Longtime WEC fighters will meet once more, as Jose Aldo and Cub Swanson will meet each other in a rematch at UFC 233. The fight will occur on January 26, 2019, which is just about a decade after their first match.
The fighters first fought back at WEC 41, preceding even Aldo’s featherweight championship win. The session lasted only eight seconds, with Aldo getting that notable double flying knee that folded and gravely cut Swanson at the very beginning.
The two men are have been pillars of the WEC and UFC featherweight division for a considerable length of time, with Aldo being the champion or a top contender for some time now. It’s a rematch that was taking shape for around ten years, yet the planning doesn’t exactly bode well at this point.
It would’ve been a spectacular bout a year ago when Swanson was riding a four-battle winning streak and was resembling a genuine title contender. Presently, the 35-year-old is falling off three losses misfortunes as of late.
Aldo, then again, may have dropped fights to Max Holloway in 2017; however, he is coming falling off a noteworthy TKO win over Jeremy Stephens last July. He will most likely be unable to unseat the present champ; however, the featherweight legend still reminded everybody that he’s still among the top in the game.
