By: Mike Bohn, MMA Junkie
"The UFC returned to Texas for the third and final time this year with Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 57 event at Frank Erwin Center in Austin.
It was a solid event headlined by a significant featherweight matchup between top contenders Frankie Edgar (17-4-1 MMA, 11-4-1 UFC) and Cub Swanson (21-6 MMA, 6-2 UFC). It wasn’t much of a fight, though, as Edgar steamrolled Swanson for four rounds before stopping the fight in the fifth.
"Prior to that, Edson Barboza (15-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC), Chico Camus (14-5 MMA, 3-2 UFC), Joseph Benavidez (21-4 MMA, 8-2 UFC) and Matt Wiman (16-7 MMA, 10-5 UFC) all picked up decision wins while Alexey Oliynyk (50-9-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) earned the only main card finish outside of the headliner.
"After every event, fans wonder whom the winners will be matched up with next. And with another night of UFC action in the rearview mirror, it’s time to look forward, put on a pair of Joe Silva’s and Sean Shelby’s shoes, and play UFC matchmaker."
