A high profile featherweight clash between Dennis Siver and Cub Swanson has been booked as the co-main event for UFC on FUEL TV 7 on February 16th.
UFC on FUEL TV 7, aka UFC London, takes place from the historic Wembley Arena. The event is headlined by interim bantamweight champion Renan Barao taking on Michael McDonald.
Siver (21-8) is fresh off an impressively one-sided unanimous decision win over Nam Phan at UFC on FOX 5. He has won two straight bouts since dropping down a weight class to compete at featherweight. He also defeated Diego Nunes by decision at UFC on FUEL TV 2.
Swanson (18-5), an import from the WEC, has been a destructive force during 2012. He has won all three of his fights by stoppage within two rounds. In his most recent outing at UFC 152 he knocked out submission specialist Charles Oliveira in the first round. He also recorded second round technical knockout wins over Ross Pearson and George Roop.
