Dennis Siver Out, Dustin Poirier In To Face Cub Swanson At UFC On Fuel TV 7

An injury has knocked Dennis Siver out of UFC on Fuel TV 7. In his place will step Dustin Poirier, who will meet Cub Swanson in the co-main event.

The card takes place February 16 from London’s Wembley Arena.

Swanson (18-5) had previously stated that the match with Siver would determine the next contender at featherweight. However, it remains to be made official by the UFC if that stipulation will carry over now that Siver has been forced out.

Poirier (13-2) was looking at a potential title shot before falling to Chan Sung Jung in early 2012. He rebounded to defeat Jonathan Brookins last month.
