Frankie Edgar-Cub Swanson Was In Talks For TUF 17 Finale

According to Damon Martin of Bleacher Report, UFC officials were in talks with Frankie Edgar and Cub Swanson to book the featherweights for The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale main event slot.

Instead, Urijah Faber and Scott Jorgensen were cast in that role for the April event. The card needed a new main event after UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson suffered an injury and was forced out of a planned fight with John Moraga.

The card will also feature female fighters Miesha Tate vs. Cat Zingano, heavyweights Travis Browne vs. Gabriel Gonzaga, and the finals in the current season of TUF.
