Cub Swanson vs. Chan Sung Jung
Remember back when Cub Swanson lost to Jose Aldo? This is a completely different fighter.
Swanson has really come into his own in the UFC, putting together three consecutive wins, over George Roop, Ross Pearson and Charles Oliveira. Those are all very tough opponents, and Swanson finished them in dramatic style.
Swanson told me after his fight on Saturday night that he wants to prove the quick loss to Aldo was a fluke. While I don't think it was a fluke, I don't think a second fight would go the same way, or end nearly as quickly, at least.
But Aldo will most likely be tied up in a bout with Frankie Edgar when he's ready to return, and that leaves Swanson needing another opponent. Chan Sung Jung, "The Korean Zombie," makes perfect sense. Jung is also on a roll of his own and is considered a legitimate contender, so why not pair him up with Swanson and give the winner a title shot?
