Frankie Edgar Asks For Title Shot After Finishing Cub Swanson, Says He Deserves It

Frankie Edgar used his performance on Saturday to remind Dana White and the MMA community at large that he never went away.

After a convincing win over Cub Swanson that saw him snap his opponent’s six-fight winning streak, Edgar says that since Swanson was promised a title shot if he won, the spoils should now go to the new victor.

“This had a little more implications just because that title shot’s looming, and certain people were promised it,” Edgar said on the FOX Sports 1 post-fight show. “I just beat the guy who was promised it, so I’m hoping I take that spot.

“Based on what Cub has done in his past six or seven fights, the tear he’s been on, and being able to go out there and finish him — I would’ve loved to have done it a little quicker — but I think I’ve done enough. Based on everything else I’ve done in my career, I think I’m that guy.”
