With very lop-sided odds, this Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 108 main event between Cub Swanson and Artem Lobov has so many fellow fighters picking Swanson that it is almost looking like a mismatch. After all, Cub is ranked No. 4 in the featherweight division right now and Artem isn’t even in the top 15.
Here’s a couple of our favorite quotes from James Lynch’s Parting Shot: Pros Pick:
“I think Lobov, the best thing in his life is he is one of the closest friends of Conor McGregor. Nobody understands that matchup [Swanson vs. Lobov] and I feel, not bad, [but] I’m sure Cub Swanson doesn’t want that fight. That wasn’t his first pick. But he’s making main event so that is always good. ” -Patrick Cote
“I’ve never been a fan of Artem’s because he’s Conor’s little boy or whatever and if Cub will go out there and just wrestle him, he’ll kill him. Artem’s got a chance to knock anybody out but other than that he’s horrible and I’d love to get a fight with him.” -Adam Townsend
