Cub Swanson defeats Jeremy Stephens by Unanimous Decision

 

The main event of UFC Fight Night 44 featured a featherweight bout between Cub Swanson and Jeremy Stephens to determine the number one contender.

Once upon a time, Cub Swanson was knocked out by Jose Aldo in just eight seconds.

It's been a long road back to redemption from that loss, but Swanson took a huge step in that direction on Saturday night. Swanson outlasted a game Jeremy Stephens on Saturday night, earning a unanimous decision in the main event of UFC Fight Night 44. The judges' scores were 49-46, 49-46, and 48-47.

The victory was Swanson's sixth in a row. He's expected to get a shot at the winner of Aldo's UFC featherweight title defense against Chad Mendes in August.

Also 4-1 is a good non high score but 1 and 5 were close rounds and Stephens really is a beast.

Round one was very close. Stephens did some damage late but Cub controlled more of the round. Round 2 all stephens. 3 and 4 all cub. 5 was mostly cub with 3 good shots by stephens at the end. 4-1 Cub is fair but 3-2 Stephens could be fair to without the benefit of a second viewing more as a judge and less as a fight fan.

Are you high? Obviously the judges were.. First two went to Stephens, 2nd 2 went to cub and I personally thought round 5 was 10-10. But could see either way, but 4-1 is ridiculous
