Dennis Siver Versus Cub Swanson Confirmed For UFC on FUEL TV 7
By FCF Staff
Fresh off an impressive, unanimous decision win over Nam Phan at UFC on FOX 5 Saturday, Dennis Siver already has his next opponent, as the UFC has announced the featherweight will battle Cub Swanson February 16th.
The key featherweight tilt will be part of the UFC on FUEL TV 7 card, which will take place at London, England’s Wembley Arena.
Swanson (18-5) is riding a three fight win streak, which includes stoppage wins over George Roop, Ross Pearson and most recently Charles Oliveira, who he KO’d at UFC 152 in September.
Prior to facing Phan, Siver (21-8) worked his way to a unanimous decision win over Diego Nunes at a UFC on FUEL event in February, which marked his featherweight debut. The German fighter decided to drop down from lightweight after he was submitted by Donald Cerrone last October.
The UFC on FUEL TV 7 card will be headlined by a bantamweight bout between interim champ Renan “Barao” and Michael McDonald.
