By FCF Staff
Frankie Edgar added yet another, memorable victory to his record at UFC Fight Night 57, and the featherweight contender picked up a “Performance of the Night” as a result.
Edgar outwrestled and outscored Cub Swanson throughout their main event bout, before he finished the fight with a late, fifth round neck crank. The former lightweight champ collected an extra $50,000 with the award.
The other “POTN” went to heavyweight Oleksiy Oliynyk, who KO’d Jared Rosholt with a brutal left hook and follow up shots in round one.
“Fight of the Night” went to strawweights Paige Vanzant and Kailin Curran for their entertaining bout, which saw Vanzant win it via third round, stoppage.
UFC FN 57 was hosted by Austin’s Frank Erwin Center.
