Swanson Comments on Korean Super Boy’s Chin


The Korean Superboy Choi Doo-ho won ten fights in a row and was signed by the UFC. His first UFC fight was a Performance of the Night winning KO, over Sam Sicilia. His second UFC fight was a Performance of the Night winning KO, over Thiago Tavares.

Then he called out the #4 featherweight Cub Swanson, who accepted. The pair fought at UFC 206 in a fight of the year candidate, with Swanson taking a unanimous decision. The Korean took a biblical amount of punishment and kept on throwing.

Swanson appeared on Luke Thomas’s Sirius XM show and offered his thoughts.

“I was telling my coaches backstage that I don’t even try to hit a heavy bag that hard,” said Swanson, as transcribed by Thomas Myers for MMA Mania. “I remember wanting to turn around a couple of times. Toward the end, I had him on the fence, I wanted to turn around and look at the ref, like, ‘Are you serious?’ But, he just kept reviving.”

For his part, Choi is taking the loss as a lesson.

“I knew I had shortcomings in my game, but hadn’t had the chance to experience them until now,” he wrote

. “I learned so much last night. At first, I was disappointed in myself, but now I am full of anticipation and confidence that I can become stronger. I will not be defeated again. I will come back stronger than ever. I thank everyone so much for your concern and encouragement.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
