"I don't beg." That's what Cub Swanson told Jon Anik when asked who he wanted to face next after winning an entertaining striking affair against Jeremy Stephens. While he may have refused to call people out, other featherweights won't hesitate to do so after Swanson's stock rose last night. That list includes a certain Korean slugger who took to twitter just seconds after the fight ended:
@CubSwanson Fight me.— Chan Sung Jung (@KoreanZombieMMA) June 29, 2014
Chan Sung Jung is currently ranked as the 5th best featherweight, but he hasn't fought since August of last year, when he suffered a fluke shoulder injury during his title fight against Jose Aldo. While Swanson may have people convinced he deserves a title shot, I have to say that a potential slug fest against the Korean Zombie is also a very appealing option if the timing is right.
