Several matches lately have been put together off fighters messaging with each other on Twitter.
Another one might be in the making, as Ricardo Lamas and Cub Swanson have been bantering back and forth.
Lamas, who has won four straight since joining the UFC, posted that “I’ve already earned it, even the champ (Jose Aldo) thinks so himself. I have tunnel vision and the only thing I see is that belt. No one else matters.”
Swanson took exception to that remark, firing back with “your scared and if you keep trying to play it safe I’m just gonna step over you.”
That didn’t go unnoticed by Lamas, to which he said “no one is scared of you cubby I already finished you. Quit trying to be a twitter tough guy.”
Back in 2011, Lamas earned a submission win over Swanson. Since that loss, though, Swanson has gone 5-0, including finishes vs. Dennis Siver, Charles Oliveira, Ross Pearson and George Roop.
