Cub Swanson is showing class following his UFC Fight Night 128 loss to Frankie Edgar.
After his unanimous-decision defeat to Edgar (23-6-1 MMA, 17-6-1 UFC) in Saturday’s FS1-televised co-headliner at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J., Swanson (25-9 MMA, 10-5 UFC) posted a statement on social media. He expressed positive sentiments toward his opponent and vowed to rebound (via Instagram):
Well not the outcome I was looking for ?? but that’s the fight game. Congrats Frankie & I’m sorry to hear about your father ???? To all my supporters “Thank you so much & I promise to come back stronger!”
Swanson’s loss to Edgar marked the second in their two meetings. He succumbed to a fifth-round submission against “The Answer” at UFC Fight Night 57 in November 2014, but he hoped to get revenge in the rematch. It didn’t go his way, though.
The 34-year-old tested free agency following his December loss to Brian Ortega at UFC Fight Night 123. He re-signed with the promotion prior to the fight with Edgar, but with the defeat, now finds himself on a two-fight skid for the first time in three years.view original article >>
