Earlier this week rumors began running rampant that top featherweight contenders Cub Swanson and Frankie Edgar were set to battle in the main event of UFC on FOX 13 in Phoenix, Arizona on December 13th.
The UFC never made any official announcement, and neither Swanson nor Edgar made any public statement regarding the potential match up. The rumors were started when Frankie’s coach, Renzo Gracie, and his manager, Ali Abdelaziz, tweeted the potential matchup out to their followers.

Both of those tweets picked up a lot of steam, and MMA sites all over the internet began speculating whether or not the fight would be actually made.
Apparently, Cub Swanson was not a big fan of Edgar’s management team “shady” tactics.
Props to Frankie’s camp for announcing fights that aren’t even real. Shady management at its finest!
