Erik Koch vs. Cub Swanson at UFC 132 in Las Vegas, Nevada

WEC imports, Erik Koch and Cub Swanson will meet in what will have to be an exciting featherweight bout at UFC 132 in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 2nd, 2011.

UFC President, Dana White: “Rising star Erik Koch, who took home Knockout of the Night at the stacked UFC 128 event, will take on Cub Swanson, who earned Fight Of The Night honors in his last outing.”

Koch did indeed earn that “Knockout of the Night” bonus when he dropped Brazilian, Raphael Assuncao just last month in New Jersey, making that his third straight win, not bad for a youngster who has only dropped one unanimous decision in his entire career.

Swanson, who will make his octagon debut, hasn’t been seen since picking up a split decision win over Mackens Semerzier at WEC 52 in November. The two were originally set to meet on the UFC on Versus 3 card last month only for an injury ruled Swanson out.
