UFC Fight Night 66 features a main event that many are calling a super fight between Frankie Edgar and Uriah Faber.

Edgar is coming into the fight on a three-fight win streak since his last loss to Jose Aldo for the belt. He is trying to show that by beating Faber, he is still one of the best fighters in the world.

Faber is coming into the fight on a two-fight win streak since his last loss to Renan Barao for the belt. Faber is a fan favorite and with a win over someone like Edgar, Faber will show that he still has it.

Both fighters’ last loss has been in a title fight and both fighters are the real deal. They both have been champions, Faber in the WEC and Edgar in the UFC, and they both have fought in even bigger fights in their careers.

Other notable fights:

#7 Gegard Mousasi vs. #12 Costas Philippou

Mark Munoz vs. Luke Barnatt

Hyun Gyu Lim vs. #15 Neil Magny

Mark Eddiva vs. Levan Makashvili

Li Jingliang vs. Dhiego Lima

Here are my predictions for the Fight Night bonuses:

Fight of the Night:

Whenever you have Edgar or Faber in a fight, you can always say that the fight could be great, but if you have both of them in the fight, you can write that up for Fight of the Night. I believe this fight will be amazing and will treat the fans that have been waiting for it. I think Edgar wins the fight, but Faber will make sure it is not easy. This fight is going to be great and earn the Fight of the Night bonus.

Performance of the Night:

This one may be a random prediction for some, but I think Levan Makashvili will earn a big KO victory on Saturday. I have seen Levan fight for the CFFC and I think that he will do big things in his UFC debut and earn himself a Performance of the Night bonus.

My other prediction for the Performance of the Night is for Dhiego Lima. Lima lost to Eddie Gordon in TUF finale and has not really put it all together in the UFC, but I think Saturday is the day he starts to. I think he will put on a show and earn himself a Performance of the Night bonus.
