Cub Swanson: My Fight With Dennis Siver Is To Determine No. 1 UFC Featherweight Contender

Cub Swanson is reporting that his upcoming bout with Dennis Siver at UFC on Fuel TV 7 will be to determine a new No. 1 contender in the UFC’s featherweight division.

Swanson (18-5) has won three straight, all by knockout or TKO. In his last fight, Swanson stopped Charles Oliveira. He also owns TKO victories over Ross Pearson and George Roop.

Siver (21-8) is a 6-1 in his last seven, including two consecutive wins. His lone loss during his current run came while competing at lightweight to Donald Cerrone in 2011.

Swanson actually faced current UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo back in 2009. The two were paired up in a title-eliminator with the WEC, and Aldo scored an eight-second victory via TKO after delivering a double flying knee.
