Two top featherweights riding high on win streaks of five and three, respectively, will square off in the main event of tonight's (Sat., June 28, 2014) UFC Fight Night 44 event at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, live on Fox Sports 1, as Cub Swanson battles Jeremy Stephens. That title shot is getting closer.

Swanson:

"I believe Jeremy is one dimensional. Jeremy's got that one punch knockout and he's got it every round, but I hit pretty hard too, and I think I'm more accurate. I'm not going out there to play it safe. I believe you've got to make a statement every fight. I want to make it look easy. I put that pressure on myself to go out there and dominate in a fashion that it just looks beautiful."

Stephens:

"Our fighting style just speaks for itself. We're two great fighters, we're two hungry men that are fighting for that strap. I'm going to go out there and dictate the pace and put the pressure on him. Once he gets hit by me he'll understand he's not in there with a regular character. He's really going to feel the steel. I can knock this guy out in the first or the fifth round. I mean, you got two guys with serious momentum coming right at each other. It's going to be nothing but fireworks. It's going to be a scrap; it's going to be a war. I can't stop, won't stop. I'm going straight to the top. Nothing's going to get in my way. Everything he's good at I just feel like I'm better at it. I'm going to go out there and prove it. I'm going to put a whooping on Cub Swanson."
