UFC Fight Night 57 full poster pic for 'Edgar vs. Swanson' on Nov. 22 in Austin, Texas

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Frankie Edgar looks to steal Cub Swanson's place in the 145-pound contender's line when they hook 'em up in the main event of UFC Fight Night 57, which takes place at Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, on Nov. 22, 2014.

"Edgar vs. Swanson" was originally expected to be a title eliminator bout; however, Conor McGregor may be next in line to fight Jose Aldo -- or Chad Mendes -- depending on who takes care of business at UFC 179 later this month (Oct. 25, 2014) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (more on that here).

Here's a look at the UFC Fight Night 57 poster:

The event airs live on FOX Sports 1 and Fight Pass.

Elsewhere on the card, top lightweight strikers Bobby Green and Edson Barboza bang it out for a spot in the crowded 155-pound title chase. Green is the winner of eight straight, including last summer's upset over former Strikeforce champion Josh Thomson. Barboza, meanwhile, is fresh off a technical knockout victory over Evan Dunham back in July.
