Dan Miller vs. Sean Pierson and Charles Oliveira vs. Cub Swanson are set to make their way to the octagon in Toronto.
The UFC has announced via their official Canadian Facebook page a pair of new match-ups for UFC 152 in Toronto, Ontario.
Miller (14-6-1NC) will look to make it 2-0 since dropping to the welterweight division. His debut win in the division was a fancy guillotine submission over Ricardo Funch at UFC on FX 4, which won him ‘Submission of the Night’ honours.
Pierson (12-6) got back to his winning ways, when he picked up a decision win over Jake Hecht at UFC on FX 3. The Toronto native will look to use hometown advantage to go on a two fight win streak.
The other match-up announced is a fantastic featherweight tilt between two of the divisions best.
Oliveira (16-2-1NC) is riding a two fight winning streak, with victories over Eric Wisely and Jonathan Brookins. The Brazilian will look to have another impressive fight, as he takes on the very dangerous Cub Swanson.
Swanson (17-5) has won his last two fights with impressive TKO’s and has gone 2-1 since moving over to the UFC from the now defunct WEC. His latest victory was over former TUF winner Ross Pearson, where Swanson picked up ‘Knockout of the Night’ honours. He will look to push his winning streak to three at UFC 152.
