Swanson vs. Stephens to Meet in June

Featherweight contenders Swanson and Stephens meet in Texas this June...

There will be a featherweight showdown at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday, June 28, as Cub Swanson and Jeremy Stephens have verbally agreed to meet in a UFC Fight Night main event where they will attempt to prove who deserves a shot at longtime 145-pound king Jose Aldo.

Winner of five straight, a streak that includes knockouts of George Roop, Ross Pearson, Charles Oliveira, and Dennis Siver, Swanson will test his stand-up game against one of the hardest punchers in the sport in Stephens, who is 3-0 since moving to the featherweight division in 2013.
