The UFC is returning to Fresno, California later tonight (Sat. December 9, 2017) from the Save Mart Center.
In the main event, UFC featherweight veteran Cub Swanson will square off on rising 145-pound contender Brian Ortega.
Swanson is currently enjoying a seven-fight win streak, which includes last April’s drubbing of Artem Lobov at UFC Nashville. Ranked No. 4 at 145 pounds, the former (WEC) standout is inching his way closer to a Max Holloway rematch.
He’ll first have to dispose of No. 6-ranked Ortega who quietly amassed four consecutive wins.
The co-main event will feature Jason Knight take on Gabriel Benitez.
