UFC Fight Night 108 did two things on Saturday. 1. it gave fans a chance to see Cub Swanson throw heavy leather, and 2. it improved Artem Lobov’s stock in the UFC.
When it was all said and done, Cub walked away with the win and his opponent gave notice to folks wondering why the hell he was in a UFC main event in the first place. And per the usual, the MMA community let their thoughts be known on Twitter.

The Cub Swanson rebuild is complete for me. After suffering back to back losses to Frankie Edgar and Max Holloway that’s 4 wins in a row.

Cub Swanson is underpaid.#UFCNashville

Cub Swanson calls for the winner of Jose Aldo and Max Holloway. Unless Yair Rodriguez beats Frankie Edgar, he’s as good a candidate as any.

Cub Swanson wins a fun five rounder as big favorite.

That was a great fight. Proud of my brother Artem! What a ride it’s been for the Russian Hammer. In a career filled with ups and downs he has never backed down from anything. Nothing but love and respect always my brother ❤
