Frankie Edgar vs. Cub Swanson: Legit Full-Fight Video Highlights

Did you not feel like staying up until 1 a.m. to watch Frankie Edgar fight Cub Swanson at UFC Fight Night 57?

There’s good news for you: There exists legitimate (and, most importantly, LEGAL) footage of the fight’s best parts.

Edgar beat Swanson to the punch throughout their five-round affair last night. He also beat him to the takedown, too, dragging Swanson to the mat and smashing him with ground and pound (as much as a 145-pound man can smash someone, at least). In the fifth round, Edgar managed to submit Swanson via rear naked choke with only four seconds remaining. This was arguably Edgar’s finest performance to date — a fight so one-sided the word “fight” really isn’t appropriate. Use “ass-kicking” or, if you’re a language-sensitive baby, “shellacking” instead.

Edgar wants a title shot off the back of such an amazing performance, which is hard to disagree with since he really did look that good. Though, with the way the UFC works, we’re sure Conor McGregor will get one when he finished trouncing Denis Siver at UFC fight Night 59 in January.

There were some other fights last night featuring the likes of Joseph Benavidez, Edson Barboza, Isaac Vallie-Flagg, and Yves Edwards — though our favorite fight was BY FAR Oleksiy Oliynyk vs. Jared Rosholt (Ruslan Magomedov vs. Josh Copeland was pretty good, too). See how they all fared below:
