Featherweight contender Cub Swanson is currently riding a 6 fight win streak with the UFC and he hopes to make it 7 in a row when he faces the ultimate tough out in former UFC lightweight Champion, Frankie Edgar.

Swanson, who is the recipient of 2 Fight of the Night and Knockout of the Night honors, returns to the Octagon on November 27th. This is his second consecutive headlining event; his most recent was his decision victory over Jeremy Stephens in June. He has a 6-1 record with the UFC (21-5 overall).

Former 155lb. champion Frankie Edgar is no stranger to the bright lights himself. He has competed in 7 title fights under the UFC banner, at both lightweight and featherweight. The number 7 also comes up in his impressive resume, as he has earned Fight of the Night accolades 7 times in his storied career.

His most recent trip inside the Octagon was a dominant one as he dismantled MMA pioneer BJ Penn in the main event of TUF 19: Edgar vs. Penn Finale. Edgar has an 11-4 and 1 record in the UFC (17-4-1 overall)

A lightweight affair has also been added to this already impressive event, as Edson Barboza takes on Bobby Green.

Barboza who has a 7-2 record with the UFC is coming off of a win via body kick over Evan Dunham at UFC Fight Night: Cerrone vs. Miller in July of this year.

Strikeforce and UFC vet. Bobby Green is undefeated in his 4 fights with the UFC. A split decision victory over Josh Thompson at UFC on Fox: Lawler vs. Brown in July marks his biggest win.
