Frankie Edgar vs. Cub Swanson: Legit Full-Fight Video Highlights

Did you not feel like staying up until 1 a.m. to watch Frankie Edgar fight Cub Swanson at UFC Fight Night 57? There's good news for you: There exists legitimate (and, most importantly, LEGAL) footage of the fight's best parts. Edgar beat Swanson to the punch throughout their five-round affair last night. He also beat him to the takedown, too, dragging Swanson to the mat and smashing him with ground and pound (as much as a 145-pound man can smash someone, at least). In the fifth round, Edgar managed to submit Swanson via rear naked choke with only four seconds remaining. This was arguably Edgar's finest performance to date — a fight so one-sided the word "fight" really isn't appropriate. Use "ass-kicking" or, if you're a language-sensitive baby, "shellacking" instead. Get the card's full results after the jump.

UFC Fight Night 57: Edgar vs. Swanson — Main Card Results & Commentary

The UFC is live in Austin, Texas, tonight with a lineup of crowd-pleasing fighters and a featherweight main event that could maybe produce the next title challenger, particularly if Conor McGregor isn't available. On tonight's menu: Frankie Edgar vs. Cub Swanson in the headliner spot, with a side order of Bobby Green vs. Edson Barboza, and a light dusting of Joseph Benavidez, Brad Pickett, and Jared Rosholt. Should be pretty okay. The UFC Fight Night 57 main card kicks off on FOX Sports 1 at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT, and our old friend Matt Kaplan will be stickin' round-by-round results after the jump.

Josh Koscheck Returns To The Octagon At UFC 184 Against Neil Magny

(Josh Koscheck deep in thought. / Photo via Getty) Josh Koscheck will look to avoid being a stepping-stone for the rising Neil Magny when both welterweights collide at UFC 184, according to MMA Junkie. The Fresno-based fighter, who began a stint as an analyst on FOX Sports 1 and gave our children nightmares on the first day of the job, will be returning from a year of inactivity and mumblings of retirement based on remarks made by Dana White after the former welterweight title challenger was knocked out by Tyron Woodley at UFC 167. It was his second back-to-back knockout loss, falling at the hands of Robbie Lawler before that at UFC 157 back in February 2013. “Kos” is in dire need of a win if he wants to resume fighting, riding a three-fight losing streak. If he topples his opponent in Los Angeles, Calif., it would be his first victory in two years.

MMA is Horrible: Jon Jones Defends Disgraced Bill Cosby

This week on MMA is Horrible, we have UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones defending Bill Cosby — a man 13 women have accused of rape. TMZ found Jon Jones in Los Angeles and asked for his thoughts on the matter: What'd he do? He raped somebody, right? Nah. I don't think Bill Cosby would do that. I've never met him but from what I've seen, he seems to be a class act. I kinda grew up admiring him as a black actor and I really hope that's not true. I mean, he's Bill Cosby, he shouldn't have to take it. They should be [does a gesture insinuating women should throw themselves at him]. Umm...yeah. Not exactly the most graceful or appropriate response from Jones.

Vitor Belfort Passed His Random Drug Test! Good Job, Vitor!

(Would you expect anything less from the UFC's most trusted Values Enforcer?) Earlier this month, the Nevada State Athletic Commission finally got off its collective ass and subjected UFC middleweight contender Vitor Belfort to a random drug test — his first since being granted a conditional license in July. Well, the results are back, and in the case of 37-year-old Vitor...he is NOT currently using performance enhancing drugs! ESPN reported yesterday that Belfort passed the blood and urine test that he submitted at the request of the NSAC on November 1st, coming up negative for all banned substances. Belfort's blood serum testosterone levels were also within normal range. According to NSAC executive director Bob Bennett, the UFC paid for the cost of Belfort's test. Vitor Belfort is currently scheduled to challenge Chris Weidman for the UFC middleweight title in the main event of UFC 184, February 28th in Los Angeles. "The Phenom" is expected to undergo further random drug-testing by the California State Athletic Commission prior to the match.

