Cub Swanson vs. Frankie Edgar 2 headed to UFC-Atlantic City *POLL*

Cub Swanson isn’t going anywhere, and in his next test after re-signing with the UFC, he’ll take on a former champion once again.

Swanson (25-8 MMA, 10-4 UFC) is set to meet Frankie Edgar (22-6-1 MMA, 16-6-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 128 next month in Edgar’s home state of New Jersey, a person with knowledge of the situation told MMAjunkie. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the UFC has yet to announce the booking. Bout agreements for the matchup were sent to the fighters today.

The news first was reported by ESPN.com.

UFC Fight Night 128 will take place April 21 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. The event will air on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Swanson and Edgar first met in the UFC Fight Night 57 main event in Austin, Texas, more than three years ago. In that fight, Edgar won with a neck crank submission with just four seconds left in the five-round featherweight matchup.

In the fight right after that, Swanson was submitted by current 145-pound champion Max Holloway for a second straight setback – the only time he’s had back-to-back losses in his career. After that, Swanson went on a four-fight run with unanimous decision wins over Hacran Dias, Tatsuya Kawajiri, Dooho Choi and Artem Lobov.

But in December in the UFC Fight Night 123 main event, he suffered a submission loss to upcoming title challenger Brian Ortega. Despite the setback, it was Swanson’s third straight “Fight of the Night” performance. It also was the last fight on his deal, but a booking against Edgar means Swanson will be staying put in the UFC after a brief flirtation with free agency.

Edgar is coming off a stoppage loss to Ortega, as well. In the UFC 222 co-main event earlier this month, Ortega knocked him out with 16 seconds left in the first round. It was the first knockout loss of Edgar’s lengthy career and first time he has been stopped, period.

Prior to that loss, the former lightweight champ had back-to-back wins over Jeremy Stephens at UFC 205 and Yair Rodriguez at UFC 211 to get back on track after a UFC 200 loss to Jose Aldo for the interim featherweight title.

With the addition, the latest UFC Fight Night 128 card includes:

Edson Barboza vs. Kevin Lee
Corey Anderson vs. Patrick Cummins
David Branch vs. Thiago “Marreta” Santos
Alex Garcia vs. Ryan LaFlare
Brett Johns vs. Aljamain Sterling
Dan Hooker vs. Jim Miller
Magomed Bibulatov vs. Ulka Sasaki
Siyar Bahadurzada vs. Luan Chagas
Tony Martin vs. Keita Nakamura
Merab Dvalishvili vs. Augusto Mendes
Aspen Ladd vs. Leslie Smith
Uriah Hall vs. opponent TBA
Chase Sherman vs. Justin Willis
Frankie Edgar vs. Cub Swanson

Yes. Everything under 6 months after a KO like that will definitely affect his chin.

Neither did Michael Bisping after GSP fight... I guess it is kind of manly thing, to prove your self and others it was a fluke and you still got it. We'll see.
Oh yes, this brings my memories back to Mendes vs Edgar, after Mendes being tkoed by McGregor. I don't know.

Wonder what type of brain scan he did, probably just asked Edgar how he felt and if he had a headache or had to puke, before sending him home with a no-contact medical suspension for a couple weeks.
Do you think Edgar would tell the doc if he had a headache? :lol:

But hey if he wants to fight let him fight, it’s a very stupid thing to do though with 0 upsides, other than getting paid sooner and restoring one’s confidence by getting a W again soon.
