Cub Swanson colliding with Dennis Siver at UFC on Fuel 7

Dennis Siver v Nam PhanTwo featherweights looking to make the transition from rising contender to legitimate title-threat will face off on February 16 when the UFC heads to London, as the organization has announced a bout between Cub Swanson-Dennis Siver will serve as the evening’s co-headliner at UFC on Fuel 7. Both men have found success in recent rumbles and are riding the momentum of a respectable winning streak.

The 18-5 Swanson has been one of the hottest 145ers on the UFC roster as of late, stringing together strike-based stoppages over George Roop, Ross Pearson, and most recently Charles Oliveira. Seven of Swanson’s victories have involved a TKO finish with another seven coming by way of submission.

Meanwhile, Siver picked up a convincing decision win over Nam Phan last weekend at UFC on FOX 5 to make it 2-0 at featherweight since dropping down from 155 pounds. He holds an overall record of 21-8 including past triumphs over the likes of Diego Nunes, Matt Wiman, Spencer Fisher, and George Sotiropoulos.

Swanson-Siver is the latest tilt added to a card already featuring a number of interesting match-ups in addition to a title-fight between bantamweight interim champion Renan Barao and wunderkind Michael McDonald in the main event.

    This looks like an early candidate for Fight of the Year, to me. Both of these guys have looked wicked awesome at this weight.

    Cue the fireworks!

    I’m definitely a fan of this matchup as well. Should be interesting to see how Swanson deals with Siver’s size.
