Cub Swanson Responds to Call Out by Frankie Edgar
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 02.21.2013



MMAjunkie Radio interviewed UFC featherweight fighter Cub Swanson who was recently called out by Frankie Edgar. Edgar said he would like to fight Swanson in a five round main event. Here are some highlights:

Swanson on how he took the call out from Edgar: "I took it both respectfully and disrespectfully. First, who the hell calls out anybody in a five-round fight unless it's a title fight? I found that strange. For one, I felt disrespected that he thinks I don't have the cardio to get five rounds. But then I was like OK, I feel some respect because he feels the only way he can beat me is with a decision a long, drawn-out decision. So I found it kind of funny."

Swanson's thoughts on a fight with Edgar: "I'd love to fight him, but at this point, I'm not in high school. I'm not going to fall for anybody who calls me out. If the UFC feels that's the best matchup for me, I'm ready. I'm down. But if they have something else in mind, that's what I'm going to do. I've worked my butt off to get in this situation and to be able to call my own shots. So we'll see what they have to say...I feel like it might be on the only fight for me, but if something better comes for me comes up or they have something else in mind, or they feel [Edgar] needs to win a fight before he can call out someone who has a four-fight win streak, that's that," he said. "I'm a fan of his, but as a fighter, I don't fear him or anything. I'd love to scrap with him. But at this point, it's about getting a title shot and things like that. If the UFC thinks that the best thing for me, cool."
