Cub Swanson Changes Tune About Fighting Frankie Edgar

Frankie Edgar expressed interest in a possible fight with Cub Swanson since he was unable to win the featherweight championship. Swanson isn’t sold yet about taking the New Jersey native on.

“If something better comes up or they have something else in mind, or they feel [Edgar] needs to win a fight before he can call out someone who has a four fight win streak, that’s that,” said Swanson on MMA Junkie Radio.

After much debate, Edgar made the drop to featherweight for his last fight. He was unsuccessful in his attempt to take the title from Jose Aldo, losing a decision at UFC 156. Before that, Edgar was the lightweight champion and switched weight classes after he lost the title and rematch that followed. Edgar has now lost three in row, with each defeat revolving around gold.

Swanson’s decision win over Dustin Poirier at UFC on FUEL TV earlier in the month was his fourth consecutive win. The other three fights he finished by the second round.
