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.

The UFC is live in Austin, Texas, tonight with a lineup of crowd-pleasing fighters and a featherweight main event that could maybe produce the next title challenger, particularly if Conor McGregor isn’t available.

Frankie Edgar vs. Cub Swanson Set as UFC Fight Night 57 Main Event in Austin

The UFC announced last night that a match between featherweight contenders Frankie Edgar and Cub Swanson will headline UFC Fight Night 57, November 22nd at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, TX. With both fighters in the top three according to the UFC’s rankings*, the winner could earn a title shot with an impressive performance.

Edgar has won his last two 145-pound appearances, most recently beating BJ Penn into retirement at the TUF 19 Finale in July. Swanson has won a solid six in a row, earning Fight of the Night bonuses for his last two wins against Dennis Siver and Jeremy Stevens.

UFC Fight Night 57 will also feature a lightweight bout between Bobby Green and Edson Barboza in the co-main event spot. The current lineup is after the jump…

* Lukewarm take: Frankie Edgar’s 2-1 record at featherweight shouldn’t put him close to the top five. I know that he was a former lightweight champ, and we all love Frankie, but his #3 ranking is inflated as hell. Dennis Bermudez is riding the longest win streak in UFC featherweight history and he’s all the way down at #7. What’s up with that, approved members of the UFC ranking body? And don’t give me any bullshit about “strength of schedule”: Edgar outpointed Charles Oliveira (okay) and smashed a totally depleted BJ Penn, and he’s #3? PUPPYPOOPING.JPG.
