The card for UFC 99 in Cologne Germany continues to take shape. Yesterday the addition of a welterweight fight between Mike Swick and Ben Saunders was confirmed by MMAWeekly. At this point the bout has been verbally agreed to, but no papers have been signed.
Both fighters were last in action at UFN 16: Fight for the Troops in December. On that night Swick gained a quick knockout victory over UFC veteran Jonathan Goulet, in just over thirty seconds. Saunders on the other hand issued a severe beating to UFC newcomer Brandon Wolff that lasted just under two minutes. Saunders had been slated to take part in the upcoming UFC 96 in Columbus, Ohio but was forced to withdraw due to a foot injury.
UFC 99 is expected to be headlined by a 195lb catch-weight bout between Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva. For more information on UFC 99, visit our UFC 99 Rumors page.
