Watching ‘Lil’ Steven Swanson fight is eerily reminiscent to watching his younger brother, UFC Fighter Cub Swanson. Both have aggressive styles, that lead too entertaining scraps that rarely contain a wasted moment. Going back too last year, Swanson was 10-0, at the top of a burgeoning division, and admittedly even he was drinking his own cool aid!

Then after dominating his 11th opponent for most of the fight, a flailing triangle choke from bottom came out of no where, and cost him the fight and his undefeated status. A few months later another submission loss followed, this time an armbar not only ended the  night, but caused a serious injury.

“It wasn’t just the ground fighting, my cardio was gone as well.” Swanson said.”What I have come to realize, is that 90% of people need to feel the loss, in order too stay hungry.” Swanson said. The consecutive losses not only gave Swanson perspective, they pointed out glaring holes in his game. Holes not in technique or in skill, but in his general approach too the sport. “When I was 10-0 I was on top of everything, I wasn’t training as hard, and I let my ego kind of slip in.” Swanson said.

Now, Swanson has rededicated himself too his craft. With younger brother (UFC Featherweight contender) Cub Swanson in his corner, the elder Swanson has learned to harness and organize his ruthless aggression. “One of the hardest things for me is the controlled aggression, because I want to go in there and rip there heads off, but if you throw a few of those swings, then there goes your gas tank!” Swanson said. “I’ve learned how to control that,  and its a lot harder than people think…to be calm when someone is wailing punches at you.”

With him every step of the way is his brother, sometimes with just a word of advice. “Its sometimes difficult for me being the older brother taking advice from my younger brother, but he is so level headed and so its hard for me to argue.” Swanson said. “I can’t tell you how much he has helped me, and when I’m fighting its all business!”

That business is thriving in the desert. “We are a different breed in the desert!” Swanson said. With the Swanson brothers, Dionisio Ramirez, Jaime Sierra, Gareth de la Cruz, Troy Guerrero, Christian Santiago and the rest of his TRU MMA teammates, it would be difficult to argue. Together they have amassed one of the most impressive records on the regional scene, placing several fighters on the UFC and Bellator MMA’s  immediate radar.

Swanson will make his next appearance fighting under the UPC banner, at “Up and Comers 18” on January 4th at the Agua Caliente Casino. As of the interview, he still had not received his opponent yet. “Typically I just look at the record, and watch a little video, but I dont like too dwell on him.” Swanson said. “I’d rather concentrate on my own training.”

For Swanson, the return to the cage offers a chance to display his new found “organized destruction” in front of a large crowd and in a grand venue. “Not only is the venue absolutely beautiful, its in my home town, and my family is from that tribe so it makes it that much sweeter!” Swanson said.

A win in front of his family and friends will not only return the elder Swanson too his winning ways, but it might be enough to carry him to the next level.

Bamma USA has gained a reputation in the Mixed Martial Arts community for being one of the best promotions around. There are numerous reasons to bestow such praise for Brett Roberts and his crew, however the simplest reason is also the most important. They put on exciting fights. There are no free rides.  “Match ups, make fights!” In Bamma USA, the matchmaking is what makes the difference.

Badbeat 11 continued that trend, despite major issues that would have folded a lesser promotion. After loosing 1/2 of the main event, the promotion unlike most was able to find a extremely suitable competitor on short notice. Mehdi Baghdad (8-3) stepped in for E. Chavez who had to pull out of the fight due to injury, leaving Dionisio Ramirez (7-4) out of a title fight, and with a very dangerous opponent on short notice.

Both fighters gave an outstanding effort, that had the crowd standing at several points.  The first round found both fighters landing big, with neither giving any ground. After a very entertaining five minutes, both fighters emerged for the second round with neither staking a convincing claim to the first frame.

In the second though, Baghdad began to find his range, and after dropping Ramirez with strikes, he quickly transitioned to the back, securing the choke and the win at 1:53 of the second round.

Earlier in the evening John Hackleman Jr (son of famed striking coach of the same name) made his pro MMA debut, winning via TKO in the very first round. Hackleman jr, utilized his superior Muay Thai strikes, and dominate range to level a very tough Edward Hyman (0-1) at 1:07 of the very first round.

David Duran (2-1) was able to secure his second consecutive ‘Be First Clothing’ KO of the night bonus, edging out Aaron Wetherspoon (9-4), Chris Costello (3-2), and Jack May (6-0) who all won impressively either by KO, or TKO.

Mayhem Miller and Uriah Hall Incident:

Unfortunately and through no fault of the promoters the evening was marred with a black eye, because of one disgusting incident that has made headlines. Apparently Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller and Uriah Hall had words over a female(that may or may not be the same female who had filed assault charges against Miller earlier this year). When Hall try to calm things down, Miller began taunting him.

As this was happening, several reporters and security began to separate the fighters. It was at that point, a few racial slurs were uttered, and a right hand from Hall was issued in response. At that point Hall, who although upset, conducted himself with dignity the whole time, began seeking a way out of the arena.

Hall was escorted by security to the parking lot, not because he was being removed, Or because he was seeking out Miller, but because he simply wanted to go home. Security was there to ensure Miller didn’t return. Which to his credit, he did not!

Commentary: 

Much has been written already about the incident, most by people who weren’t even there. Debates have started, both defending and attacking Miller. Emotions were high, horrible things were said, and a punch was thrown. Is that enough for you to pass judgement on someone? Maybe it is; maybe this incident added to a few others is enough for some to feel comfortable passing judgement. However, sometimes good people do stupid things, when they are in pain or personal turmoil. It is no excuse for bad behavior, nor is it a ‘get out of jail free card’, but maybe it is a cry for help.

Hopefully, Hall doesn’t receive any punishment, and Miller gets the help he needs (only of course, if he feel if he is in need!) I for one, would love to see the resurrection and redemption of a very talented fighter named Jason Miller, not this angry Tyler Durden version of one of the most charismatic fighters in MMA history!

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!
