UFC Fight Night 57 is headlined by a featherweight bout that could determine who is next in line to challenge champion Jose Aldo as former challenger Frankie Edgar will take on Cub Swanson. This bout is scheduled for five, five-minute rounds.
The event goes down at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. All fighters made weight on their first attempt.
Two female strawweights will make their debuts in the UFC as Kailin Curran and Paige VanZant stand across the octagon with one another on the preliminary card available on UFC Fight Pass beginning at 7 p.m.
Josh Copeland and Ruslan Magomedov head the Fox Sports 1 preliminary card that begins at 8 p.m.
Matt Wiman was the first fighter in a long time to step on the scale wearing tighty whities. Not sure why we felt we had to mention that.
Below are the results from today’s weigh-ins.
