This was the first fight under Swanson’s newly signed contract with the UFC and now the featherweight fighter has lost two straight under the UFC banner.
Swanson took to Instagram after the event to issue a statement on his latest defeat:
On the other side of the coin is the “Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung, who is almost ready to return to action after a knee injury sidelined him shortly before a scheduled bout with Ricardo Lamas at UFC 214.
Jung would also take to Instagram to challenge Edgar to a fight:
Edgar has yet to respond to the challenge laid out by Jung, as Edgar stated after UFC Fight Night Atlantic City that he would like a shot at the UFC Featherweight Title.
If Edgar were to be granted another opportunity at the gold, it would be his third opportunity to win the 145 pound strap.
