Cub Swanson is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Artem Lobov this past weekend in the main event of UFC Fight Night 108 in Nashville.
“I’d like to fight the winner of Aldo and Holloway,” Swanson said in his post fight octagon interview. “It’s about time, I think I’ve won nine out of eleven so you know, let’s do it.”
Swanson’s record now stands at 25-7 with a four fight win streak that includes two fight of the nights bonuses. His last loss was to current Interim Featherweight Champion Max Holloway by submission in 2015. Swanson also has a loss to the current Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo back in WEC by first round TKO in 2009 so a rematch with either of them is an opportunity to get back a loss.
“I’ve lost to both those guys, so they both equally sting.” Swanson said according to FOX Sports. In my whole career I’ve never fought for a belt, so that’s something I would like to do or at least have the opportunity to do.”
“For the division I think it’s exciting for Holloway to win and just kind of build more buzz. But I think my chances of fighting for a title, it’s more likely if Aldo wins because then there’s not going to be a rematch, things like that. So I see both sides.”
Cub Swanson is currently awaiting the arrival of his first child due this summer so will most likely be ready to fight again in late December or early next year with hopes of a title fight when he returns.
