Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is assembling an interesting featherweight showdown for the upcoming UFC Fight Night 92 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1, according to MMA Fighting, scheduled for the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Aug. 6, 2016.
Cub Swanson vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri.
After taking a year off from combat sports to recharge his batteries, Swanson (22-7) returned to action at UFC on FOX 19 last April, taking a hard-fought unanimous decision win over Hacran Dias. Kawajiri (35-9-2), meanwhile, is looking to rebound from his unanimous decision loss to Dennis Bermudez back in February.
UFC Fight Night 92, which is expected to feature "Prelims" on the UFC Fight Pass digital network, also includes the featherweight brouhaha between Yair Rodriguez and Alex Caceres (details). Expect more fight card announcements in the coming weeks, if not days.
