Swanson vs. Lamas Wiki Update Wiki
The seventh bout of UFC on FOX 1 featured Cub Swanson taking on Ricardo Lamas in the featherweight division.
Swanson landed some low kicks early, caught a low kick from Lamas, only to have Lamas acrobatically flip out of the situation. Lamas shot in for a takedown that initially appeared like it might be stuffed, but he was able to power through and plant Swanson on his back. Lamas worked hard to pass guard but found himself defending a deep guillotine choke from Swanson. Lamas, in serious danger, stood back to his feet with Swanson still on tight. Lamas finally popped free and the fighters playfully taunted each other. Swanson nearly had Lamas in a choke with his legs, clearly holding an advantage in the grappling department. An exciting first round, mostly controlled by Swanson.
Swanson missed on a big spinning back pick, Lamas landed a takedown but looked to be again outclassed with Swanson looking for submission holds. Lamas delivered some big elbows, mostly blocked by Swanson's forearms, and then in a surprising turn of events, Lamas deftly transitioned to an arm-triangle choke. Swanson, caught deep in trouble, had no way to escape and was forced to tap after an action-packed round and a half of fighting.
The official end came at 2:16 of the second round with Ricardo Lamas winning by submission. Speaking with Joe Rogan in the post fight interview, Lamas commented, "I wasn't tapping, he was going to have to put me out... my grandmother passed away a week ago today, and I'd like to dedicate this fight to her... Once I realized what he was going for and I get that a lot in the gym, I was able to lock in the arm triangle."
