Cub Swanson: “I Won’t Beg For A Title Shot”

Cub Swanson

Cub Swanson (20-5) Has eight knockouts, seven submissions and five decision victories in his MMA career.

With what he has done in his recent fights, you would think he would get a title shot right? Well he may or may not, but he says he will not beg for one!

“I feel like I’ve done enough, and I want them to say, ‘Cub, we want you to fight for the title,’” Swanson told MMAjunkie Radio. “I don’t want to have to beg for it. That’s all I’m trying to say. I’m the kind of guy who lets my fighting do the talking. I want them to want me to fight for the title.”

He is currently on a five fight winning streak. He beat Ross Pearson via knockout at UFC on FX 4 – Maynard vs. Guida on Jun / 22 / 2012, then Charles Oliveira via unanimous decision at UFC 152 – Jones vs. Belfort on Sep / 22 / 2012, then Dustin Poirier via knockout at UFC on Fuel TV 7 – Barao vs. McDonald on Feb / 16 / 2013 and finally Dennis Siver via knockout at UFC 162 – Silva vs. Weidman on Jul / 06 / 2013.

He is coming off a win over Jeremy Stephens.
