Cub Swanson, a 42-fight veteran and one of the longest-tenured active UFC fighters, is set to face Andre Fili at UFC 303. Swanson acknowledges that the end of his career is near, but he couldn’t imagine doing anything else in life but fighting in the octagon.

In a pre-fight news conference, Swanson opened up about how MMA “literally saved his life.” He explained that during a challenging period, the sport provided him with structure, humility, and direction. “I was lost,” Swanson said, “and this sport gave me purpose. It’s taught me many life lessons, and I wouldn’t be who I am today without it.”

Is Cub Swanson Retiring After UFC 303?

Swanson had considered retirement before his close decision win over Hakeem Dawodu last August. However, he isn’t ready to set a specific date for his last fight. “I take every fight like it’s my last,” he shared. “I’ve solidified myself as a fan favorite, and at this point, it’s just icing on the cake.”

Owner of nine UFC bonuses, including a Hall of Fame induction for his Fight of the Night win over Dooho Choi at UFC 206, Swanson continues to embrace the sport with excitement. “At this point in my career, I’m trying to have fun,” he said. “When I’m out there having fun, I have my best performances.” As Swanson steps into the octagon at UFC 303, he reflects on how MMA has shaped his life and career.
