Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to "The Garden State" later tonight (Sat., April 18, 2015) for its UFC on FOX 15 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, taking place inside the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
In a main card battle of talented strikers, established veteran Cub Swanson will try to quell the uprising of 145-pound phenom Max Holloway, and the winner might not be that far off from a 145-pound title shot. That could depend on what happens here.
Swanson (21-6) is 6-1 over his last seven fights with four knockouts, notching signature wins over Jeremy Stephens, Dennis Siver, and Dustin Poirier. Holloway (12-3), meanwhile, is riding a five-fight winning streak with four violent finishes. He recently whooped Cole Miller at UFC Fight Night 60 in Colorado.
