With last night's (Sat., June 28, 2014) victory over Jeremy Stephens in the main event of UFC Fight Night 44 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, Cub Swanson is now undefeated in his last six fights inside the Octagon. Sprinkled in there are three bonus awards and a whole hell of a lot of combat entertainment. So why is it he's still struggling to get into the title discussion? It could be -- and most likely is -- that Jose Aldo is still the king of the featherweight division. That's the sa read news >>

Frankie Edgar's demolition of Cub Swanson on Saturday night may bring us back to the inevitable fork in the road.

He maintained top position for much of the bout and subsequently eliminated Swanson's striking prowess. From top position, Edgar rained down elbows and punches in a one-sided beatdown.
