Before UFC featherweight contender Cub Swanson dismantled Denis Siver at UFC 162, he told a reporter that he wanted to display “Beautiful destruction”, Swanson said. That is exactly the picture he painted. Siver was outmatched by the aggressive Swanson who seemed to consistently be in his opponents face. That athletic, intelligent form of aggression is something as a fighter Swanson thrives on. As a coach, and one of California’s best young developers of MMA talent, that is what he demands.

UPC Unlimited 16 at the Agua Caliente Resort and Spa, featured several of Swanson’s TRU MMA fighters.  Both Dionisio Ramirez and Jaime Sierra brought that consistent pressure and aggression that is eerily reminiscent of their coach. Ramirez landed a jab that sent his opponent staggering, and then like Swanson, Ramirez utilized unrelenting pressure to take his opponents back and secure the choke, early in the first frame.

Jaime Sierra also won in dominating fashion. Sierra utilized his tremendous wrestling skills to dominate position, and immediately had Alex Guitierez in trouble. Once he was able to posture up, Sierra unleashed a swarm of stinging ground and pound that forced the stoppage at just 1:18 of the opening round.

With Ramirez and Sierra making waves with the UPC unlimited organization, and with older brother Steve at (12-1 MMA) the future looks pretty bright for TRU MMA. With Swanson racking up wins in the UFC, the present looks pretty solid too!

  1. Beautiful Destruction is a pretty line from Cub. Sort of like Rogan saying Anderson is a Ballet of Violence.

    • goes back even further, to Bob Waters great writer for Newsday who always spoke of fighters in the most elegant of terms. Even the knocked out appeared majestic. He once described how a obviously KO’d fighter was dancing like a marionette (the puppets) would with a drunk puppeteer !
