Cub Swanson joined MMAJunkie radio to talk about his upcoming matchup this Saturday with Jeremy Stephens and how he initially wasn’t thrilled with the matchup because he wanted a fighter ranked higher on the featherweight ladder.

“At first, it was a little bit hard just because I feel like I knew right away the fans were – I read the stuff they send me and stuff like that, and I knew they were going to be a little disappointed because of the rankings,” Swanson recently told MMAjunkie Radio. ” … Granted, I don’t think he’s any easier of a fight just because of the number next to his name. … I thought there would be some complaints.”

“I think stylistically and him just being undefeated in the division, I thought it was a good matchup, and really, it’s another matchup for me to go out there and get some more fans,” he said. “Because I feel like that’s all I’m lacking.”
