Plus his thoughts on a potential Aldo fight...
Cub Swanson recently spoke about his fight with Jeremy Stephens at UFC Fight Night 44 and more. Check out the highlights:
On his punching speed: "I feel like I'm the fastest puncher in the featherweight division, and I'm willing to put it to the test if anyone wants to tell me otherwise."
On a potential fight with Jose Aldo: "I think it would probably be the most anticipated fight in featherweight history. I can't say the outcome, but I'm very confident in my ability. Obviously, I need to respect him. He's the only person to ever sit me down with a strike in my whole career, and that was a rough one. I learned a lot from that, and I think I've paid my dues, and I'm just excited to try and get that one back."
On Aldo: "I think when an athlete is very explosive, and that's what he is, and he's cutting a lot of weight, he comes out very strong and then he has to pace himself. You're going five, five-(minute rounds). I do think he's trying to keep the belt and not really trying to put people away, and when he's getting the good life, it's totally understandable. All I could say is I hope I never try to do that. I might, who knows. Just now, I'm really hungry, and I want to win."
