Cub Swanson and Brian Ortega are set to make their respective cases for a shot at featherweight champion Max Holloway following the official UFC Fight Night 123 weigh-in on Friday in Fresno, Calif.
Ranked No. 4 and No. 6, respectively, Swanson and Ortega are each knocking on the door of the title shot.
Swanson, who weighed 146 pounds for their non-title main event, has been knocking on the door of a title shot for years, but has never quite tipped fortune to his favor. Having won four consecutive bouts, a victory over Ortega would make him difficult to deny.
At 12-0 with 1 no contest result, Ortega certainly makes a strong case for title contention. Adding Swanson’s name to a hit list that already includes the likes of Diego Brandao, Clay Guida, and Thiago Tavares would also propel him to the front of the race for a contention.
We’ll find out on Saturday when the undefeated 26-year-old takes on grizzled veteran and perennial contender Cub Swanson. Coming off an exciting victory over Artem Lobov in his last fight and facing an uncertain future with the UFC, Swanson will be looking to knock Ortega down a peg.
