Read on to explore more about Frankie Edgar and Cub Swanson who meet this Saturday for UFC Fight Night-Edgar Vs Swanson
This weekend the UFC ventures to Austin Texas for the second time in its History with (at least on paper) a very intriguing and entertaining fight card.
former UFC light weight champion Frankie Edgar headlines the card against another of the divisions top contender Cub Swanson in what promises to be a furious bout of action.
It marks a high profile bout with the winner looking likely to be awarded that elusive title shot. Although there is much speculation that it will be Connor McGregor who will receive the shot should he beat Dennis Siver in January, its hard to see what other option the winner of this Saturdays bout will have.
Swanson is going into the fight having won his last 6 bouts against some legitimate foe in the division. He is one of the toughest warriors in the division which he has more than proved. With very slick boxing skills and crazy KO power for his size he is a formidable opponent for anyone. Swanson also has an incredible belief in himself which is always a very dangerous attribute for an opponent. Its almost as if it adds another layer of toughness one has to break down in order to beat him…..and he’s already one tough guy.
If there is one man who can beat him its definitely Frankie Edgar. A huge fan favourite, the Jersey native accumulated a huge fan base during his light weight domination as an undersized man who defeated all who was put in front of him until he was crowned champ. He has a high level skill set across all facets of the MMA game and possess arguably the best footwork in UFC. It was an attribute that made him so successful fighting bigger opponents as his slick in and out movements made him a near impossible target to hit. Former Bantam weight Dominick Cruz might be the only man who has footwork to rival that of Edgar.
This Saturdays bout promises to be an action packed main event with both men capable of ending the bout quickly. Tune in this Saturday to find out who will take one step closer to fighting for that elusive UFC strap.
