Cub Swanson duking it out with Dennis Siver this summer

Dennis Siver - MMAWeeklyFeatherweight Cub Swanson has put together one of the nicest runs at 145 pounds in some time, scoring four straight triumphs including a recent outpointing of Dustin Poirier. While he may need another win or two before cementing a title-shot, the 29-year old Jackson’s MMA product will definitely have a chance to stamp his name as a frontrunner for the opportunity when he faces Dennis Siver at UFC 162.

UFC officials have confirmed the clash’s addition to the July 6 lineup also featuring featherweight fights between Frankie Edgar-Charles Oliveira and Chan Sung Jung-Ricardo Lamas.

Swanson’s streak has improved his career mark to 19-5. He has finished fourteen of the foes he’s beaten including Oliveira, George Roop, and Ross Pearson.

The 21-8 Siver is also backed by some decent momentum, taking out Diego Nunes and Nam Phan since moving down to featherweight. Like Swanson, Siver is known for ending his adversaries evenings before time expires, owning nine wins by way of submission with another five by knockout.

    I think Swanson outworks Siver to a 3rd round TKO

    Good. This is the fight I wanted instead of Cub vs Edgar like so many were calling for.
    It also sets up a Cub vs Jung fight for the vacated FW belt when Aldo moves up to LW after beating Pettis.
