After his victory over George Roop, Cub Swanson is now a force to be reckoned with in UFC.
In the second UFC fight of his career, Swanson delivered some incredible punches to knock out Roop. At the 2:22 mark of the second round, the fight was stopped.
He landed a devastating right, before jumping on top of Roop to finish off the fight.
This knockout demonstrates how dangerous Swanson is.
An injury forced him to take a year off, and Swanson lost his first fight back. Now, however, it looks like he's ready to become a force in the featherweight division.
Swanson has incredible power. His strikes are incredibly vicious, and he can be compared to the top fighters in the featherweight division.
Obviously, a title is a long way away. However, with such power behind his punches, Swanson is not someone people will want to fight.
At 1-1, he will be looking to bolster his UFC record. Once he does that, he could have a shot at the title.
Even without a title shot, Swanson is a very good fighter. He has a lot of experience from his time in the WEC, which will translate to UFC.
Obviously, it isn't the same level of fighting, but it will definitely help Swanson moving forward. For other featherweights in UFC, they will definitely want to avoid Swanson for as long as possible.
As evident by his KO over Roop, he is a force to be reckoned with.
