  • Chad Mendes: Rematch Against Cub Swanson Would End with Another Win By: Sherdog.com Staff

    Chad Mendes, on “Beatdown,” discussing how he thinks a rematch against Cub Swanson would play out:

    “I’ve been watching Cub his last few fights and he’s been looking really good, but I just think [with] the wrestling background, I’m just a lot more athletic than he is. I remember fighting him before and the strength difference, it was a big difference. I felt like I was a lot stronger than Cub. Who knows, maybe he’s been working on that, but I think the outcome would be the same.”
