UFC Atlantic City Kevin Lee Edson Barboza

Round One: The round begins with the fighters swinging away at each other, Cummins grabs Anderson and he gets him against the cage wall. Unlike the first time they met, Edgar was unable to finish Swanson, which he did near the end of the fifth round in their previous meeting and won by unanimous decision (30-27 on all cards). Fans who were cheering for Miller, groaned when the replay was shown on the giant screens. Barboza is coming off a loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov last December. People know what time it is. "It's Khabib time, baby". "He's feeling himself and he's still got that imaginary '0' and my motivation is to give him that '1' and I hope he doesn't run into anybody who's gonna do it before me". Lee controlled most of the game in the fourth round scoring the takedown and deliver damage on the ground. The fight appeared nearly over in a few instances in the first round. Frankie is determined to get that title shot back, and like his manager, Ali Abdelaziz said, "now we have a dangerous Frankie Edgar". Edgar had some success with his leg kicks as Swanson looked to counter. Even though he didn't succeed in getting his hand raised, it was a step forward for the division. Lee, meanwhile, saw a five-fight winning streak snapped in October when he was submitted by current interim champion Tony Ferguson at UFC 216. Instead, Edgar suffered a knockout loss to Brian Ortega in a title eliminator bout. "I feel like I'm the best all-around fighter in the division". "I wanted to go out there and show it".

Barboza opens round three with a couple of really nice body kicks. Swanson landed a combination of punches, but Edgar landed one of his own.

Back then, he was an unbeaten lightweight making his name in the UFC and leading off a pay-per-view card in just his ninth professional fight.

-Frankie Edgar def. Cub Swanson via unanimous decision.

"I love you guys".

Following the win, Edgar said that he hoped to face the winner of the next featherweight championship fight.

Lee's statement was received loud and clear, not by his typical "Motown Phenom" swagger, but by the outright skills and will that he enforced to dominate one of the UFC's best strikers ranking 2nd in KO's and Knockdowns in the division. After breaking out of a clinch, the referee called for the doctors to inspect the injury, who decided Barboza should not continue.

"I hear they going to Russia in September so I'm going to be making a call to uncle Dana [White]".

Hooker called out Paul Felder for a fight to his face - Felder is a Philly fighter who moonlighted Saturday as an announcer. He continued to dominate the grappling exchanges but Barboza was able to survive the round.
