Cub Swanson wasn't too pleased that members of Frankie Edgar's crew took it upon themselves to announce a featherweight bout between the two men this December; when in reality, the two haven't been booked to face off.

Maybe it's just me, and it's probably because Frankie is too classy to say so....but really seems like Cub is afraid to fight Frankie, in fear of losing and not getting his title shot. I really don't like the way he has gone about everything...yeah he has won 6 straight but he has been asking for shots for the past 2 years, even trying to jump in front of Ricardo Lamas, who beat Cub. If Cub really wants to solidify the #1 spot, he would fight Frankie, but he won't because he's afraid of losing, so he'll sit on the sidelines protected.

PS - What unfinished business is there with Aldo???? He TKO'd you in 7 seconds...lol, really?

Frankie is trying to steal food of Cub's plate, its not just his management doing this. This whole " we have to fight sometime so why not now" bull shit pisses me off, the why not now part is obvious. HE GOT HIS SHOT: FINALLY. You can fight him when he's champ, find someone else, Cub is busy for a while. It would be very stupid to waste the Cub hype on another #1 contender match against a less than exciting fighter.

Cub should fight Edgar. Aldo fights every 6 months and he's fighting Mendes in October so Cub will be waiting a long time before Aldo feels like fighting again. If Cub wants to prove he's next in line, keep kicking everyone's asses until Aldo is ready.

Cub should fight another fight before he gets his shot at the FW champ..there's still quite a few fighters for him to face off against..so why not take em and earn a freaken paycheck or even a fight with a low tier fighter to stay active and more prepared for the title shot..IMHO it really doesn't matter who he faces for the title, both Aldo and Mendez are on another level then Cub is..just to be a a-hole if I was Dana, match up Lamas with Cub again lmfao..

No. The way it works is you get paid to fight. Frankie is in fact trying to make it possible for Cub to put more food on his plate by giving him another fight in the mean time. If he can't beat Frank then it is what it is.

Thats not the way it works with title fights. He would have to risk his spot in line at least 3 times to make what he would off of 1 title fight. And thats if he loses, if he wins, being champ pays far more again. Its like trading in a shot at 10 million for 3 winning scratchies.

Yeah I'm not so sure it works like you think. He gets 29 and 29. He may have a stipulation that he gets more in a title fight but it's not millions of dollars. He's scared and no or later chances are they are going to fight anyway.
