Frankie Edgar wants to fight Cub Swanson.
Swanson now seems to want the same fight.
So, “The Answer” has proposed a possible time and event for the featherweight contest on Twitter recently.

Edgar (17-4-1) is a former UFC lightweight champion who owns 11 wins in 16 career Octagon appearances. Upon dropping the title, and subsequent rematch with Benson Henderson for the belt, Edgar moved down to 145 pounds and immediately challenged Jose Aldo.
Aldo scored a decision victory, but Edgar has rebounded with back-to-back wins over Charles Oliveira and BJ Penn.
Swanson, meanwhile, has won six in a row since a 2011 submission loss to Ricardo Lamas. He is 21-5 overall, including recent victories vs. Jeremy Stephens, Dennis Siver and Dustin Poirier.
UFC on FOX 13 will mark the debut for the promotion in Phoenix. So far, no bouts have been assigned to the card.
