UFC 206 Fight Card Grows, Adding Exciting Featherweight Fight

Swanson vs. Lobov Green Lit for UFC Nashville, but de Lima Misses Weight Big

The UFC 206 fight card for Toronto is coming together quickly, as the UFC on Thursday added an exciting featherweight match-up.

Company president Dana White named Daniel Cormier vs. Anthony Johnson the UFC 206 main event on Wednesday, before officials added Cub Swanson vs. Dooho Choi on Thursday.

Swanson (23-7) had been streaking towards a UFC title shot, but had his dreams dashed by consecutive losses to Frankie Edgar and Max Holloway. He got back on track this earlier this year with back-to-back victories over Hacran Dias and Tatsuya Kawajiri.

A victory over Choi would put Swanson back in the thick of title talk.

Although Choi (15-1) isn't ranked as high as Swanson, he is currently in the midst of a 13-fight winning streak. He has won 12 fights by way of knockout, including all three of his UFC starts.

UFC 206: Cormier vs. Johnson takes place on Dec. 10 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
