Join The MMA Corner’s Josh Davis, José Youngs and Jason Schielke as they break down and give their predictions for UFC Fight Night 57, which is set to take place this Saturday at Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas

The main event is set to feature a featherweight battle between former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and the red-hot Cub Swanson. While nothing is official, the winner of this matchup could very well be named the new number one contender for Jose Aldo’s title at 145-pounds.

Edgar (17-4-1) is coming off a very dominant fourth round TKO victory over mixed martial arts legend B.J. Penn in the main event of The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale. Prior to this win, ‘The Answer’ earned a decision victory in his 145-pound debut against Charles Olivera in the co-main event of UFC 162 in July 2013. The New Jersey native had previously reigned supreme atop the 155-pounds division for a little more than two years before dropping the belt to former champion Benson Henderson. He will enter this bout with a UFC record of 11-4-1.

Swanson (21-5) enters this bout riding an incredible six-fight winning streak, with three of these wins coming by way of knockout. In his most previous outing, the Jackson-Winkeljohn product earned a decision victory over Jeremy Stephens in the main event of UFC Fight Night 44 in June. He will enter this bout with a UFC record of 6-1.

Here is how the rest of the card looks:
