender in Munhoz (18-5 MMA, 8-5 UFC) and took home a split-decision win at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

The former UFC lightweight champion was not able to claim a second belt during a 13-fight stint at featherweight, but now he’s down at 135 pounds where many believe he should’ve been all along. The question remains, though, at 38, is it too late?

“The Answer” gave a strong account of himself in beating Munhoz, and now he’s on the right track for another high-profile fight in his new division. Perhaps fellow former champ Dominick Cruz (22-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) would be a good fit.
