Swanson-Stephens Set For UFC Fight Night Main Event

Featherweights Cub Swanson and Jeremy Stephens will compete in a five-round main event in Texas later this year.

Officials announced the bout for UFC Fight Night on June 28 from San Antonio. It is the only fight made official to date.

Swanson (20-5) has won five straight, including four finishes, since a 2011 loss to Ricardo Lamas. He has been pushing for a title fight vs. Jose Aldo since his TKO victory vs. Dennis Siver last July.

Stephens (23-9) has resurrected his career since moving to featherweight, including recent wins over Darren Elkins and Rony Jason. The veteran had lost three straight before winning his last three.
