    Post fight interview for all those who would like to see, I'll put this at the top of the post with it being post fight.

    I'll do the cliff notes, again it's probably going to take me time as like always the interviewers are really quiet so you can't hear them (baffles me why they don't ever have mics), however enjoy.



    1. Being relaxed through fight week and getting the win - 0:00
    2. Did he expect to get Fight of the Night - 0:40
    3. Did his striking and durability surprise him - 1:01
    4. Did he feel underestimated with the odd's - 1:45
    5. Did he see something in his game with the body shots - 2:05
    6. Going through the period of the losing streak - 3:00
    7. Did he have any words with Kron after the fight - 3:50
    8. Was he surprised he didn't try take him down more - 4:39
    9. What advice would he give Kron and the loyalty comment - 5:06
    10. His emotions tonight as opposed to his emotions in the Choi fight - 5:49
    11. Having success in Tampa - 6:46
    12. Moving into second place with Max accomplishment for 16 wins in FW - 7:18
    13. Any name for his next fight - 8:34
    14. Choi rumours for a fight in December and fighting Choi again - 9:04
    15. Does he think Kron will have trouble with other opponents - 9:28
    16. Best thing Kron brought tonight - 10:23
    17. Was it cool Gracie's being in Kron's corner - 10:47
    18. How did it feel to not be the gatekeeper - 11:29

    Again, apologies if some of the questions aren't exactly as asked, they're always incredibly quiet so you can barely hear them however hope it's ok for you anyway :)



    ----------------------------



    A really great interview with Cub from earlier leading up to his fight with Kron Gracie.

    I'll do the cliff notes however this MMA Fighting channel forever have their interviewers really quiet so it's really hard to hear them though I'll try my best for people here.

    It's a really good interview is this and he has such a fantastic attitude which I think you'll all appreciate.



    1. Did the fight appeal to Cub cause of the Gracie name? - 0:00
    2. The specific places where they refused to train Cub cause of the Gracie name - 1:02
    3. Grappling preparation for this fight - 2:14
    4. When fighting a specialist how to not be so consumed with him trying to get you down - 3:08
    5. How does he feel about Kron using Cub to make a name for himself - 3:57
    6. Does Cub enjoy being that position fighting these guys - 4:59
    7. Where is his mental state heading into the fight after the losses - 5:40
    8. How much steam does he have left as a fighter - 6:54
    9. Does he see a realistic path to having a title fight - 7:43

    Again, apologies if the questions written aren't exactly as they're asked, 95% of those interviewers you can barely hear give and take one or two though I think I've got the gist of it.

    Enjoy :)


    ----------------------------

    Edit: I've found another which they've uploaded from today just now and is really good also, again the interviewer is quiet but I'll try my best.

    It's good how he talks about how a lot of people look up to him and he doesn't want to let them down.



    1. Does it get easier or harder the cut over time - 0:00
    2. Has he ever thought about moving up and avoiding the weight cut - 0:47
    3. How old will his kids be when he finishes fighting - 1:22
    4. What advice would you give your 20 year old self - 2:08
    5. What does he mean by fun in regards to having more fun now - 2:55
    6. Has the transition happened naturally - 4:21
    7. Does he still have an interest in boxing - 5:12
    8. Did he see Tyron Woodley call out Canello today - 6:19
    9. What did he make of Kron's breathing exercise yesterday - 6:47
    10. How he feels about open workouts - 7:23


    ----------------------------

    Edit: Open Workouts



    Audience questions from open workouts (time stamped).



    UFC Gym just tweeted this, this is very good also :)

    He needs to avoid the mistakes he made in the Ortega fight

    Very winnable fight for him Imo

    Yeah, he's such a nice dude, I'm glad he says the things he mentions in the video too in regards to things also as obviously we do wonder those things at this point :)

    I hope so, I also hope the UFC then book him a more stylistic fight as opposed to these submission artists kinda fights all the time, would be cool to see Cub bring another stand and bang like we saw with the Choi fight :)

    I'd love to see all the excuses that the Gracie clan come up with if Kron gets slept.

    Yeah, I like the fact how he see's every new fight as a new journey too which when you think about it, it is.

    Also how he talks about the losses and being aware of them trying to build a name off him which he's very gracious and humble about because he admires the Gracie's too so it's probably a little surreal to him but even with all the things lately such as Kron's comments towards him and the refusals he's had with the training because he's fighting a Gracie he's very respectable of it.

    Ha, I've no idea lol, I do hope Cub gets this win though :)

    I'm a huge Kron fan but this is a dangerous fight for him because Cub is a big step up.

    Seemed like he was always underappreciated and undervalued by the UFC

    Yeah, he talks about this on the Unfiltered show on Fight Pass (this is where those reports came from), when you watch the interview you can see how it came into conversation like he didn't want to make a big thing about it but it was obviously inevitable how it was going to come up but it's really good :)

    I'm not sure if you've got Fight Pass but it's worth a watch is that interview :)

    I think so, lately anyway for sure because they keep on trying to book these fights against him for these up and comers ever since the Ortega loss, I really hope after this they book Cub another fight like Choi though as I know I've said that a few times but this is where he shines and he loves to go in, have fun and stand and bang.

    With an opponent like Kron he can't do that and has to be more technical so we're not getting that fight along the lines we know he can bring with opponents like Choi for example :)

    You're welcome!

    Again apologies if some of the questions aren't exact, I was having to listen to it and rewind it back for ages so it took me a while to do so I could try and get what they were asking due to most of them being so quiet but I hope it's alright for you anyway :)

    No need to apologize man, fuck the people on here who are too lazy to do their own leg work. When dudes like you go the extra mile it's a real treat, so again, thanks.

    Nothing boring about Cub Swanson, if you're really a future MMA fighter you've got a lot to live up to in regards to Cub Swanson.
