Because of the ranking disparity...
Cub Swanson recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with Jeremy Stephens at UFC Fight Night 44. Check out the highlights:
On being booked in the fight: "At first, it was a little bit hard just because I feel like I knew right away the fans were – I read the stuff they send me and stuff like that, and I knew they were going to be a little disappointed because of the rankings...Granted, I don't think he's any easier of a fight just because of the number next to his name. … I thought there would be some complaints."
On Stephens: "I think stylistically and him just being undefeated in the division, I thought it was a good matchup, and really, it's another matchup for me to go out there and get some more fans. Because I feel like that's all I'm lacking."
