Swanson was dragged to the ground by Edgar and submitted back at UFC Fight Night 57 in November 2014, but has reeled off a 4-2-0 record since then, including a memorable win over Doo Hoo Choi at UFC 206 in Toronto.
Edgar himself was surprisingly finished for the first time by Brian Ortega at UFC 222 on March 3 and is making a quick turnaround for this rematch.
“The Answer” is looking to reclaim possession of the featherweight title shot, currently held by Ortega.
