The weigh-ins for UFC Fight Night Edgar vs. Swanson went down in Austin, Texas today with all 24 competitors on weight.
Michael Bisping was among the on-air hosts for the UFC broadcast, and says despite his last loss, you can’t keep a good man down — he’s not going anywhere, and will be back before Bruce Buffer has time to say “IT’S TIME!”
He also took the time to insult one of the competitors:
Ouch. Bisping said Curran was one of his main sparring partners for his Rockhold fight “and the results speak for themselves.”

On the undercard, “Phoenix” Puig had a big smile, along with his Mexican flag and sombrero, to excite the Mexican-American crowd. But old vet and Texas native Yves Edwards enjoyed a bigger reception.
Matt Wiman and Isaac Vallie-Flagg had the most aggressive-looking staredown, we’ll see if that translates to a good fight. Similarly, Bobby Green and Edson Barboza were slow to pull away from one another.
