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.
The event went down at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas and this Nov. 22, bout was scheduled for five, five-minute rounds and Edgar would finish the fight with just four seconds left on the 25-minute affair. Unbelievable.
Two female strawweights made their debuts in the UFC as Kailin Curran and Paige VanZant stood across the octagon with one another on the preliminary card available on UFC Fight Pass. VanZant had an impressive third rounds TKO stoppage over her opponent.
Josh Copeland and Ruslan Magomedov head the Fox Sports 1 preliminary card that begins at 8 p.m.
