Cub Swanson Felt He Deserved Featherweight No. 1 Contender Position

When Anthony Pettis went down with an injury and was removed from the featherweight title picture, Cub Swanson thought the UFC would offer him the spot. Instead, they went with Jung Chan-Sung.

“I definitely that it should’ve been me or [Ricardo] Lamas getting that shot,” said Swanson on MMA Junkie Radio. “Obviously, Lamas has that win over me. He’s had impressive wins since then. But I honestly feel like I’ve fought the toughest guys. I feel like the ‘Zombie’ has not had tough opponents.”

Sawnson drew Dennis Siver for UFC 162 as he looks to improve his four fight win streak. Three of those wins have ended within two rounds.

UFC 163 has featherweight champion Jose Aldo taking on Jung from the HSBC Arena in Brazil.
