Watch UFC Fight Night 128 Full Fights
After exactly what has been an eventful beginning to the UFC’s spring schedule, the train simply keeps rollin’ down the tracks. The UFC Fight Night 128 card is upon us. This time, the organization heads to Atlantic City, N.J., on Saturday, April 21. While it’s a town that has actually certainly seen much better days after when being a gambling capital for the eastern United States, the UFC is trying its own luck that it can deliver another entertaining fight card.
The main event is a crucial light-weight bout featuring two fighters who have recently contended some of the best at 155 pounds. Edson Barboza is coming off a loss to present UFC light-weight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, while his challenger, Kevin Lee, combated fearlessly (albeit foolishly) with a staph infection at UFC 216 and ultimately suffered a submission loss to Tony Ferguson. The light-weight department continues to be a muddled mess, regardless of the UFC’s recent efforts to try to clarify things. Barboza and Lee are still both quite in the mix, however, and a win by either fighter might potentially set them up for a quick go back to the title discussion.
The co-headliner is a featherweight bout in between 2 fighters who in fact have something in common– or, more properly, somebody in common. Both Cub Swanson and Frankie Edgar are coming off decisive losses to current No. 1 featherweight contender Brian Ortega. Swanson was submitted by Ortega last year, whereas Edgar suffered a knockout loss to Ortega at UFC 222 in March. It stays to be seen if it was sensible for Edgar to accept another fight so not long after being on the getting end of what appeared like a frightening surface. Nevertheless, the winner of this fight may likewise find themselves right back in the title image at 145 pounds.
