Cub Swanson vs Dennis Siver Added to UFC 162 | UFC NEWS

Two UFC featherweight stand outs will come together, in what should make an exciting stand up battle, when Cub Swanson and Dennis Siver meet at UFC 162.

Swanson, on a four fight win streak, and most recently coming off a very impressive victory over Dustin ‘The Diamond’ Poirier, is on the hunt for UFC gold as he believes another win will put him right up there as the top contender for the featherweight strap. He showed in his performance against Poirier that he isn’t just in there to fight, he’s in there to make his run at the top of the featherweight division.

His opponent, Dennis Siver, however is looking to make his own name as a featherweight. Since moving down from lightweight  Siver  has gone (2-0) with wins over Diego Nunes, and Nam Phan. Dennis Siver will be a tall order for any featherweight and surely believes a win over an opponent like Swanson will skyrocket his place among the UFC Featherweight Rankings.

The two will face off at UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman on July 26th, 2013 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

  1. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    This is a good one. Swanson may just have too much movement for Siver?!

  2. Broman says:

    Swanson is ducking Edgar. It’s okay, they’ll meet up after they both win their next fight, and then we’ll get to see Edgar knock Swanson out

    • GET RID OF NATE "The Cheat" (forever) says:

      Hard to believe Edgar is 1-4 in his last 5 fights. Still think maynard got robbed in their 2nd fight when maynard knocked Egdar down 6 times in round one and only received a 10-8 round. If Edgar hadn’t turned his back and ran away he would have been finished for sure

    • magoo says:

      I dunno man I’m a fan of both fighters Cubs really focused and looking good…him and Edgar would be a great fight. I highly doubt he’s ducking him though!

  3. 123 says:

    Cub Swanson wins this all day, everyday.. knockout or submission

  4. GRT 3000 says:

    this one sucks the big one. both fighters are has beens. what the hell is the UFC thinking…

  5. Ddddddd says:

    A good matchup with Siver being as accomplished and Cub being accomplished and a super coordinated dude.

  6. Nick needs Money says:

    Cub should be able to tee off I think but Siver is a fireplug…Siver beat Nam Pham who came in on on a weeks notice so he only has one solid win since dropping down…

  7. YoMama says:

    Cub looked unreal his last few fights. Siver is in for a long night because he will not be able to keep up. Still gonna be a war.

  8. KIDD433 says:

    Cub did duck Edgar,Edgar called Cub out and Swanson turned it down.Not a warrior move.In fact pretty chicken shit.Never expected that from Cub

  9. Gargoyle Wrestling says:

    If Swanson was offered Edgar and he turned it down, then he is scared and will lose to Frankie. If he thinks he is not ready for Edgar after his past few fights, then when will he be ready? The answer is never because he isn’t mentally strong enough. This is a mental game and, if Swanson really did turn it down, then he’s lost.