War Machine Pleads Not Guilty to Felony Charges Related to Beating of Christy Mack, Will Face Trial in February

(War Machine is scolded for snickering in court during Christy Mack's testimony last Friday.) Former MMA fighter Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver — better known to his fans as War Machine — plead not guilty yesterday to the 34 felony counts he is facing related to the August 8th beating of his ex-girlfriend Christy Mack and her friend Corey Thomas, as well as previous attacks on Mack dating back to May 2013. Koppenhaver entered his pleas at Nevada’s Clark County District Court, and will remain incarcerated until his trial begins in February. Last month, Koppenhaver's lawyer was looking to make a plea deal to avoid a life sentence. Then, Koppenhaver tried to kill himself in jail, and his defense strategy apparently changed. The charges that Koppenhaver currently faces include felony battery causing substantial bodily harm, sexual assault, burglary, strangulation, attempted sexual assault, and preventing or dissuading a witness or victim from reporting a crime.

Zuffa Earnings Down 40 Percent in 2014 Due to Fighter Injury, Reports S&P

Dana White Fertittas Brock Lesnar Lorenzo Frank III MMA photos funny (Looks like it's time to start calling some old boyfriends, boys!) In August of 2011, the UFC inked a multi-year deal with FOX, in what remains the biggest broadcasting deal in MMA history. As per the deal, the UFC increased their amount of events per year from 27 in 2011 to 32 in 2012. What followed was the now infamous year of the "injury curse", wherein over 105 fights were cancelled due to injury. It's been much of the same for the UFC ever since, with most of the promotion's champions being forced to the sidelines with long-term injuries or other affliction's in the past two years. Fun fact: There have been just 11 title fights in 2014, with six of those fights belonging to Jose Aldo, Ronda Rousey, and Demetrious Johnson. Fan complaints of oversaturation have reached a fever pitch, and in July, the UFC was forced to cancel UFC 176 in the wake of Aldo's injury. But you already know this. Any MMA fan who has been paying at least half-attention to the sport in recent years has seen the negative effects the UFC's increased schedule has had on their product. What you might not know, however, is just how bad the injury bug of 2012-2014 is affecting Zuffa's earnings, and Standard and Poor's recent assessment of Zuffa (via MMAJunkie) paints a pretty ugly picture...

Joe Rogan On The Thrill Of Calling UFC Action

For Joe Rogan, the opportunity to sit Octagon-side on a Saturday night and call UFC action is a true thrill. Rogan’s been doing it since 1997, going from interviewer to color commentator.

Ashlee Evans-Smith Replaces Holly Holm at UFC 181 Against Raquel Pennington

(Photo via Danny Morales / DTM News Journal) With bantamweight rising star Holly Holm out of her UFC debut next month due to a neck injury, the UFC has signed Ashlee Evans-Smith to fill in for Holm at UFC 181: Hendricks vs. Lawler II (December 6th, Las Vegas) against Raquel Pennington. UFC officials announced the news yesterday. If Evans-Smith's name sounds vaguely familiar, there's a reason for that. Carrying a 3-0 professional record, Evans-Smith is best known as the woman responsible for giving transgendered fighter Fallon Fox her only loss, via third-round TKO last October. Evans-Smith also got destroyed by Veronica Rothenhausler in five seconds during an amateur bout in July 2012. From a competitive standpoint, Ashlee Evans-Smith vs. Raquel Pennington is actually a more compelling fight than Holly Holm vs. Raquel Pennington, which seemed like an obvious mismatch designed to put Holm over. I don't know...I'm just trying to find a silver lining here. UFC.com currently lists Evans-Smith vs. Pennington as a part of the UFC 181 prelims broadcast on FOX Sports 1. A heavyweight bout between Todd Duffee and Anthony Hamilton has been moved up to the main card in the wake of Holly Holm's withdrawal.
