UFC officials announced the new bout on Wednesday.
Looking to build on a current three fight win streak, Cub Swanson returns to action in early 2013 with his eyes on the ultimate prize of getting a title shot next year.
To move one step closer to that goal he’ll first have to go through German heavy-hitter Dennis Siver.
Undefeated thus far in his featherweight career, Siver dominated Nam Phan at least weekend’s UFC on Fox 5 card, and now hopes to pick up another win to vault him into top ten status by facing Swanson in England.
The Swanson vs. Siver fight takes place as part of the UFC on Fuel 7 card headed up by the bantamweight title fight between Renan Barao and Michael McDonald.
