He was not afraid of extradition to Sweden. He was afraid that if he was detained by UK authorities, US authorities would request extradition to answer for his activities surrounding Wikileaks' publishing of US classified materials (I want to say in relation to the materials leaked by Chelsea Manning). He is still holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy because the UK warrant for questioning is still in place and Assange still is afraid of being extradited to the US. Even though Sweden dropped the case against him, US authorities still have an interest in questioning him about items he leaked YEARS ago, let alone everything he's done since.
