A classic battle of a cagey veteran vs. a real up-and-comer is heading to Fresno.
Swanson (25-7) has been on the national radar since joining the WEC in 2007. The JacksonWink MMA competitor is on a four-fight win streak and has seven Fight of the Night bonuses to his credit, including in each of his past two fights.
Ortega (12-0, 1 NC), meanwhile, has proven an exciting competitor in his own right. The native of Los Angeles’ South Bay region has won four straight bouts, with Fight of the Night awards in two, including for his most recent win, a third-round submission of Renato Moicano at UFC 214.
