For Cub Swanson, perhaps the sixth time will be the charm. Swanson ran his impressive Octagon win-streak to an even half-dozen on Saturday at UFC Fight Night 44, out-dueling the headhunting Jeremy Stephens en route to a unanimous-decision victory (49-46 x 2, 48-47).

And will have to prove he's worthy of the imaginary crown against Cole Miller in July. Conor McGregor has been doing a lot of talking since making his Octagon debut back in 2013, when he defeated Marcus Brimmage via technical knockout at UFC on FUEL TV 9. And after he busted up Max Holloway in his sophomore effort at UFC Fight Night 26 four months later, his chirps only got louder, by going on a crusade to bash the entire featherweight division, calling Dennis Siver "old," Dustin Poirier a "peah read news >>
