Cub Swanson isn’t getting a simple struggle to use of the recent funk.

The 35-fight veteran has been matched up using up and coming featherweight Shane Burgos (11 1 ) for the UFC’s up coming trip to Ottawa on May 4, also that the promotion announced Wednesday.

“Killer Cub” is in a slump dating back to April 20 17, his last victory a unanimous decision win over Artem Lobov. Swanson’s last 3 fights have experienced him filed by Renato Moicano, outpointed in a rematch using Frankie Edgar, also also submitted by Brian Ortega. Ahead of those declines, Swanson (25-10) had won four straight and 10 of 1 2. He’s earned eight Fight of the Night awards in his time with all the UFC and also World Extreme Cagefighting.

In five UFC appearances, Burgos, 28, has twice collected Battle of the Night bonuses. He found the fastest win of his career in his last outing against Kurt Holobaugh at UFC 230 in November, submitting him using an armbar 2:11 to the opening round.

UFC Ottawa will comprise Light-weights Donald Cerrone along with Al Iaquinta in the main event and happen at Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario. The principal card will broadcast on the ESPN+ streaming service.
