People have torn him down over the years...
Cub Swanson is in the middle of a six-fight win streak, but there were times he didn't even think he'd make it. Swanson spoke with MMAjunkie and said that while he sometimes want to go off on people who have doubted his ability to come back from injuries, he's glad that he focused on what he does best.
"People along the way said certain things and didn't mean it, but (didn't know) how rude it was or how blunt or how messed up it was," Swanson said. "I'm glad I stuck with it. I was just talking to my stepmom about that today about never letting it get to me and sticking with it, and look where I'm at now."
The featherweight most recently won at UFC Fight Night 44 over Jeremy Stephens and earned a Fight of the Night bonus in the process.
