Erik Koch to fight Cub Swanson
"Rising star Erik Koch, who took home Fight of the Night honors at the stacked UFC 128 event, will take on Cub Swanson, who earned Fight of the Night honors in his last fight," White said Tuesday night.
In his most recent fight, Koch knocked out Raphael Assuncao in the first round to improve to 12-1-0. That bout took place last month in Newark, N.J.
Swanson will bring a 15-4-0 record into the Octagon. He defeated Mackens Semerzier by split decision in November at WEC 52.
