Giga Chikadze will look to continue his undefeated UFC run when matched with Cub Swanson on May 1st. The new featherweight bout was first reported by adjarasport.
The matchup joins a card that does not have a confirmed location at the moment.
Chikadze has picked up five wins since joining the UFC roster in 2019. He earned his first stoppage victory in the promotion late last year, catching Jamey Simmons within a round with strikes.
Chikadze was quite active throughout 2020, fighting four times in the year. The 32-year-old Georgian now gets a slow start to his 2021, as he will be coming for the first time five months into the year.
UFC veteran Swanson will be looking to earn his third consecutive win. He made his return from injury in December, defeating Daniel Pineda in the second round with strikes.
Swanson was competing for the first time after he was sidelined by a torn ACL.
