    Swanson's last fights were all decisions. I want to see him vs Aldo presonally, but if Max wins I see Edgar getting a shot. If that happens idk who Swanson fights then, maybe Aldo again but as a FN headliner.

    That is true. If someone else was to become champ than those guys maybe I would wanna see cub in a fight for the title, but since he got his ass handed by both guys it feels very

    Well he might not have a case but that doesn't mean he won't get the shot if Aldo wins.

    So many rematches now that they'll have to start giving title shots to the guy whose lost to Aldo the least...

    Should be Cub X Aldo II if Aldo wins or Frankie X Holloway if Max wins imo

    His shots are technical and to call Cub predictable tells me that you've never seen a fight of his.

    Least predictable guy in the division aside from Yair

    His predictability in the form that he wings strikes and throws haymakers constantly

    Mendes was the consensus #2 when he got the rematch, he didn't need to have an impressive win streak. And he did have a better win streak than Conor, but you know how that goes with Conor.

    Cub's win streak reminded me of Matt Brown's. Sure he won a bunch of fights in a row, but he beat 0 top guys in the process

    Well, he certainly deserves a rematch against Aldo since it was a fluke KO. I mean, it was a fluke right? All I ever see here is how Conor's win over Aldo was a fluke, so Aldo's KO of Cub has to be considered one too, using that same shitty logic....

    I don't think any time a fighter intentional throws a shot and it lands, it can be a fluke. But I also don't think either of those fights would end as quickly as they did the first time around.

    If Aldo wins nobody else really makes sense.

    I remember the post fight headline for the Aldo vs Cub fight
    "Jose Aldo is his name, violence is his game. "
    What a beast he was back then.

    I don't disagree about the fights lasting longer. I just think it's hilarious that people throw the term fluke around when it involves someone throwing a strike that they intended to land and it ends the night. It's not like these guys are slipping on banana peels in the ring and falling into a strike to get KO'ed.

    Lmao. He beat zero top guys but the even shittier list of guys Mendes beat and much more recent embarrassing loss to Aldo at the time didn't bother you at all?

    Okay then, bundlecunt. Keep telling yourself that revisionist bullshit if you want but don't whistle your ass in my direction and call it a summer breeze.

    I get you like Cub Swanson, but he'll never get a title shot unless it's gifted to him because he can not beat the top guys in the division. So if it makes you feel better, keep pretending that he deserved a title shot.

    I have Edgar and KZ comfortably ahead of Cub Swanson, his best win ruining DHC hype. There is just nothing special about Cub (sorry); KZ is at least is highly skilled in grappling, unorthodox in general, can probably go 25 minutes while Edgar is Edgar; both KZ and Edgar finish fights. Swanson's last 4 wins were decisions, including aging Kawajiri and extremely overhyped Lobov (few fighters have as many losses as they do wins, even bad fighters have comfortable lead in win:loss ratio). When you face that many midtier guys, you need to destroy or dominate them.

    the only issues are that yes, Aldo has wins over top FWs KZ and Edgar but a Holloway win would shake up the div.
