Video: UFC 162's Cub Swanson trains with WBO boxing champ Timothy Bradley

Cub Swanson calls on longtime friend and current WBO boxing champion Timothy Bradley for a little help in training. Cubby is set to bang it out with Dennis Siver at UFC 162 next month in Las Vegas.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight contender Cub Swanson has friends in high hot places.

Namely, WBO World Boxing Champion Timothy Bradley, who became a household name just over a year ago with his shocking upset over former pound-for-pound great Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas. "Desert Storm" took a close split decision win over "Pac Man" after 12 rounds of action.

Now, he's going to see if he can hang with Swanson, who is training for his UFC 162 fight against Dennis Siver on July 6, 2013 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, with the winner perhaps making a case for a shot at the 145-pound crown.

Right behind this guy.

UFC 162: "Silva vs. Weidman" is headlined by a middleweight championship contest as top-ranked pound-for-pound fighter and longtime 185-pound kingpin Anderson Silva puts his title on the line against undefeated Chris Weidman.
