Cub Swanson posts statement following second loss to Frankie Edgar at UFC Atlantic City

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.
