Swanson (27-12 MMA) will enter Saturday’s fight looking to rebound from a first round TKO loss to Giga Chikadze from back in May. Prior to that setback, ‘Killer Cub’ had earned back-to-back wins over Daniel Pineda and Kron Gracie.

Meanwhile, Darren Elkins (26-9 MMA) will enter UFC Vegas 45 on a two-fight winning streak, his latest being a TKO victory over Darrick Minner back in July. ‘The Damage’ has gone 6-4 over his past ten Octagon appearances overall.

Round one begins and Cub Swanson has his hands very low to start. He looks very confident early on here. He steps into the pocket and unloads a combination. Darren Elkins answers with a overhand right. Swanson side steps and then unloads a crisp combination. Another big punch from ‘Killer Cub’ and Elkins goes down. He quickly scrambles back up to his feet but gets rocked by another sensational combination from Cub. Darren is down again. Cub pounces on him and begins to unload punches in bunches. A spinning wheel kick now. The referee steps in and stops the assault.
