Under the leadership of former two-division champion BJ Penn, four rising UFC stars will compete for the public’s endorsement to become the next face of Edge Shave Gel.

“Every fighter has a dream to make it big, and he knows he can get there if he only gets the right edge,” said BJ Penn. “I know what it’s like to work for a shot at glory, so I’m excited to work with these four guys to help them make it in the UFC as part of ‘Team Edge,’ and I encourage all UFC fans to go online and vote for who’s ready to achieve greatness.”

Here are the up-and-coming stars vying for your attention:
