On Saturday, Nov. 22, the UFC hosted UFC Fight Night 57: Edgar vs. Swanson from the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas.

In the night’s main event, former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar looked to earn another crack at featherweight gold as he took on the hard-hitting Cub Swanson. Edgar entered the contest riding the momentum of back-to-back wins over B.J. Penn and Charles Oliveira. Swanson, meanwhile, stepped into the Octagon as one of the hottest fighters in the division. The 31-year-old had reeled off six straight wins, including four by some form of knockout.

The co-main event featured a lightweight contest between Bobby Green and Brazilian Edson Barboza. The Strikeforce veteran Green had yet to taste defeat in the Octagon and rode an eight-fight winning streak into the bout. Barboza rebounded from just the second loss of his career with a dominant TKO win over Evan Dunham in July.

The 12-fight event kicked off Saturday with two fights streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 7 p.m. ET. Four additional preliminary card bouts followed on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the six-fight main card airing live at 10 p.m. ET, also on Fox Sports 1.
