UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs. Swanson (also known as UFC Fight Night 57) was a mixed martial arts event held at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, on November 22, 2014.[2]

Background[edit]

The event was the second that the organization had hosted in Austin, following UFC Fight Night 22 in 2010.[2]

The card was headlined by a Featherweight bout between Cub Swanson and Frankie Edgar.[3]

A bout between Paige VanZant and Kailin Curran, briefly linked to UFC Fight Night: MacDonald vs. Saffiedine, was rescheduled after VanZant suffered a minor injury and took place at this event.[4]
