On Saturday, November 22nd the UFC held UFC Fight Night 57: Edgar vs. Swanson from the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas.

In the main event of the evening Cub Swanson stepped into the Octagon looking to stamp his ticket to title town but Frankie Edgar had other plans. Edgar took Swanson to the mat early and often and dominated the surging fighter. Edgar was relentless with his attack and he didn’t quit late in the fifth even though he had the fight won.
