Cub Swanson's UFC Contract Expired, Dana White Wants New Deal

UFC Fresno: Marlon Moraes starches Aljamian Sterling in first round

Earning "Fight Of The Night" honors was the evening's headliner between Brian Ortega and Cub Swanson. The aura of everyone in the hotel ... When you have so much positivity around you, especially during fight week, I could tell I was the only fighter still left in the lobby and everyone is sleeping and anxious about the fight and I was playing dominoes and having fun, hanging out until 2 in the morning. I chopped it up and had a great time. I feel like he deserves one more for his career.

UFC President Dana White was cage side at UFC Fight Night Fresno and he says that the promotion will negotiate with Swanson. "Hopefully we can get something done and I can keep him happy; I want him to be happy". He was outside the cage.

"I want to see how Frankie Edgar is feeling", a classy Ortega said at the UFC Fresno post-fight press conference (h/t Sherdog.com). "I'm going to enjoy family over Christmas and all that and try not to be in low spirits".

Ortega was awarded a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus, but was also one half of the Fight on the Night award, as Swanson had been fighting well, leading on all three scorecards, before Ortega submitted him.

Moraes checked from a kick with his left foot to a knee which caught Sterling flush on the jaw and sent him crashing to the mat in a shot now being hailed as a contender for "Knockout of the Year".

Marlon Moraes came into Saturday's main card both fresh off of a razor close split decision win against John Dodson and looked to make a quick turnaround to get himself among the title contenders in the bantamweight division.
