Report: Dennis Siver Out of UFC on FUEL TV 7, Dustin Poirier Now Facing Cub Swanson
By FCF Staff
According to multiple reports, featherweight Dennis Siver has been forced out of a scheduled February 16th bout with Cub Swanson, and as a result, Dustin Poirier will face Swanson at the UFC on FUEL TV card. The reason for Siver’s withdrawal was not disclosed.
Poirier (13-2) is coming off a first round submission win over Jonathan Brookins at the TUF 16 Finale in December, after being choked out by Chan Sung Jung last May.
Swanson (18-5), on the other hand, is riding a three fight win streak and knocked out Charles Oliveira in his last outing at UFC 152 in September.
The UFC on FUEL TV 7 card will be hosted by London’s Wembley Arena and will feature interim bantamweight champion Renan Barao versus Michael McDonald in the main event.
