The second of two UFC fight cards this weekend will be headlined by Cub Swanson and Jeremy Stephens.
With five consecutive wins, Swanson has emerged as one of the top contenders in the 145-pound class. Now ranked No. 4 among featherweight title hopefuls, Swanson will look to earn a shot at the 145-pound championship by beating Stephens impressively on Saturday.
After losing three in a row at 155 pounds, Stephens made a desperation move to the featherweight class. The weight cut has produced immediate results for Stephens, who is 3-0 at 145 pounds and will have a chance to break into the Top 10 against Swanson.
Here is a closer look at how Swanson and Stephens match up against one another as their important clash approaches.
