On Saturday, April 21, the UFC hosted UFC Fight Night 128: Barboza vs. Lee from Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J.

In the night’s main event, Brazilian Edson Barboza clashed with former interim lightweight title challenger Kevin Lee. Barboza entered the contest looking to rebound from a decision loss to current champion Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 219 in December. Lee, meanwhile, saw a five-fight winning streak snapped in October when he was submitted by current interim champion Tony Ferguson at UFC 216.

Also on the card, former lightweight titleholder Frankie Edgar aimed to get back into contention at 145 pounds as rematched Cub Swanson.

The action kicked off at 7:30 p.m. ET with one bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary-card bouts followed on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the six-fight main card taking place at 10 p.m. ET, also on Fox Sports 1.
