Hacran Dias Says He’s Fighting Cub Swanson at UFC on Fox 19

By Tristen Critchfield Jan 30, 2016

Hacran Dias will lock horns with Cub Swanson at UFC on Fox 19, according to a post on Dias’ Twitter account.

The Las Vegas-based promotion has yet to make any announcements regarding UFC on Fox 19, which is expected to take place in Tampa, Fla., on April 16. The card will reportedly feature a lightweight showdown between Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Dias enters the matchup on a two-fight winning streak. The Brazilian outpointed Darren Elkins at UFC Fight Night “Machida vs. Dollaway” in December 2014 before earning a split verdict against Levan Makashvili this past June. The 31-year-old is 23-3-1 over the course of a career that began in 2005.

A six-fight winning streak from January 2012 to June 2014 launched Swanson into the featherweight title discussion, but the California native has since dropped back-to-back contests, most recently falling to Max Holloway at UFC on Fox 15. Swanson owns notable wins over the likes of Jeremy Stephens, Dustin Poirier, Charles Oliveira and Ross Pearson.
