The first match between Jose Aldo and Cub Swanson was held at WEC 41, on June 7, 2009. The fight is still remembered for one of the fastest knockouts in the history of MMA! As soon as the match started, Aldo attacked with a left flying knee. It looked like he countered Cub’s takedown attempt! “Killer” went down like a sack of potatoes. The Brazilian landed three more punches on the ground before Steve Mazzagatti stepped in.
Jose Aldo (27-4 MMA, 9-3 UFC) had ups and downs in his last few fights. After UFC 194 Featherweight title loss to Conor McGregor, he earned a score of 2-2. “Scarface” won Frankie Edgar via TKO, then suffered two losses to Max Holloway at UFC 212 and UFC 218. In his last match, the Brazilian defeated Jeremy Stephens at UFC On Fox 30 via TKO after a brutal liver punch.
Cub Swanson (25-10 MMA, 10-6 UFC) is on a cold streak at the moment, with three losses in a row. He was defeated to Brian Ortega at UFC Fight Night 123 and Frankie Edgar at UFC Fight Night 128. In his last match at UFC 227, Renato Moicano stopped him via rear-naked choke in the first round.
UFC 233 is already stacked with many interesting fights. Kron Gracie fights Alex Caceres at his Octagon debut. The former ONE FC and Bellator Welterweight champion, Ben Askren, faces Robbie Lawler. The 125-pound clash between Henry Cejudo and Bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw could headline the event!
What are your thoughts on Jose Aldo Vs Cub Swanson 2? Aldo is one of the most perfect strikers in the history of UFC! Swanson is better on the ground. It would be very interesting if he takes the Brazilian down!
