Conor McGregor has cut the featherweight line, and nearly garnered a UFC title shot.

All he has to do is beat Dennis Siver in his next bout.

The division’s other number one contender, Cub Swanson, has also been promised a title shot, time, and time again, only to be passed up for more favorable competition.

In a recent interview with The Bleacher Report, Swanson vents:

“I’ll be excited to get a title shot when I have a contract for that fight, but until then it’s just words. I’ve had a chip on my shoulder for a long time and especially so now with all of this. I’m just going to keep winning fights, and I’ll take out the frustration of being passed over on whoever they put in front of me.”

“For my past three fights, people have been asking me if I’m excited to get the title shot. My win over Dennis Siver could have gotten it. My fight against Jeremy Stephens was supposed to be an official title eliminator, and this fight with Edgar is another title eliminator. They’ve decided to pass me by, and hearing the winner gets a title shot almost means nothing to me.”
