Cub Swanson is being really undervalued here based on the odds. Swanson has had plenty of fights in his UFC career, but he still has the power to cause all kinds of issues in this fight. Look for Swanson to put the pressure on early in this fight and Martinez isn’t going to be able to handle it. Back Swanson on the money line.
