‘The 3 to Flat 9’

With Swanson expected to face rising star Brian Ortega 12/9/17 at UFC Fight Night 123, I figured I’d finally cover one of the most creative and exciting fighters in MMA.

Because I constantly use the number system in my breakdowns, and the variety in which Cub Swanson employs them in an improvised manor, the title ‘3 to Flat 9’, a technique in jazz improvisation (these numbers refer to degrees of the scale above the root note of a given chord in a chord progression) seemed applicable. This is a bebop, “Birdman” approach to improvisation, not unlike targeting, nor striking for that matter.
