Cub Swanson didn’t have the best Saturday night in Newark. The featherweight entered the octagon looking to shake off a loss in his last bout, and had a 23-year-old in front of him. But that 23-year-old, Max Holloway, put a beating on him and left him with some major injuries. Swanson tweeted about said injuries after the bout:
Well a broken jaw and a broken right hand…just another day at the office lol. I love all my fans. Thanks for your support ❤️

Swanson (21-6, 6-3 UFC) never really got much going in the bout, with Holloway using deft movement and a variety of offensive weapons to keep Cub at bay. He was eventually submitted with a guillotine late in the third round. Swanson hasn’t said at what point in the bout that he suffered the injuries.
Swanson has dealt with hand injuries for years, having surgery on them before.
