Cub Swanson and Ricardo Lamas

Cub Swanson and Ricardo Lamas

Now that the main event for the first UFC on Fox event is set – heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez will put his belt on the line against Junior dos Santos on Fox – the roster for the supporting cast is sure to fill up fast.

The UFC on Saturday announced a featherweight bout pitting Cub Swanson against Ricardo Lamas for the Nov. 12 event in Anaheim, Calif.

Swanson (15-4) has twice been slated to make his UFC debut, both times against Erik Koch, but both times he has had to withdraw due to injury. Maybe a switch in opposition will bring him better luck in his attempt to finally fight in the Octagon.

If the fight goes off as planned, it will be one day more than a year since Swanson last fought. He won a split decision over Mackens Semerzier at WEC 52 last November.

Lamas (10-2) finally made his UFC debut in June with a TKO finish of Matt Grice. That bout also served as Lamas’ first in his new weight class. He had previously fought at lightweight before dropping to 145 pounds to face Grice.

The Velasquez vs. dos Santos bout will be the only live fight on the one-hour UFC on Fox telecast. If the fight ends quickly, the remaining time will either feature one or more tape delayed undercard bouts or a highlights package.
