UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs. Swanson viewing and schedule guide

BY Damon Martin • November 16, 2014

Two of the best featherweights in the world square off this weekend in Austin, Texas as former UFC champion Frankie Edgar looks to pick up his third win in a row as he faces surging contender Cub Swanson in the five round main event that may crown the next contender to face champion Jose Aldo.

Edgar is fresh off a dominant stoppage victory over B.J. Penn in July, while Swanson looks to improve on a six-fight win streak with five of those coming by way of knockout or TKO.

Also on the card, Bobby Green will try to keep his undefeated streak in the UFC alive as he faces one of the most dangerous strikers at 155-pounds, Edson Barboza, in the co-main event.
