UFC on ESPN+ 19 breakdown: Can Cub Swanson bounce back against unbeaten Kron Gracie?

The octagon lands in Tampa, Florida this weekend with a card packed with competitive matchups at UFC on ESPN+ 19.

Arguably the most intriguing matchup comes in the night’s co-main event, as one of the most seasoned contenders in the UFC featherweight division, Cub Swanson, goes head to head with undefeated grappling ace Kron Gracie.

Swanson (25-11 MMA, 10-7 UFC) has been in with the best at 145-pounds, but his recent run of form has been the worst of his UFC career. Swanson has lost his last four bouts, but they have come against top competition and he has been competitive in each of them. That knowledge makes gauging his form, aside from the pure win-loss numbers, a tricky task ahead of his bout with the undefeated, but significantly less-experienced Gracie (5-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) this weekend.

But that’s exactly what MMA Junkie’s fight analyst Dan Tom has attempted to do this week as he looks to cut through the pure stats and assess the matchup itself ahead of Saturday night’s co-main event clash.

Check out the fight breakdown in the video above.
