On Thursday at International Fight Week, the 2022 UFC Hall of Fame ceremony took place and local legend Cub Swanson was one of the inductees.
"The next thing I'm most proud about is never giving up. Because I have been knocked down many times, I have lost a couple of battles," said Swanson. "But I never thought I would lose the war, and here I am."
Swanson, a Coachella Valley native, has a 28-12 MMA record and has the third most wins in UFC Featherweight history (13).
The 2022 Hall of Fame class also featured former two-division champion Daniel Cormier and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
