UFC Welterweight Champion Woodley Serves as Analyst for FS1 UFC FIGHT NIGHT: SWANSON VS. LOBOV

Stann and Grisham Call the Fights on Saturday

LOS ANGELES – UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley (@TWooodley) and retired lightweight contender Yves Edwards (@thugjitsumaster) serve as analysts on the FOX Sports desk with host Karyn Bryant (@KarynBryant) for UFC FIGHT NIGHT: SWANSON VS. LOBOV on FS1 and FS2 on Saturday, April 22. Reporter Laura Sanko (@laura_sanko) interviews fighters on-site.

Retired middleweight Brian Stann (@BrianStann) joins blow-by-blow announcer Todd Grisham (@GrishamMMA) to call the fights live from Nashville, Tenn. UFC bantamweight Erik “Goyito” Perez (@Goyito_Perez) and Victor Davila (@mastervic10) call the Spanish language telecast on FOX Deportes.

The five-round headliner features the surging No. 4-ranked featherweight Cub Swanson (24-7) versus hard-hitting European standout Artem Lobov (14-12-1, 1NC) in an explosive showdown. According to FOX UFC Analyst Daniel Cormier, these two will deliver an exciting headliner. “Cub Swanson is willing to engage the young guy in these types of all-action fights. You know Artem Lobov is going to come forward, throw big punches and try to secure a knockout. But Cub’s not going anywhere. He will stand in front of him and fight him strike-for-strike.” Watch the extended preview from last week’s FS1 UFC POSTFIGHT SHOW here.
