"Killer Cub" Swanson returned to the octagon after 14 months with a second-round knockout of Daniel Pineda in UFC 256 in the featherweight division.
The Coachella Valley native made quick work of Pineda in his first fight after having knee surgery for a torn ACL and MCL.
His last fight was a win over Kron Gracie in October of 2019. The 37-year-old's career UFC record is 27-11-0.
"Killer Cub" gave a shoutout to the Coachella Valley after his dominating and emotional victory.
