Surging Cub Swanson Wants A Crack At Conor McGregor – UFC Brass Says It’s “Unlikely”
Cub Swanson used to be just another brawler. Seemingly cut from the same cloth as Lenard Garcia, both fighters were known for always being ready for a scrap… ready to throw down in the middle of that WEC cage… ready to throw caution to the wind, entertaining the masses like the gladiators of ancient Rome. Either they would win in an amazing, heart-stopping fashion, or they would go out on their shield. That kind of fighting mentality is great for gathering fans. Not so good for title runs. In 2010, both fighters were trading wins and losses. Cub always seemed to use his grit and guts to position himself for a chance at stardom, only to lose against the top dogs of the WEC, like Mendes, and Aldo. Garcia? He would do the same, with losses against Mark Hominick and Chan Sung Jung. It seemed like they were both destined for gatekeeper status at best, always being relied upon for a good brawl, but not much else. But then something changed.

Jacare Souza: 'I have the style to beat anyone, including UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman'
"I have the perfect style to beat anyone, including Chris Weidman. Many people don't believe in my potential yet, but that's how I like it. I still have much to prove, I've fought only twice in the UFC, but I can guarantee you that I'm ready for any challenge to prove I have what it takes to get the title.(Francis Carmont) is a well-rounded fighter. He started his career in the striking area but has been taking down his opponents recently, doing a great job with his wrestling and jiu-jitsu. It's a complicated fighter to set up a strategy, but that's the type of challenge I like to fight."
