UFC Fight Night 212: Jonathan Martinez vs Cub Swanson 10/15/2022 Odds
The fighter known as “The Dragon,” Martinez (16-4, 7-3 UFC) is on a three-fight winning streak and is 5-1 in his last six matches. The Los Angeles native looks to catch a big fish in his hopes of moving into the UFC rankings. Nine of Martinez’s 16 wins were by stoppage and seven of them were knockouts. He also has the endurance to last fights as his last four wins were by decision. The 28-year-old looks to beat Swanson and pick up his fourth consecutive win that will also benefit his status in the UFC in the long run.
A veteran of 40 fights, Cub Swanson (28-12, 13-8 UFC) has fought with the best fighters in the UFC. He has wins over Charles Oliveira, Dustin Poirier, Dennis Siver and Ross Pearson. After winning over Artem Lobov, the 38-year-old suddenly experienced a tailspin, losing four consecutive matches against Brian Ortega, Frankie Edgar, Renato Moicano and Shane Burgos. Swanson broke the streak in October 2019 when he outclassed Kron Gracie. He would make a comeback in December 2020 and beat Daniel Pineda by knockout. The two-game win streak was cut short after succumbing to a one-round technical knockout to Giga Chikadze. He would bounce back with a win over Darren Elkins with a one-round TKO that was induced by spinning wheel kick and a series of punches. Swanson looks to spoil Martinez’s ascent and a win over the up and comer would put him up the rankings once more.
