Cub Swanson isn’t getting an easy fight to break out of his recent funk.
“Killer Cub” is in a slump dating back to April 2017, his last victory a unanimous decision win over Artem Lobov. Swanson’s last three fights have seen him submitted by Renato Moicano, outpointed in a rematch with Frankie Edgar, and also submitted by Brian Ortega. Prior to those losses, Swanson (25-10) had won four straight and 10 of 12. He has earned eight Fight of the Night awards in his time with the UFC and World Extreme Cagefighting.
In five UFC appearances, Burgos, 28, has twice collected Fight of the Night bonuses. He picked up the fastest win of his career in his last outing against Kurt Holobaugh at UFC 230 in November, submitting him with an armbar 2:11 into the opening round.
