Video: UFC Fight Night 44's Cub Swanson stops Ross Pearson in 2012


Cub Swanson has been on one of the biggest tears in the featherweight division, and if he extends it on Saturday, a long hoped-for title shot could await.

Swanson (20-5 MMA, 5-1 UFC) is set to take on Jeremy Stephens (23-9 MMA, 10-8 UFC) in the main event of UFC Fight Night 44, which will be the UFC’s debut in San Antonio. A win will give him six straight, and in his current five-fight run, he has four knockouts and three fight-night bonus awards.

In the second fight of his streak, Swanson met Ross Pearson at UFC on FX 4 in Atlantic City, N.J. To open up the televised main card, Swanson went toe-to-toe with Pearson in the first round.

But in the second, he was in a bit of trouble against the Brit. But out of nowhere, he landed a front kick, and as Pearson kept coming forward, he knocked him off his feet with a left that Pearson never saw coming.

Check out the full fight above. Then don’t miss Swanson’s main event against Stephens on Saturday at UFC Fight Night 44, which airs on FOX Sports 1 (10 p.m. ET) from AT&T Center in San Antonio.
