Swanson Wants Title Shot Or Top Contender Bout Against Edgar or Lamas

“Well, if they are going to give someone else Aldo then that’s way too long for me to wait. I’m in prime position right now. I’m doing well. There’s no sense in me waiting, but I do want that fight and if I have to fight one more time then I would like the Ricardo Lamas fight or the Frankie Edgar fight.

I’ve thought about (losing) and I just think that if I did, for some reason, lose because the talent is so high, I wouldn’t get down on myself. I would just make the adjustments and try to get right back on a win streak because at this point of my career and in my life, I’m having so much fun fighting and I just like to get out there and do it.”

Currently in the midst of a five-fight win streak, top UFC featherweight contender, Cub Swanson, is looking for a shot at UFC gold and a chance at redemption against Jose Aldo.

If the UFC goes another direction than Cub wants a fight against Frankie Edgar or Ricardo Lamas so he can prove he’s the true number one contender in the UFC’s 145 pound division.

      yup, he’s looked amazing his last couple fights. he’s knockin on that door. a win against one of those guys should give cub the title shot, no doubt.

    if cub isnt getting a title shot a rematch with lamas makes sense. its cubs only loss in the UFC.
