With a dominant win over Cub Swanson at UFC Fight Night 57, Frankie Edgar is back in the running for a shot at featherweight champion Jose Aldo. Although Edgar has only made three appearances since losing to Aldo in February 2013, he's stopped Swanson and BJ Penn in back-to-back outings. The Answer also arguably came closer to dethroning Aldo than any other UFC title challenger. Could this victory over Swanson be enough to get Edgar back into the pound-for-pound rankings? Here are the latest off read news >>

Frankie Edgar's demolition of Cub Swanson on Saturday night may bring us back to the inevitable fork in the road. Edgar, based on beating Swanson, and he did far more than just beat him, should be the top contender for Jose Aldo's featherweight title. That is, if decisions on who gets title shots are based on what one has proven inside the cage. Conor McGregor should be the top contender for Aldo based on the ability to make people interested in seeing a fight. The decisions in these circumstanc read news >>

So ... where does Cub go from here? Another action-packed weekend of fisticuffs has come and gone, as UFC Fight Night 57 went down this past Saturday night (Nov. 22, 2014) from Austin, Texas. Plenty of fighters were left licking their wounds, including Bobby Green, who lost a unanimous decision to Edson Barboza in the co-main event of the evening (highlights). And Brad Pickett, who lost his second straight fight inside the Octagon at the hands of Chico Camus (video). But which fighter is sufferi read news >>

While Conor McGregor and Cub Swanson debated who had the better right to next face UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar was a forgotten third wheel. Unfortunately for Swanson, and maybe Edgar, the former champ only got to fight once Saturday night in Austin. With Edgar crushing his title hopes over the course of five rounds, Swanson sounded blindsided speaking to FOX Sports post-fight in Texas.

"Obviously, it was super frustrating, but he did what he had to do, and he exposed me. I was super confident. I thought I prepared, and obviously I underprepared. I want to thank him for the lesson. I'm going to be better. I took this fight because I felt he was one of the best in the world at a lower weight class, and I wanted to test myself. I'm getting up there in age, and I wanted to see how 'bad' I am. I know I took a beating, but I was still hopeful all the way to the end. If you want to b read news >>

It's clear Cub Swanson's takedown defense still needs some work. Frankie Edgar dominated him with excellent wrestling skills en route to a last-second submission win in the fifth round. Per MMA Junkie, Edgar said he would take Swanson's title shot, and he seemed to have done just that. He maintained top position for much of the bout and subsequently eliminated Swanson's striking prowess. From top position, Edgar rained down elbows and punches in a one-sided beatdown. By the time the fight was ov read news >>

Frankie Edgar knew he needed to make a statement on Saturday night, and he did just that, blowing the doors off Cub Swanson to stop the streaking featherweight contender in his tracks in UFC Fight Night 57's main event. Swanson entered the bout with a standing promise from UFC officials that his six-fight win streak would get cashed in for a title shot against reigning 145-pound champion Jose Aldo if he toppled Edgar, but in the former lightweight titleholder, he he met an immoveable force.

But will he get his way? Cub Swanson had previously been in line to fight Jose Aldo for the featherweight title, assuming he could get past Frankie Edgar in the main event of UFC Fight Night 57 last night (Sat., Nov. 22, 2014) at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas.
