Cub Swanson Recovering From Elbow Surgery

Cub Swanson Recovering From Elbow Surgery

UFC featherweight contender Cub Swanson is on the road to recovery after having surgery Monday to repair issues with his elbow.

Swanson (20-5) has won his last five UFC bouts since debuting in the company back in 2011 with a loss to Ricardo Lamas. That includes finishes vs. Dennis Siver, Charles Oliveira, Ross Pearson and George Roop.

“I’m out of surgery,” Swanson posted on Twitter. “They cleaned out all the bone fragments out of my elbow. Can’t wait to be training again.”

Swanson is likely to compete in early 2014 and against a formidable contender with a possible future championship match on the line thanks to his two wins this year.
