Another Saturday night, another UFC event in the books with last night’s (Sat., April 21, 2018) UFC Fight Night 128 from the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

There were blistering knockouts that thrilled the Atlantic City crowd, but nary a submission throughout all ten fights.

Kevin Lee and David Branch delivered and others faltered, but overall the event was a lively one.

With that said, let’s take a look at the biggest winners and losers from UFC Atlantic City.

Biggest Winners:

Kevin Lee

Lee bounced back from a submission loss to Tony Ferguson by destroying feared striker Edson Barboza.

Lee’s ground and pound was absolutely brutal, punishing Barboza until the fight was stopped in the fifth round. It was just a dominant performance from Lee, who certainly needed a victory to erase that Ferguson loss, which cost him a chance at UFC gold.

Lee could be a serious contender in the lightweight division, and Saturday’s win over Barboza places him right on track for title contention.

Perhaps a rematch with Al Iaquinta would be a good fight for Lee.

Looking to shake off his first-ever knockout loss at March’s UFC 222, former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar made a shockingly fast turnaround to face Cub Swanson in the main event of tonight’s (Sat., April 21, 2018) UFC Fight Night 128 from the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The bout was a rematch of their 2014 affair which “The Answer” won by dominant fifth-round submission, and this time around the New Jersey native was able to pick up the win yet again.

But unable to secure the takedown this time, Edgar utilized his striking to best Swanson in the three-round affair. When it was all said and done “The Answer” emerged victorious and revealed his plans to get back into the featherweight title picture against the winner of UFC 226’s Max Holloway vs. Briant Ortega.

It was a tough, hard-fought win that, while perhaps not being as spectacular as his loss, was a testament to his overall heart and skill as one of the most consistent fighters ever at 155 and 145 pounds.
