UFC Fight Night 57 is officially in the books. 

The 12-fight card produced some solid action as well as a handful of noteworthy finishes, wrapping up a busy November for the UFC.

The main event was all Frankie Edgar, the former lightweight champ submitting Cub Swanson in the final seconds of their match. He carried the action all night, but refused to coast to a decision.

In the co-main event of the evening Edson Barboza turned away Bobby Green, getting the better of him on the feet for the majority of 15 minutes. It ranks as the Brazilian’s most impressive victory to date, and should set him up for a big fight next time out.

Other performances of note belong to Paige VanZant, Doo Ho Choi, Akbarh Arreola and Alexey Oliynyk, who all finished their opponents.
