Edgar-Swanson 2 added to Atlantic City event

 

Two of the UFC's most respected warriors will meet for a second time on April 21, as Frankie Edgar battles Cub Swanson in the UFC Fight Night co-main event at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall.

The featherweight matchup is a rematch of a 2014 showdown won by Edgar via fifth-round submission.

In the UFC Fight Night main event, which airs live on FS1, Edson Barboza takes on Kevin Lee in a meeting of lightweight contenders. Tickets are on sale now.

The fighting pride of Toms River, New Jersey, former lightweight champion Edgar has not fought in the Garden State since defeating Spencer Fisher in November 2007, making this a homecoming over 10 years in the making. And after winning seven of his last nine, Edgar is eager to get back into the title conversation by beating Swanson, who is 4-1 in his last five bouts, a stretch that includes Fight of the Night wins over Dooho Choi and Artem Lobov.
