Frankie Edgar ‘not going anywhere’ after bounce-back win.

Seven weeks after he was knocked out for the first time in his MMA career, New Jersey’s Frankie Edgar returned to bloody and beat Cub Swanson by unanimous decision in a 145-pound bout. Edgar, of Toms River was a clear fan favorite and had fans roaring and chanting his name throughout the fight. Edgar defeated Swanson by submission when they headlined a Fight Night card in November 2014 and got him again in Atlantic City. Edgar, who won 30-27 on all three scorecards, busted Swanson open under his right eye and controlled the three-round bout.

“Jersey, I love you baby! I love you,” Edgar said. “My kids are here, first fight they’ve seen. This was a dream come true to come here and perform in front of my home state.”

Edgar was fast on his feet, landed some hard jabs and connected on low kicks in the second round, and looked sharp in his return to the cage just seven weeks since he was knocked out by Brian Ortega in the first round at UFC 222. Swanson lost his last bout, also to Ortega — part of a winning streak that set him up for a title fight against Max Holloway in July. Edgar called out the winner of the Ortega-Holloway fight for his next bout.

“I’m not going anywhere,” Edgar said.

In the main event, Kevin Lee missed weight but was on the mark with injecting himself back into the UFC lightweight title picture. Lee pounded Edson Barboza until blood streamed down his face and won a 155-pound bout when the fight was stopped via TKO in the fifth round. Lee kept the fight on the ground and dominated until the doctors stopped the bout with Barboza wearing the crimson mask as he sat against the cage. His biggest challenge came when he absorbed one stiff kick to the face.

“I wanted to go all five rounds and show my complete game,” Lee said. Lee got the signature win he needed to remain in the lightweight championship picture and immediately took aim on the division’s champ, Khabib Nurmagomedov.

“You folks know what time it is. It’s Khabib time , baby,” he said.

Barboza was coming off a unanimous decision loss to Nurmagomedov, who won the 155-pound title stripped from an inactive Conor McGregor earlier this month. Lee was choked out by Tony Ferguson in October. Had Barboza and Lee won those bouts, they might have had a title fight lined up already instead of trying to use a Fight Night card to climb back into contention.

“I can do it all. I feel I’m the most complete fighter in the division,” Lee said. “I wanted to go out there and show it.”

Lee failed to make weight by 2 pounds for the fight, forcing him to forfeit 20 percent of his purse.
