Following Max Holloway’s successful, featherweight title defense last weekend at UFC 218, UFC Fight Night 123 this Saturday also features a pivotal bout at 145.

That’s because in the headliner of the Fresno, California card, Cub Swanson will take on fellow contender, Brian Ortega. As the event nears, Swanson is sitting in the #4 spot at 145, and Ortega is occupying the #6 position.

Recently the UFC posted the video below, which is Swanson’s memorable, 2013, stoppage win over Dennis Siver. More recently the rugged and dangerous vet earned a decision win over Artem Lobov, and in doing, Swanson extended his winning streak to four.
