Top-ranked UFC featherweight Frankie “The Answer” Edgar made a strong case for a championship rematch with champion Jose Aldo by demolishing No. 2 Cub Swanson in the main event of tonight’s (Sat., November 22, 2014) UFC Fight Night 57 from Austin, Texas.
“The Answer” picked up the latest finish in UFC history with a fifth round submission of the always-tough Swanson. With the win, Edgar also scored his first consecutive finish wins in eight years.
It’s tough to say if he’ll get another bout against Aldo, whom Edgar lost a close decision to at UFC 156 in February 2013. Conor McGregor may get that shot if he gets by Dennis Siver at January 18’s UFC Fight Night 59, but Edgar is undoubtedly knocking on the door.
